Deliveroo For Business Orders Jump
Deliveroo for Business, which was launched in March 2016, continues to go from strength to strength as it reports an increase of 181% in orders over the past 12 months. Deliveroo currently works with over 550 restaurants in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Belfast representing an increase of 54% in the past 12 months.
Deliveroo for Business operates in the same way as Deliveroo’s core model but instead of individual accounts, employees can order through a corporate account. It is a simple and secure way to cater for individual employees and meetings as well as corporate events.
The biggest sector that uses the Deliveroo for Business platform is technology, with tech companies accounting for over half (54%) of its business clients. These are followed by financial services, entertainment/ movie production and law firms. Some well-known Irish businesses that use Deliveroo for Business include Paddy Power, GoFundMe and Eventbrite.
Xavier Collins, Head of Deliveroo for Business UK & Ireland said: “Gone are the days when working long hours or staying late at the office meant sorry soggy sandwiches or a last minute dash to the supermarket. Deliveroo for Business allows companies to provide their workforce with real choice, restaurant quality food, delivered straight to their desks. With employees increasingly rating food as a top perk, Deliveroo can easily fuel your workplace with its corporate offering.”
Deliveroo also highlighted that Mexican cuisine is by far the most popular food ordered through the platform, followed by healthy salads and Japanese dishes. The company recently added new platter options and a set meal range from over 15 restaurants in Dublin, offering quick ordering for large groups, events or meetings. The most popular time for orders is lunchtime, between 12:00pm and 1pm, with a peak again at 8:00pm for those putting in some late hours.
