REDDING, Calif - Tuesday morning, Uber Eats expanded its services to Redding, Chico and Visalia making it the third mobile app delivery service in Redding in just a few weeks.

Door dash was the first with Uber Eats and Entrée Express joining shortly after.

Some people in the area think it's a great move. 

"I just think its great if it's going to help businesses and service and adding to the business community in Redding then its good news," said Redding resident Andy Mason.

But we wanted to know how this could affect local restaurants, specifically servers. 

A Cheesecake Unlimited employee told Action News Now, take out is already a big portion of their orders.

The restaurant has been using Entrée Express for years but adds the mobile app could actually help productivity.

"I'd say at least half of our workload throughout the day goes to the bartender and getting food to drivers so I'd say yeah actually a big benefit for our business," said server Mason Datton. 

When it comes to tips he isn't worried.

"As far as gratuity goes it comes in all shapes and sizes you never know what you're going to get but at the same time, we have our days we aren't trying to share ourselves whether we are having a bad day or not," Datton said. "I think it kind of benefits all of us to take a day off when you don't want to be in the public eye." 

And even though people are excited about these new apps some say it won't take away from the experience of going out to eat.

"I wish the best for everybody I still encourage anybody that feels like getting dined to come by and still experience the old-fashioned art of service industry," Datton said.
