Ride-hailing giant Uber on Tuesday unveiled a new app designed for ordering carryout.

UberEATS is available in Chicago as well as Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Toronto. The company promises to take the service to more cities soon.

Food delivery isn’t new for Uber. The service’s drivers have handled carryout orders for more than 18 months.

“We learned quickly that requesting a ride and ordering a meal are two very different experiences. They each deserve their own home,” Chetan Narain, UberEATS product manager, wrote in a blog post announcing the new app.
