Deliveroo launches in Harrogate as North East expansion continues
Deliveroo, the on-demand delivery service for high-quality restaurant meals, announces its launch in Harrogate, hot on the heels of hugely successful launches in York, Newcastle, and Durham.
Launched in 2013, Deliveroo is focused on providing the ultimate food delivery experience. Customers are able to order meals from a variety of leading local, independent and high-quality chain restaurants, conveniently delivered to their homes and offices in an average of 30 minutes. Restaurants can take advantage of Deliveroo’s proprietary end-to-end technology and logistics platform to offer delivery for the first time without the hassle of running their own fleet of drivers.
Deliveroo has seen its hyper-local approach to food delivery service thrive in areas with high population density and quality restaurants, making Harrogate an ideal new market for the service.
The launch means the hungry residents of Harrogate can now get food from some of their favourite restaurants, including Wagamama, Major Tom’s Social, Boss Burgers and The Yorkshire Meatball Co., delivered to their door in 30 minutes for a £2.50 delivery fee. To order, all they need to do is type their postcode into Deliveroo’s website or iPhone app.
Caroline Hazlehurst, General Manager of Deliveroo, said: “Harrogate has a thriving food culture, yet busy consumers are missing the opportunity to have good food delivered from the best restaurants to their homes and offices. With the launch of Deliveroo, they will be able to enjoy quality food delivered quickly and consistently, whether it’s burgers, healthy juices or pizza.”
This expansion will create jobs for over 70 drivers in Harrogate over the next year, and will bring significant increased revenues to partner restaurants - for example, many York and Newcastle partner restaurants have reported an increase of up to 30% in revenues.
Hazlehurst continues: “This expansion in the North East is a significant step in our plan to become the best food delivery company in the UK. We’ve quickly established an enthusiastic base of repeat customers in our 33 towns and cities of operation in the UK, and we intend to and look forward to doing the same in Harrogate.”
