Ando, the delivery-only restaurant set up by Momofuku chef David Chang last year, has been acquired by Uber Eats.

The move comes at a time of growth for Uber in the food delivery market.

“UberEats is absolutely exploding,” Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said at a recent Munich conference.

“I think we’ll be the largest food delivery company in the world this year.”

According to its website, Ando has stopped its food service as it is beginning to integrate with Uber Eats.

“We’ve worked with Uber to power delivery from the start, and we’re excited our team and technology will play a role in their vision of building the world’s best food delivery service going forward,” Ando’s website reads.

“To all our customers, thank you for inviting us into your homes and offices. You were as much a part of this company as all of us, and it was a pleasure serving each of you.”

David Chang, the owner of the Momofuku Group of restaurants, launched Ando in 2016.

Though branded as a “restaurant,” Ando only ever provided food for delivery.

After it was founded the company partnered with Uber Eats and now the company is joining the Uber East family in an official capacity.

“We are committed to investing in technology that helps consumers, delivery and restaurant partners alike,” said Jason Droege, Head of Uber Everything.

“Ando’s insights will help our restaurant technology team as we work with our restaurant partners to grow their business.”
