Uber Eats will officially launch today across restaurants in and around Penrith.
Jodie Auster, Uber Eats General Manager Australia and New Zealand, said they were excited to be extending their services out west.
“We’re excited to bring Uber Eats to Penrith locals, who will now be able to get the food they love, delivered to their door at Uber speed,” she said.
“Uber Eats will enable restaurants in Penrith the opportunity to connect with more customers and grow their business.”
The launch of Uber Eats in Penrith follows Deliveroo’s move into the area last year.
Rashay’s Penrith, Nutrition Station, The Brew Lab and Silver Spur are among restaurants that locals will be able to order from when the app launches at 10am today, with more restaurants anticipated to come on board in the near future.
Sunny Leong, manager and part owner of Manic Organic Cafe on High Street, said he was looking forward to giving their customers that extra service.
“The best thing about Uber Eats is that they are great at what they do, the deliveries are organised and they always do a good job,” he said.
“I am very excited and looking very forward to working with them closely.”
The fast food delivery service will be available for those in Penrith, South Penrith, Jamisontown, Cranebrook, Jordan Springs, Werrington Downs, Kingswood and Cambridge Park.
