Uber is looking to expand their food delivery service Uber Eats.This can be said, as the San Francisco based tech giant is in talks to acquire a London based rival food app Deliveroo for £1.5bn reportedly.
Deliveroo is one of Europe’s biggest successful startups, founded in 2013 by American businessman Will Shu, and Greg Orlowski. Deliveroo procures contract employees as couriers who deliver food from local restaurants in around 200 cities all over the UK, the European Union, Asia, and Australia. The firm has expanded in 11 Countries in almost 5 years. The scaleup is also one of the prime rivals of Uber’s own food delivery service Uber Eats.
