UberEATS, a delivery service platform powered by Uber, became available for Chapel Hill and the Triangle area Wednesday.
UNC student Jade Danford-Klein said she would be interested in UberEATS if it becomes a cheaper option since she tends to choose not to deliver her food to save money.
“I’m excited to have UberEATS on campus and I think it’ll be good for a lot of people who don’t have cars but are sick of eating on Franklin Street,” she said.
She has used delivery service before however, she has not yet used a service like Takeout Central or UberEATS.
Co-founder of Takeout Central Wes Garrison said he acknowledges that UberEATS holds potential to be tough competition for Takeout Central. Unlike other new businesses that have previously tried and failed to tap into the delivery service market in Chapel Hill, Uber holds enough resources and expertise to not dwindle out as quickly, he said.
