(Pocket-lint) – Uber Eats is expanding the range of services you can order in quite seismically, adding the ability to have meals delivered to you nationwide in the US in a new update.
This change means that a limited range of merchants in a few cities, including New York and Los Angeles, can now package and ship frozen meals packed with ice so you can reheat them when you receive them.
Depending on how far you are from these merchants, you will likely have to wait five to seven days for delivery before following the instructions to prepare the meal.
This option can prove comforting if your favorite restaurant in a faraway town ends up signing up, though the airline miles on that meal might be a bit off.

You should be able to find the affected restaurants on the Uber Eats home page, by scrolling down to the “Nationwide Shipping” section. From there, you can add food to your cart and checkout as you normally would, but without expecting fast delivery.
From what Uber Eats said, Fedex will be handling the shipping, so you’ll be able to track your order through their usual tracking system once it’s on its way.
