Uber Eats: This week, Uber issued a statement and revealed that it will stop offering restaurant deliveries via the Uber Eats app. As of March 8, customers of the delivery platform will no longer have the option to order meals in restaurants and cafeterias.
As per the information, Uber Eats will continue to work, however, only for orders in supermarkets, beverage distributors and specialty stores. The company is even offering support to partner restaurants that are exclusive to the delivery platform.
“Our main goal going forward will be to provide access to the largest and best selection of supermarkets, specialty stores, pet shops, florists, liquor stores and other items in the Uber Eats app. Everything so that you can have everything you need at your fingertips, with the best possible experience, from the choice of items to delivery.

Fortunately, there are other delivery options from restaurants and snack bars that are active in several Brazilian states. With the departure of Uber Eats, the company’s customers will have to look for alternatives to ordering meals at home.
Currently, iFood is the most used food delivery app around Brazil and one of the pioneers in the area. The service is available in thousands of cities, with more than 270,000 partner restaurants and 200,000 active delivery people.
The platform also offers delivery from supermarkets, distributors, bakeries, produce, pet shops and other specialized stores. The iFood app is available for download on Android and iOS devices, but you can also order from the official website.
Despite not being the most used in Brazil, Rappi is one of the most used around the world, as it is present in 8 countries. The application was one of the first in Brazil to allow shopping in supermarkets and other specialized stores, including wholesale markets.
The application provides the Rappi Pay payment option for the most frequent users. Orders can be placed on Android and iOS devices, or on the official website.
James Delivery is also among the largest delivery platforms, as it is active in 20 Brazilian states, including the Federal District. In addition to restaurants and eateries, the application also offers delivery of orders placed in supermarkets and specialty stores.

AiQFome is now available in more than 700 Brazilian cities, accounting for more than 30,000 partner establishments.
