Yandex Eats was first announced in 2018, and has been rolled out to 24 cities across Russia, offering foods from more than 6,500 restaurants.

Maxim Firsov, the CEO of Yandex.Eats, quoted in 2008 that:

Yandex.Eats has expanded quickly since its launch, more than tripling its restaurants, adding over 20 new cities, and now receiving eight times as many orders.  One of the key features of Yandex.Eats is the delivery speed, which is critical for customers.  Our team optimizes delivery times by using Yandex’s machine learning, maps and data analysis technologies.  The Yandex.Eats platform integrates our logistics optimization algorithms and the best routing tools in Russia to predict demand and calculate optimal routes for our delivery teams.
