You can now get food delivered to you by the tap of a button. Ubers food delivery-- UberEATS service has now expanded to the Tampa area.
The UberEATS app will deliver from full menus of well-known area restaurants, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
There is a plan to expand the service around the Bay area.
This is the first time that UberEATS has started in an area where then company's ride service is not allowed.
One restaurateur who signed up sees lots of upside to the new service.
"If you're an executive at the end of the day, you can press a couple buttons and your food just shows up. If you're a young person who has been out all night partying, your ice cream just shows up," says Suzanne Perry, co-owner of Datz, Dough and Roux.
"It's the ultimate convenience. I used to have to get off my couch to get ice cream."
