Uber Eats is trying to take a bigger bite out of the food delivery market in Jupiter and beyond.
Wednesday marked the formal launch of the Uber Eats app and website in Stuart and Port St. Lucie, with expanded service in Jupiter. For a $4.99 fee, the rideshare service’s drivers deliver food from participating restaurants in a service area including Port St. Lucie, Hutchinson Island, Stuart, Palm City, Stuart Beach, Jensen Beach and Jupiter.
More than 40 participating restaurants are said to include Bagel Boyz, Kyle G’s Prime Seafood, Nitrogen Bar, Grill and Sushi, Taj Mahal, The Taste of India, Vic & Angelo’s and others, plus chain restaurants including Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, Burger Fi, Duffy’s, Freshii, IHOP and Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill.
Juan Pablo Restrepo, general manager for Uber Eats in Florida, declared his operation “excited to work with the restaurant community in St. Lucie, Martin and Palm Beach counties,” creating “new economic opportunities for delivery-partners.”
