UberEATS appoints Viral Jhaveri as GM, Mumbai

After launching in Mumbai last month, UberEATS, the food app from Uber, has expanded its coverage to the entire city, bringing food to consumers in a convenient and reliable manner. From specialty local favorites to everyday national brand names, UberEATS has now made it possible for Mumbaikars to enjoy their favourite food everytime, everywhere. To further scale the business in the city, Viral Jhaveri has been appointed as General Manager for UberEATS in Mumbai.

Commenting on the appointment, Bhavik Rathod, Head of UberEATS India, said, “We are thrilled to announce Viral Jhaveri as the General Manager for UberEATS Mumbai. He played a key role in transforming the rides business in Gujarat and are confident that he will further accelerate the UberEATS business in Mumbai.”

In his current role, Jhaveri leads operations, marketing and sales for UberEATS in Mumbai. He joined Uber in November 2015 as GM for the rides business in Gujarat, where he was responsible for launching and strengthening the operations in Ahmedabad, Surat and Vadodara. With over eight years of experience, he’s worked across sectors like e-commerce, retail, aerospace and food-tech.

Commenting on his new role, Jhaveri said, “Mumbai is an extremely attractive market for the food industry in India, offering consumers a variety of cuisines, both global and local. I am excited to use my learnings from the rides business to make UberEATS synonymous to food delivery in the city. The phenomenal response we received in just a month reflects the seamless experience consumers and restaurateurs enjoy on the app.”

UberEATS was started in 2014 as a small delivery pilot in Los Angeles and launched as a separate application in Toronto in December 2015. In the past 18 months, it has grown incredibly fast, and is now a stand-alone app available in 26 countries and in 78 cities around the globe, including India.
