How to Start a Restaurant On UberEats

Putting your restaurant on UberEats

Having a presence on food delivery platforms is essential to growing your brand. Case in point: UberEats had over 66 million users in 2020. And demand will continually increase, as the Business of Apps forecasts people will spend as much as $42 billion on food delivery apps by 2025. Now represents a wise time to strike while the iron is hot.

What are the Benefits of Being on UberEats?

UberEats is available in over 6,000 cities. Because of its expansive reach, there’s a high likelihood it services your area. And if it does, it opens up a bevy of opportunities for your restaurant, such as:

  • Increased brand presence: For people looking to order food delivery, UberEats puts you on the map. It allows you to grow the delivery side of your business. 
  • Ghost kitchen capabilities: Perhaps, you’re seeking to expand your menu. Or, you want to operate a ghost kitchen without the high overhead of regular establishments. UberEats gives you the platform to market your menu.
  • More customer engagement tools: Customers can review your food on the platform. In turn, it gives you an avenue to engage with them to build customer loyalty. Moreover, you also receive data about ordering habits. You can use this data to adjust menu offerings, create promotions, or even offer loyalty programs.

How Do I Sign Up?

Signing up through the platform is convenient. You can sign up through its website. As part of the onboarding process, UberEats asks for your restaurant’s menu and other pertinent details like location, phone number, etc. Once you square these details, you can be up and running on the platform in as little as a few days. You handle everything through your restaurant’s dashboard.

Are There Challenges to Using UberEats?

While the platform offers your business access to a large audience, differentiating yourself from others can be challenging. Keep in mind your brand is competing for business against established national brands with huge presences and other enterprises offering similar menu items. Therefore, it can be easy to become lost in the shuffle. 

Another challenge awaiting restaurant owners is managing the tech. While you have access to your account dashboard through UberEats, having enough time to devote to harnessing these tools can be another story. With these factors in mind, separating yourself from the rest of the pack might require a fresh perspective.
