Uber Eats has a restaurant manager feature

When any restaurant chooses to sign up with Uber Eats, they get a tablet in which there is a feature called restaurant manager. This can literally take over the entire restaurant process for the restaurateur. This can also give plenty of data like statistics related to the customers who are ordering from the restaurant so that the merchant can improve their services.

There are tons of users in the app

Uber Eats is growing in its number of customers as it aims to find its way into every nook and cranny of the country. This is also the no.1 choice for delivery drivers as they get way more delivery requests here than other apps. And thus, the restaurants who are partnering with Uber Eats will never face a dearth of customers and can always grow in business.

The delivery system is reliable

Uber Eats employs millions of delivery drivers through independent contracts. The main aim of these drivers is to bring the foot nice and hot to the customer in a short span of time. The platform also motivates and incentivizes the drivers in such a manner so that they try their best to maintain the quality of the dish all the way from the merchant to the customer’s dining table.

The app comes up with new marketing ploys

Uber Eats launches many new marketing ploys and schemes in order to drum up business for its restaurant partners. The best way for a restaurant to join in this scheme is to get ‘featured’ on any one of Uber Eats categories that it rolls out for that particular marketing tactic. This can be a cuisine type, fast delivery, reduced prices, free sides or drinks or any other similar thing.

The support is very trustworthy

Uber Eats is fitted with great support for not only its users but also its restaurant partners. This can be experienced from day one as the company representative takes time to explain the process to the user and also gives them the necessary tools. The most enticing dishes in the restaurant’s menu are also taken pictures off in order to tickle the taste-buds of the customer.

There is a dual rating system here

There is a dual rating system in Uber Eats. This means that the customer will not only give a rating for the delivery driver but also for the restaurant merchant. In addition to this, they can also give their reviews. This can be highly helpful for the restaurants as they can use the feedback to improve their services.

Customers get live feedback from the app

Once the customer has placed an order from the restaurant merchant, they will be able to track the location of the order until it reaches them. They will also be alerted through push notifications which can come through the app or even through SMS or emails. In this manner, the restaurant can be sure that the customer will be alerted of any delays or changes in the order.

This is great for COVID-19 times

On-Demand food delivery apps found their footing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Uber Eats is a great option for those restaurants in regions where customers are still hesitant to dine-in due to COVID-19 fears.
