Uber Eats launches in Dhaka

Starting today, April 30th at 12 PM, on-demand food delivery app Uber Eats has officially been launched in Dhaka. The app is to work in a similar way to other food delivery services present in Bangladesh. Although with the added reliability of global corporation Uber.

Not all of Dhaka though, yet

Uber Eats has partnered with over 150 restaurants at launch. These include Pizza Guy, Chillox, Cheez, Madchef and Sultan’s Dine. It will be available in key neighbourhoods of the city like Baridhara, Banani and Gulshan at launch. No, not Uttara.

Separate apps

This is to reiterate that the Uber Eats app is distinct from its Uber or Uber Driver apps. Uber Eats aims to make the food delivery process seamless and swift. It allows consumers to live track the progress of their order. It also allows scheduling an order ahead of time.

More competition?

While the advent of a global giant corporation like Uber might not be good news for local companies, it is advantageous for consumers. Uber’s massive resources allow it to establish lower prices than would be usually available. And increased competition between service providers is always good news for consumers.
