There’s nothing quite better than having your favorite foods delivered straight to your door! Uber Eats, an online food delivery service, is here to support you and small local businesses. The company just announced that they will be offering free delivery in the U.S. and Canada from local restaurants. This is an effort to encourage Uber Eats users to make food purchases from local, independent establishments.
“We’re working urgently to drive orders towards independent restaurants on Eats,” Sallenave continues. “We’ve waived the Delivery Fee for the more than 100,000 independent restaurants across US & Canada on Uber Eats.” said the Head of Uber Eats Us & Canada, Janelle Sallenave.
Not only is Uber Eats supporting small businesses by offering free delivery to guests but the brand is also going to make daily marketing campaigns to promote delivery from local restaurants. You’ll begin to see these campaigns through email and the Uber Eats app.
The company will also be rolling out a new payment option for restaurants. Additionally, users can also make specific requests to have their deliveries left on their doorstep.

To thank them for their dedication and hard work, Uber Eats will be offering 300, 000 free meals to the dedicated workers.
