You’re in luck if you’ve been hoping for a new food and grocery delivery option.

Residents in Fort Frances and Dryden now have access to Uber Eats.

In a release on Wednesday, the company announced it had expanded operations to 14 new municipalities in the province, including the two northwestern Ontario cities.

There will be no wait time for services as the company began hiring drivers before opening operations in the new areas.

The addition of delivery service will create additional job opportunities in the community and expand convenient access to food.

Beer Store locations have also been added to the app, creating access to alcohol without needing to leave the house. LCBO locations in the Greater Toronto Area have been added to the app as well, but it is unclear if this service will be expanded beyond that area.

The other cities getting Uber Eats access are Renfrew, Fort Frances, Gravenhurst, Arnprior, Hanover, Goderich, Ingersoll, Listowel, Wallaceburg, Dryden, Aylmer, Braeside, Appleton, and L’Original.
