Getting  Started

To get started, head over to

You can learn everything you need to know about UberEATS and what it can do for your business. When ready, click on the "Get Started" button and provide your business information.

Don't have the time to go through all that? Reach out to Forward Kitchens. We can handle the entire signup process from start to finish.

Installing the Tablet

Here's what sets UberEATS apart from your primary business. Every order that comes through the platform appears on a dedicated UberEATS tablet. The tablet is part of the starter kit and is a gateway to receiving and accepting orders. You'll also receive signage to inform your physical patrons that you're now working with UberEATS.

Having that dedicated UberEATS tablet is convenient. But it forces your team to have two separate order gateways. If you want to make things easier, we can sign you up for a consolidation app that combines all your delivery app orders into one centralized location. We can even integrate it into your existing POS system, making the adoption of UberEATS even easier. Forward Kitchens can set that up for you to partner with UberEATS on your terms.

Optimize Operations

After completing the onboarding session, you're ready to start accepting orders! UberEATS takes care of all the complex logistics. That includes allowing customers to make orders, handling payments, and even delivering your food. Your job is to train your kitchen staff and prepare food quickly.

The key to success with UberEATS is to facilitate faster deliveries. Quicker order fulfillment will improve your UberEATS ranking and boost visibility on the app. Train your team to run like a well-oiled machine! Forward Kitchens is happy to help and advise you on how to optimize your kitchen for faster service.

Adding a delivery stream by working with UberEATS can significantly boost your bottom line. But it only benefits your business if you optimize costs and overall operation. The beauty of having a delivery-focused revenue stream is that it covers common overhead costs.

As a result, the revenue you earn is extra profit that can cover overheads like rent and electricity. Grow your delivery stream enough, and it could potentially cover labor costs and help expand your business!

Make the most out of the UberEATS platform. Take full advantage of the restaurant management tool. Don't treat your new delivery stream as an afterthought. Dedicate time and effort to handle cancellations, perfect your menu, gain reviews, and more! Those seemingly small details matter and can put your business well on its way to success.
