  • Uber Eats is using proprietary data to suggest virtual restaurant ideas to operator partners

  • Uber is dominating the food delivery game and new experiment suggests more to come

On this episode of On Foodable Weekly: Industry Pulse, we're looking at Uber Eats' newest experiment, virtual restaurants

That's right, the tech giant is taking another leap into the restaurant industry. This time, they're using their stores of data from UberEATS to analyze gaps in food offerings in American cities.

For example, Uber saw that a community in Chicago was searching the UberEATS app for fried chicken. But with no fried chicken-focused restaurants in the, area Uber approached one of their operator partners with the information. Knowing that SiPie Pizzeria had the right equipment, Uber proposed the idea of a whole new restaurant focused on fried chicken that is available only through the UberEATS app. The new concept, Si's Chicken Kitchen has since surpassed the original concept in delivery revenue. 

Watch the episode above to learn more about Uber's innovation in the restaurant industry.
