Uber Eats Revenue and Usage Statistics (2024)

David Curry

Updated: July 8, 2024

Uber Eats was one of several experimental services trialled in 2014, as then-CEO Travis Kalanick tried to use the company’s ride-sharing platform to break into other transportation sectors.

Originally, Uber Eats delivered a fixed price menu in a small Santa Monica, California test area. The service soon expanded to include Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, and more local restaurants were invited to join. Within a year, Uber Eats was available in Barcelona, New York, and Chicago.

Uber has held first position in many countries for food delivery, although it has had to scale back in the past few years. It ended service in South Korea and India in 2019 and in several Eastern European countries in 2020. It also entered into an agreement with Russian search engine Yandex to leave Russia.

In its home market, Uber has been in fierce competition with DoorDash, which surpassed Grubhub to become the most popular food delivery service in 2019. Uber bolstered its position in July 2020 with the acquisition of Postmates for $2.65 billion.

Uber takes a cut of between 20 to 30 percent of all orders, a high margin but one that has become commonplace with the growth of DoorDash. In some regions, Uber Eats is profitable, but the company as a whole is bolstered by its profitable mobility segment.

That said, Uber Eats has reported lower losses year-on-year, so potentially as the market consolidates, it may reach a point of profitability.

Uber Eats (and other food delivery services) are attempting to reduce costs further through the use of “dark kitchens”, which are set up by restaurants in cheaper locations and only focus on delivery. Uber recently announced it would stop providing the real-estate for these kitchens, but it has paved the way for many chain restaurants to use them.

In 2020, Eats became central to sustaining the business, as Uber’s ride hailing platform saw 50 percent less revenue than a year ago. That reversed in 2022 with mobility leading the way in revenue and profit, and the gap has widened in 2023.
