It’s been two years since Uber Eats brought convenient eating Kenyans in Nairobi and now the convenience is travelling to the sandy beaches of Mombasa
Uber Eats Launches in Mombasa
As the second-largest city in Kenya, this coastal city is most popular for many reasons. This includes a vibrant mix of cultures and traditions leading to some of the most ground-breaking local coastal cuisine favourites that many enjoy.
“Making eating well effortless, every day for everyone is a top priority of ours. We understand that many Kenyan’s are going through a lot owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, providing a means for them to generate an income as they navigate through this new normal is of the utmost importance.” says Nadeem Anjarwalla, General Manager for Uber Eats Kenya.
