Following their launch in Nigeria two years ago, the ride-sharing app, Uber Inc., today is supporting local Nigerian business by uniting with the community to help Nuli Juice continue its operations. On Thursday Uber will assist by delivering a combo deal to the doorsteps of Nuli fans .
On Thursday, between 8am – 11am, users in Lagos can request a Nuli combo by sliding to the Nuli option on the Uber app, selecting request and watching in anticipation while their combo is en route. The combo deal includes a Fiesty Chicken wrap and a small juice for N2000 (roughly $7 or UGX 24,000).
Ebi Atawodi, General Manager for Uber West Africa in a statement said, they love celebrating cities and a #MadeinNigeria business! Since the recent loss of the Nuli Juice store in Ikoyi.
“We are heartbroken by the loss of our store but we are deeply grateful to Uber and our community for supporting us in this difficult time. The support from drivers, riders and Uber will help us get back on our feet and to continue to deliver to our loyal fans,” says Ada Osakwe, Nuli Juice founder.
Uber users requesting #UberNuli, are asked to head outside when their driver arrives at the requested destination, to ensure speedy drop-offs.
