UberEats – an on-demand meal delivery service powered by Uber – will be launched in Johannesburg before the end of 2016.

The City Press reported Uber managing director for sub-Saharan Africa Alon Lits said that Johannesburg will be the 13th city in the world where UberEats will go live.

“When UberEats is launched in Johannesburg, it will at first be focussed on a small area, but over time, the aim is for UberEats to be available throughout the city,” stated the report.

UberEats partners with local restaurants in a city and allows customers to order meals using the Uber app. Delivery time is claimed to be 10 minutes or less.

“Choose a signature dish from the Instant Delivery menu and you’ll be eating in as little as 10 minutes,” states UberEats.

“Have something specific in mind? By tapping into the Uber network, you can get anything from our roster of local restaurants, fast. The average order takes 35 minutes from start to finish.”
