Grab and Uber are getting in on the food delivery business

According to a May 7 report by The New Paper, food delivery service UberEats, an off shoot of ride-sharing company Uber, will be launching in Singapore within the next month. Sources have been quoted as saying that “at least 10 food and beverage outlets” have been approached by the service, which operates in 13 international cities including New York, Paris and Toronto. 

Now if you can’t wait for its launch, two existing food delivery services have jumped ahead with new promotions and collaborations. Foodpanda is offering customers free deliveries with every order placed from now until May 22. The company has also added new F&B partners such as Wine Connection, Potato Head Folk and Chotto Matte to its list, and more options in heartland hoods like Hougang and Sengkang. 

Not far behind, Deliveroo has announced its partnership with car sharing and taxi booking service, Grab.  From now until Aug 7, customers who book Grab services can earn up to $40 Deliveroo credits per week, as long as they complete five or more trips a week on GrabCar (Economy) or use the app’s flash feature that lets users find rides close to them.
