Uber Eats food delivery coming to Lincoln

Food delivery competition.

Food delivery services including the likes of Deliveroo are in for some added competition in Lincoln after Uber Eats announced it would be launching in the city.

Uber Eats is a delivery application designed for local restaurants and currently works with over 100,000 restaurants across the world.

Uber Eats creates a page for restaurant/food businesses that is then marketed to the local community, generating orders.

From the orders that are generated through Uber Eats, companies are then connected to a delivery partner to deliver these orders on the firm’s behalf.

“Due to customer demand, we are moving into the area [Lincoln].”
