Next, you’ll reach out to Support at firstname.lastname@example.org with a menu, hours, photos of your food (we can also coordinate photography), and POS integration.

Once everything is confirmed, we’ll launch your virtual restaurant as a new merchant in the Uber Eats marketplace and you can start taking orders.
Frequently asked questions
- What is a virtual restaurant?

This program allows you to create new brands and deliver new cuisines to customers, without the risk and expense of opening another physical location.
