Uber Eats was one of several experimental services trialled in 2014, as then-CEO Travis Kalanick tried to use the company’s ride-sharing platform to break into other transportation sectors.
Originally, Uber Eats delivered a fixed price menu in a small Santa Monica, California test area. The service soon expanded to include Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, and more local restaurants were invited to join. Within a year, Uber Eats was available in Barcelona, New York, and Chicago.
Uber has held the number one position in many countries for food delivery. Uber Eats is available in 6,000 cities, with 600,000 supported restaurants
