What we know so far about the Coles team up with Uber Eats
No more crowded shops or boring meal prep? Sign us up.
Uber Eats might just be one of the best inventions of the past five years. Whether you're too hungover to leave your couch or simply don't have the time or energy to cook, we are living in an age where instant gratification is entirely possible. And we love it.
Now, supermarket giant Coles has linked up with the delicious delivery service for the next evolution in meal delivery for the time-poor. Despite the surge in popularity of meal delivery services, a gap in the market has still remained for cheaper, healthier options. The innovative partnership is looking to bridge this gap by offering customers easy and affordable food delivered to the door within thirty minutes.
Customers can order a range of ready-to-eat meals including items such as roast chicken, deli salads, bakery items and frozen desserts. Ready-to-heat meals are also on offer and include pizzas, curries and pies. Some "Grab and Go" options and beverages are also available, with more options set to be added to the menu in the coming weeks.
Where can you order the delivery service from?
So far, the trial is only available to the lucky customers living in Pagewood, NSW. Assuming the experiment is a success, though, we might just see Coles become a permanent partner of the delivery service.
Customers can order through the Uber Eats app between 10am and 8pm for a delivery fee of $5 per order.
Coles is currently the first supermarket to partner with Uber Eats in Australia. They already offer a home delivery option that allows you to shop for your groceries online, and it is hoped that the meal delivery trial will complement this service. We're betting that it will, so get ready for life to get even sweeter when you can order frozen desserts straight to your door.
