As food delivery hopefuls like Deliveroo and Amazon get more involved in the making of food themselves, Uber’s food delivery branch Uber Eats has made an acquisition that could see the company also producing more of the product it’s bringing to its customers. Ando — the delivery-only ‘restaurant’ founded by Momofuku chef David Chang — announced today that it has been acquired by Uber Eats.

The move comes at a time of growth for Uber in the food delivery category. “We’ll be the largest food delivery company in the world this year,” Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said today at DLD in Munich. 

According to the notice on Ando’s homepage, the company is shutting down its service — live only in New York — effective immediately as it begins to integrate with Uber Eats.
