Committed to bringing great food through our association with reputed restaurant partners, best in class technology and robust delivery network, within a short span of time, Uber Eats has received a great response from consumers. We’re excited about launching in Pune given the city is home to colleges and corporates alike. Our aim is to help Puneites discover great food for their everyday practical eating needs through our restaurant partners and the Uber delivery network.”
Pune loves its food. The city is bustling with small eateries, cafes and fine dine restaurants. We studied the food culture of the city and found a few things that make are truly unique to Pune.
- The city has an interesting mix of modern and traditional cuisine, with fast food such as pizzas, burgers, pav bhaji and missal pav being consumed at the same rate
- Known for the love of sweets, Pune can’t seem to get over the taste of Bharakwadi, Modaks, Irani custards and Shrewsbury biscuits.
- There is a strong Parsi influence in the Pune cuisine with Bun Maska and Chai being the most popular breakfast of the city.
"We at Marrakesh are looking forward to a successful partnership with Uber Eats. Through this partnership, we are confident that we will get a higher scale, efficiency and be able to connect with a wider and more diverse set of consumers who are also already hooked onto Uber," said Imran Inamdar - Managing Partner, Marrakesh.
