Deliveroo has today announced a significant jump in week-on-week new restaurant growth. More than 100 Irish restaurant partners signed up to the platform in just a two-week period, representing an 80% increase on previous weeks.
To manage this increased demand, Deliveroo has re-assigned teams of people across the business to onboard new restaurant partners and support restaurants who want to carry out deliveries but have no previous experience. Recognising the challenges faced by restaurants during this period, the company has also dropped its new-restaurant onboarding fee.
Some well-known Irish brands that have joined Deliveroo are:
Elephant & Castle
Xian Street Food
Speaking this week, Deliveroo Ireland General Manager, Michael Healy said, "We are here to deliver for restaurants that want to carry on offering their amazing food to families at home during this difficult time. We are working with restaurants to optimise their operations for delivery, and we are doing everything we can to make sure people still have access to the food they want and need."
