As the Uber Eats app continues to navigate its way through the local food delivery industry, its latest expansion in Soweto is now ready, adding Meadowlands East and Orlando to the areas available for delivery.

According to Uber Eats, Soweto has proven to be a significant milestone for the popular food-delivery app. Since May 2019, Soweto has been a strong performing area for Johannesburg city in terms of consistent weekly growth, with Jabulani, Pimville, Orlando East and Diepkloof open for delivery.

The company believes the family-run restaurants in Soweto has proved to be a firm favourite amongst users, as is the case with local favourite restaurant, Just Badela.

Situated at the heart of Vilikazi street, Dumile Badela decided to open the modern restaurant, butchery and wine cellar back in 2016 to bring locals the food they wanted, when they wanted it. Since joining the app, Just Badela has seen tremendous growth with weekday sales having risen by almost 30%- 40%.

Uber Eats believes it has been able to provide a platform for other local foods, tastes and entrepreneurs like Wandies, Just Badela or Moja Cafe to grow their business. Apart from the incredible growth prospects in Soweto, Uber Eats has given locals convenient, reliable and affordable food delivery.
