It would seem as though Uber is one of those companies that comes into a city, disrupts the status quo, causes chaos, and then happily and merrily moves along to the next city. Along the way, they introduce new things business ventures that are usually just a slight variation on their tried and true model. Though UberPOOL – a way for ordinary drivers to arrange for carpools with complete strangers – has been in the news recently, what interested me more today had to do with food.
It rained today, and I really didn’t want to have to leave the office – wearing canvas shoes and heading to work without an umbrella weren’t exactly the best idea. I gave UberEATS a go today, and I’m sure glad I did. Plus, it was super easy.
Checking out the menu on the app, the first item there happened to be an amazing looking Smokey Steak & Cheese Pie from The Pie Commission. Yep. Sold for two reasons. One, this is one fantastic restaurant that’s located on the Queensway in Etobicoke near where I live. Two, I’m pretty sure this particular pie isn’t on their regular menu. Like I said, sold.
I confirmed my address, clicked the order button, and then just like requesting a ride through Uber, I received my driver’s name, car make and model, and licence plate. My steak & cheese pie would arrive in 5 minutes. FIVE MINUTES!
The pie was delicious. I’m so glad I gave UberEATS a go. This definitely won’t be the last time. The best part of it is that there’s new menu items every day. Yeah, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
