Deliveroo has created work for more than 130 people in Belfast, with the majority of these being the Deliveroo riders who deliver your food which is cooked fresh to order and delivered to your door within 30 minutes. Since its launch two years ago, more than 110 restaurants have signed up to the Deliveroo platform.
While these include some of the UK’s favourite restaurant chains like Five Guys and Wagamama, Deliveroo also supports Belfast’s local foodie scene – over 75% of its restaurant partners are independent. In 2017, a report by Capital Economics found that Deliveroo will create a further 7,200 jobs in the UK restaurant sector and contribute as much as £1.5bn to the UK economy by 2019.
Dan Warne, Managing Director of Deliveroo in UK and Ireland, said: “Our whole team here at Deliveroo is delighted that our rapid growth in Belfast over the past two years means that customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue, and riders have opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work. Recently, we’ve noticed that more and more customers are taking advantage of our great breakfast service, which has seen orders increase fivefold compared to last year.”
Operations Manger’s Thoughts
Operations Manager at Cafe Fish said: “Working with Deliveroo has been great; they really take the pressure off deliveries at our end and leave us to do what is important, cook the food! Since we joined Deliveroo we have seen our output go up considerably as we have been able to reach consumers we could not reach before.”
Deliveroo is focused on providing the ultimate food-delivery experience. Customers have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance, or receive food as soon as possible between 12 noon and 11pm, and from 9am on weekends, where at the click of a button, their order will be delivered straight to their door in under 30 minutes. In February 2018, Deliveroo also launched its £7.99 a month subscription service, Deliveroo Plus, enabling Belfast’s food lovers to get unlimited free delivery whilst providing them with new discounts every month.
