A POPULAR food app is expanding its delivery to Colchester.

Uber Eats has announced it will now be delivering in the town, as of lunchtime tomorrow.

Grays and Basildon will also be added to the delivery destination list.

The app, already available in more than 60 towns and cities, allows people to order food from their phone.

Uber Eats will offer delivery from favourites including McDonalds, Route 66, New Dehli and Deniz Turkish.

The app is powered by the same technology as the Uber cab app, which helps you get from A to B.

The app can be downloaded on iOS and Android, or by visiting ubereats.com.

Deliveries are available every day of the week from 8am until midnight.

Toussaint Wattinne, general manager of Uber Eats in the UK, said: “We have been blown away with how popular the app has been in Essex so we’re really excited to be expanding further into Colchester, Grays, and Basildon.

"People can now get great food at the touch of a button delivered straight to their home or office.

"We have partnered with plenty of restaurants, so we hope there will be something for everyone’s tastes.”
