A popular food ordering app has expanded to cover more locations in Ayrshire making it easier to get that takeaway from your favourite local delivered to your door.

Although previously available in certain parts of the region, such as Irvine, Uber Eats will now be bringing fast food to the doors of many more as it launches in three new places.

Customers can order from high street classics McDonald's and KFC which are the first restaurants to launch in the area via the Uber Eats app.

People in Ardrossan, Stevenston, Kilwinning, Saltcoats and Ayr will be able to order from the fast food giants.

Local favourites will also be joining the platform, with residents able to enjoy their favourite restaurant meals from the comfort and safety of their home.

The Redstone Inn in Ayr is one of the first to join the platform.

Locals can download the Uber Eats app on their smartphone (available for iOS and Android), or by visiting ubereats.com.

For local restaurants, a spokesperson for the company said, the Uber Eats app will mean more business with more options for delivery and thousands of potential new customers. 

Toussaint Wattinne, General Manager of Uber Eats in the UK, said: “We are really excited to be launching in [Ardeer, Saltcoats and Ayr], firstly with McDonald's and KFC, and a host of local restaurants joining in the coming weeks.

"We hope to make it even easier for local residents to enjoy a variety of delicious food both comfortably and safely.”

Uber Eats has introduced measures to help ensure that every courier can access the PPE they need for free to help keep them safe when they deliver with Uber Eats. For all deliveries as well as providing free sanitising products, Uber Eats is providing couriers with over one million masks.

The app is available every day of the week from 8:00am - midnight.
