delivered with Uber
Delivering exclusively with Uber
Both brands have embraced the growing trend to online ordering and delivery, making their menus available to customers on the Uber Marketplace, as well as on their own websites and online ordering apps. We spoke with Matt Smith, Chief Marketing Officer of One Table Restaurant Brands to understand how they are working with Uber to grow their online business, one delivery at a time.
Growing across channels with Uber Eats and Uber Direct
Tender Greens and Tocaya set high standards for their customer experience across all aspects of their food and the service. Having experienced the reliability of the Uber delivery network before and during the pandemic, they felt confident choosing Uber Direct as their exclusive partner for delivery of online orders received through their branded websites and online ordering app. With Uber Direct, they maintain control over the entire customer experience, from enabling customers who order directly from the Tender Greens and Tocaya apps to earn loyalty points to keeping customers in the loop on their same-day delivery status.
Can data be delicious?
Working with Uber to serve customers who order online from the Uber Eats app, as well as from their own branded websites and apps, provides OTRB with many advantages. One of the most important is access to customer insights and macro data that helps OTRB react to consumer trends more quickly, and make more informed business decisions. As an example, OTRB brands use macro data from Uber to define optimal delivery areas for each location.
"One of the biggest advantages of the Uber platform is that there is just so much data available to us to help us make smarter decisions."
