Busselton residents will now have more options when it comes to food delivery after Uber Eats officially launched in the area. The tech giant, which operates the biggest food-delivery platform in Australia, announced its expansion to five new regional hubs in WA and NSW. Many cafe and restaurant owners are signing up their businesses and are starting to deliver food and drinks for the first time. Coffee Heads is getting on board and co-owner James Tischhauser said it was an oppurtunity to reach a bigger audience. “We’ve already introduced our brand to the general public, we’ve had media publicity, but I suppose after that honeymoon phase and having so many great options available down here, I think this is really going to remind people that we are available down the road or just introduce people in general,” he said. “For us, we found it such a convenience for people who are using Uber Eats more and more, as it’s channelling to people that may not know about our brands to order from us and utilise arguably the number one tool in terms of ordering food online.” As food delivery can be a very different experience from ordering in store, Mr Tischhauser said the business is doing their best to make sure customers receive the best product possible. “We pride ourselves not just for convenience, but for quality as well,” he said. “I suppose the concern is that with delivery you do have to compromise the time that is taken on consuming, but we do have a lot of customers who come through the drive through and eat their food after they arrive at their next destination 10-15 minutes later and it’s totally fine. “We are going to be reading reviews and do our best to make sure our customers have the best experience possible.” People in the Busselton area are able to order food directly to their homes from various cafes and restaurants from August 30.
