Since its launch in the town two years ago, more than 50 restaurants have signed up to the platform. Deliveroo has created work for more than 45 people, 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.

Deliveroo supports local businesses in Northampton, with 60% percent of its restaurant partners being local independent restaurants, creating new revenue streams for homegrown culinary talent. In 2017, a report by Capital Economics found that Deliveroo will create a further 7,200 jobs in the 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 are delighted that our rapid growth in Northampton over the past two years means that customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue, and riders have the opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work.”

Sunny Kooner, The Restaurant Manager at Lighthouse and The Department of Meat and Social Affairs 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.”

Local MP Andrew Lewer said:

‘Supporting our local businesses in Northampton is a priority for me and Deliveroo plays a key role in helping restaurants, particularly independents, grow their client base and bring more food choice to my constituents, as well as creating work for local people’. 

Deliveroo is focused on providing the ultimate food delivery experience.
