According to a Forbes article published this week, Uber is now testing food experiences through its Uber Eats app in San Francisco. Such experiences include cooking classes and 5-course dinners and will be available until November 17th.
The Forbes article states “On Friday, Uber launched a new experiment called Uber Moments, which lets customers book culinary classes such as ravioli making or a five-course dinner directly through the app.” It goes on to say “The one-month, one-city trial is very limited for the global ride-sharing giant, but could signal a new revenue source for Uber and a new front for competition.”
