While everyone watches Uber’s stumbling market share and frequent bad press, its food delivery service, Uber Eats, is doing well—really well. It’s the fastest-growing company among meal delivery services and is bringing in, dollar for dollar, nearly as much new spending as the industry leader, Grubhub. Uber Eats now claims a larger market share than Grubhub in 15 major U.S. cities, including two markets that Grubhub dominated just six months ago.
