Schwan’s
Schwan’s Company, formerly known as The Schwan Food Company, is a subsidiary of CJ CheilJedang with approximately 12,000 employees.

The Schwan’s family maintains 100 percent ownership in Schwan’s Home Service, which represents the company’s legacy home-delivery business launched by Marvin Schwan in 1952. Schwan’s Home Service continues to operate as a privately held, independent company.

Based in Marshall, Minnesota, the company sells frozen foods from home delivery trucks, in grocery store freezers, by mail, and to the food service industry.

Wikipedia: Uber Eats
Uber Eats is an online food ordering and delivery platform launched by Uber in 2014. Users can read menus, reviews and ratings, order, and pay for food from participating restaurants using an application on the iOS or Android platforms, or through a web browser.
