It’s our mission to bring the widest selection of food to fit the busy lives of our customers. This means working with partners that have an existing footprint and are local favourites.
We’re buzzing that our next evolution of Uber Eats is experimenting with meal delivery with Coles.
Starting today, Tuesday 29 January 2019, customers can order delicious ready-to-eat and ready-to-heat meals from Coles Pagewood, delivered to their door via the Uber Eats app.
Jodie Auster, Regional General Manager for Uber Eats in Australia and New Zealand, said: “Making food delivery more affordable and convenient for everyday meals are top strategic priorities for us. We’re extremely excited to work with Coles on this innovative partnership with a leading grocery brand.
“We believe this trial will complement the current Coles Online offering by delivering meals in an average of less than 30 minutes, which can be tracked in the Uber Eats app from the time of order to drop-off. We’re looking to expand and test both the menu and type of food available through the app over the coming weeks.”
Via the Uber Eats app, Coles Director of Fresh Food Alex Freudmann said customers will be able to order a range of Coles ready-to-eat meals including items such as roast chicken, deli salads, bakery items and frozen desserts. Ready-to-heat meal options include pizzas, curries and pies. A selection of ‘Grab and Go’ options and beverages will be on offer to complement these items.
“Coles is committed to making life easier for our customers and we are thrilled to offer our ready-to-eat and ready-to-heat range for delivery for the first time in Australia via the Uber Eats app,” Mr Freudmann said.
“Coles will be the first supermarket to partner with Uber Eats in Australia, giving our customers healthy choices at competitive prices delivered right to their door.”
Initially this offering will be limited to Uber Eats customers ordering from the Coles Pagewood store only, with a delivery fee of $5 per order and available between the hours of 10am and 8pm.
