CLEVELAND– The ride service Uber is expanding to bring dinner to Cleveland foodies.

Uber will launch UberEATS in Cleveland on Wednesday with a news conference at Trentina in University Circle.

The app allows people to browse local restaurants, select their favorite dishes, pay with a card and get it all delivered to their homes. UberEATS is separate from the Uber ride service app.

Uber said it will deliver from Cleveland restaurants like Greenhouse Tavern, Lago East Bank and Fahrenheit.

The company also said it is pledging to recruit 1,000 Cleveland residents to drive for Uber by the end of the year.

“In addition to providing a seamless delivery experience for Cleveland residents, UberEATS opens up new economic opportunities for driver-partners, giving them an additional way to earn money,” Uber said in a news release on Tuesday.

UberEATS also launches in Cincinnati on Wednesday. It became available in Columbus last month.
