Uber Eats Expands to Kisumu: Bringing On-Demand Delivery to the Lakeside City

Uber Eats has finally set foot in Kisumu town, bringing the total number of cities that it has operations in Kenya six. The on-delivery food app has been operating in five towns in Kenya which include Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Eldoret and Naivasha. With its venture in Kisumu town, residents should expect an array of options at their fingertips, ranging from delectable cuisines to essential groceries as well as retail items.

And as I always say, there’s always something positive with change and in this case, this particular move is good for people who live in the city because they will get more choices now. On top of that, It also helps restaurants, shops and delivery workers who will now have an opportunity to make money in a flexible way that will also help the local economy.

Kui Mbugua, the General Manager of Uber Eats Kenya, showed a lot of excitement about the launch. He highlighted how Uber Eats is dedicated to improving delivery experiences and boosting Kisumu’s economy. The platform’s seamless connection between businesses and customers ensures a wide variety of goods and services, catering to different needs and budgets.

Uber Eats has added new categories like Convenience, Liquor, Pharmacy & Wellness and Everyday Essentials which majorly show that they’re listening to what people want. This fits with its ambition of expansion to more towns within the country. Farida Salim, who’s in charge of Trade, Tourism, Industry, and Marketing in the County was impressed and noted how the move was inline with the plans the county had in terms of helping local businesses and everyone in the community.

Since it started six years ago, Uber Eats has been changing to fit what Kenyan people want. It offers food from local favorites to big stores, so there’s something for everyone. This makes things easy to get and use for everyone.
