UberEATS launches in Fresno today, enabling residents to use an app to order from among the more than 80 area restaurants that are participating.

The service is available for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even late-night orders, according to a news release.

“We can’t wait to start serving more customers through UberEATS and introduce them to our delicious meals,” said Tom Lai, owner of KoJa Kitchen, in a statement. “Our restaurant is the first KoJa in the Central Valley and we are excited to bring Korean/Japanese fusion to residents throughout Fresno.”

KoJa Kitchen is hosting a media availability this morning to discuss the new service.

The service is also a benefit to area Uber drivers, who will be the ones delivering the food, according to the news release.

A quick morning search of the app on its first day of service in Fresno lists available restaurants including area McDonald’s locations, Latin Urban Bistro, The Smokin’ Burrito, Noodle Q, Take 3 and Panda Express.

“We’re excited to be launching UberEATS in Fresno,” said Clay Carroll, UberEATS General Manager. “UberEATS will bring Fresno residents a convenient and reliable way for people to get the food they love delivered. We’re thrilled to partner with over 80 restaurants to give users in Fresno easy access to their favorites at the tap of a button.”

There’s a $6.99 delivery fee for the service, according to the news release.
