Hong Kong-based hotel chain Darden Restaurants has partnered with Uber and the ride-sharing company Airbnb to help its hotel customers with food, drink and shopping.

The partnership comes amid concerns that Chinese authorities are looking to clamp down on foreign ownership in the hotel industry.

Darden Restaurant CEO Chris Leung told the Financial Times that the partnership with Airbnb is meant to improve the service of its restaurants.

“We are in the process of working with the hotel operators to help them provide the best service,” Leung said.

“It’s a collaboration between Airbnb and Darden to provide a more efficient service.”

Darden has over 1,000 restaurants in Hong Kong and has a total of more than 2.2 million rooms.
