Monday, February 10, 2020

Delivery service Uber Eats has expanded into two more Saudi Arabian cities, launching in both Makkah and Madinah.

Assad Numan, general manager for Uber Eats in Saudi Arabia, said: “Saudi Arabia is a significant component of Uber Eats story in the Middle East region, and this expansion is part of our ongoing plans to bring our technology to as many people as possible around the Kingdom.

“We’re focused on making eating well effortless, every day for everyone, and the launches in Makkah and Madinah demonstrate our ambitious plans, and reinforce Uber Eats expansion strategy across the Kingdom. We are committed to bringing more diverse food choices and working with local entrepreneurs to unlock new business opportunities with Uber’s technology while providing a world-class experience on the app for our consumers.”

Chains including KFC, McDonald’s, Shawermer, and Baskin Robbins have signed up to the service in Madinah and Makkah.

Uber Eats will be available in neighbourhoods such as Al Shoqiyah and Al Awali in Makkah and Qurban and Sultana in Madinah, before a wider rollout across both cities in the near future.

It has partnered with over 2,800 restaurants across the Kingdom so far.
