UberEats’ debut in Korea imminent

Posted by pakin On July - 26 - 2017

[THE INVESTOR] US ride-hailing service provider Uber is gearing up to launch its restaurant delivery app UberEats in Korea soon as it eyes to take a slice of the country’s food delivery market.

Industry sources expect the service will go live as early as August, as its operator Uber Korea is speeding up partnerships with premium restaurants in Seoul. Popular restaurants located in Garosu-gil and Itaewon are on board, as well as up-and-coming and less-known outlets.

“We haven‘t decided on the exact date, but it will be within the year,” a Uber Korea spokesperson told The Investor.

In preparation, Uber Korea has been actively recruiting delivery partners for UberEats. Earlier this month, Uber Korea held an information session in Seoul to educate the staff ahead of the launch. Delivery partners will receive a flat rate for every delivery, plus extras depending on the distance traveled. The exact rate being offered is still under wraps.
