CAMDEN, NJ—Have a hankering for a Donkey's Place cheesesteak? Now, all you have to do is open an app on your phone and you can have the world-famous cheesesteaks delivered to your home or office in minutes.
Uber Eats is now available in Camden, offering food delivery with full menus from local favorite restaurants including Donkey's Place, along with other restaurants close by like Gelato Dolceria, Norma's Eastern Mediterranean Restaurant, Pho Barclay and Woksabi Asian Bistro & Sushi Bar.
"I love it," said Donkey's Place Owner Rob Lucas, who added the restaurant is launching its Uber Eats service beginning with lunch today, Thursday, June 28.
Uber Eats is an on-demand food delivery app that allows the user to have food delivered from a variety of restaurants in Camden and neighboring towns. From specialty local favorites to everyday national brands, Uber Eats offers a wide-selection of food options, all conveniently available in one place and delivered fast and fresh with the reliability you’ve come to expect from Uber.
Lucas said the restaurant currently offers delivery service, but said its limited due to staffing issues. With Uber Eats, he said, the size of the deliveries can be smaller and more frequent.
"We’ll find out today [how it goes]," said Lucas. "It sounds promising."
Uber Eats gives New Jersey eaters, restaurant partners, and delivery partners more options. Local restaurants can tap into the Uber delivery network to expand their businesses and reach a new network of potential customers. And delivery partners have access to even more flexible earning opportunities.
“We’re thrilled to launch Uber Eats in Camden, bringing a convenient and reliable way for people to get the food they love, opening up new economic opportunities for delivery partners, and enabling restaurants and chefs to connect with more customers,” said Heath Pendleton, head of launch and expansion for Uber.
