HERE we are at ToM, still trying to work out how Uber cabs work and then they hit us with UberEats. Apparently Bundobust, the Koffee Pot, Barburrito, Northern Soul Grilled Cheese, the Alchemist and 100 other food and drink operations have partnered with this service, which has opened in opposition to Deliveroo.
After London, Manchester is the second city to welcome this seven days a week home delivery service, which originated in San Francisco. As with Deliveroo, bicycles and mopeds will be used to cover a zone that includes central Manchester, the Northern Quarter and West Didsbury from 11am to 11pm. Customers order dishes on the app or via the website, and can then watch their food arrive in real-time via a live map.
Mark Husak, co-founder of Bundobust, says: “We’re over the moon to be partnering with UberEats. The people of Manchester will be able to order the most authentic Indian Street food this side of Mumbai to their homes and offices. As a new business in the city centre we are always looking at ways of spreading the good word of Bundobust and with UberEats, we are confident we can reach out to a whole new customer base.”
