Uber eats Zomato: Online food delivery and restaurant discovery platform Zomato acquired Uber Eats, the food delivery business run by Uber, for around $350 million (Rs 2,485 crore), two people in the know of the deal said. The all-stock transaction will give the US-based ride-hailing company about 10% shareholding in Gurgaon-based Zomato, they told ET. Uber Eats will cease to exist as a separate brand locally and users on its platform will be redirected to Zomato’s app, said.
Through this deal, Uber Eats India users now become Zomato users. I want to assure Uber Eats India users that their user experience won’t be compromised in any way – if at all, the scale gives us higher density to make our deliveries faster. With Zomato, you’ll realise that we share a common love for great food. Uber Eats in India will discontinue operations and direct restaurants, delivery partners, and users of the Uber Eats apps to the Zomato platform, effective today.
Uber Eats India is now Zomato. Here’s to better food for more people, and new beginnings.
