British Food delivery company Deliveroo is continuing its UK expansion, launching today in Carlisle. This means that locals can now order food from a range of restaurants, partnering with 30 eateries and takeaways by the end of the year.
Deliveroo is an app and website that enables Brits to check out the very best local food in their area, the British company has seen great success and is now available in 13 different countries. Deliveroo works with both the best independent restaurants like Fontanas and Romano Pizzeria and also well-known high street favourites like KFC and PizzaExpress (see Editor’s Notes below for full list of restaurants available on Deliveroo in Carlisle).
To celebrate the launch, Deliveroo is giving away hundreds of free doughnuts around the town centre this Saturday 30th November. The food delivery company is also giving customers 25% off orders when they pay with Visa for the next four weeks.*
The launch will be a major boost to small restaurant businesses across Carlisle who will be able to reach new customers and grow their restaurant businesses through offering delivery.
More than 50 jobs will be created for local people in Carlisle over the course of the first year, with the majority of these being Deliveroo riders, who aim to deliver food, which will be cooked, fresh to order and delivered from the restaurant kitchen to the customers’ door, desk or even the park in under 30 mins.
This comes as Deliveroo has announced nationwide expansion into a further 50 towns and cities in the UK this summer and autumn, opening in 10 new locations in July alone. The company will also be extending further into the suburbs in every existing city or town that it currently operates in.
The drive behind the rapid expansion is underpinned by the company’s belief that every part of the UK should have access to amazing meals wherever and whenever they want them.
The expansion is part of Deliveroo’s drive to reach an additional 6.5 million homes and be available to over half the population in the UK by the end of the year.
Harrison Foster, Regional Director in the UK, “Launching in Carlisle is a key milestone for Deliveroo. Carlisle has a thriving foodie community and a wide range of restaurants, so we’re excited to connect them. We look forward to working with our new restaurant partners to reach a new customer base and expand their businesses. Deliveroo will also create work for 50 local riders and are thrilled to offer a flexible role to the community.”
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 5pm and 11pm on weekdays and 11.30am and 11pm on weekends, from a variety of independent eateries, traditional takeaways and high-quality chain restaurants.
