Uber Eats seems to be focused more on scale than profit, analysts said.

Uber UBER, -2.44% is launching faster food.

The ride-hailing giant announced plans to start testing the first-ever food delivery via drone and will roll out the service this summer for a price comparable to what diners pay for Uber Eats, Bloomberg reported.

Uber Elevate, in partnership with Uber Eats, began testing in San Diego on Wednesday with McDonald’s MCD, +0.22% Big Macs and chicken McNuggets. The company says it may also start delivering from fine-dining restaurants this summer.

The drone delivery service will allow a restaurant worker to load the meal into a drone, which will then take flight and then land in a designated safe landing zone.
