The one thing we know for certain is that the world is constantly changing. That’s why at Uber, we are always looking for new ways to better serve the millions of people who rely on us. Whether you need to get to work, order dinner for your family, or earn a little extra to meet your goal, we have you covered. And today, we’re taking an important step to help you get more of what you need when you need it: we’re officially launching grocery delivery.
Starting today, in collaboration with our partner Cornershop, customers in select cities in Latin America and Canada can order groceries through both the Uber and Uber Eats apps. And starting later this month, grocery delivery will be available in Miami, FL and Dallas, TX. In those two cities Eats Pass and Uber Pass members will receive an additional benefit, free grocery delivery on orders over $30.
Over the last six months, it’s become increasingly clear that grocery delivery is not only popular, but often a necessity. We expect to see this trend continue as people across the world look for new ways to save time and stay safe. We’re excited to be on this journey alongside the popular grocery delivery startup Cornershop to make this a reality today.
When you place a grocery order through Uber, a Cornershop team member will fulfill your order and deliver it right to your door. And as with other Uber experiences, you’ll be able to track it every step of the way and request a no-contact experience.
Today’s launch comes after much testing, and incredible consumer demand for deliveries from grocery and convenience stores on Uber, with orders increasing by 197% since March. In fact, we’ve partnered with more than 9,500 merchants to deliver groceries across 35 countries on Uber Eats. Following the Cornershop integration in select cities in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Canada, Uber plans to roll out new grocery delivery features for customers and merchants alike in the US and other cities around the world over the coming months. This is another step towards our vision of bringing you closer to the things you need, all in one place.
