Deliveroo launches Salford and Wilmslow, continuing Manchester rollout
Deliveroo, the on-demand delivery service for high-quality restaurant meals, today announces its launch in MediaCityUK and Wilmslow, following a hugely successful launch in central Manchester.
Deliveroo has seen its hyper-local approach to food delivery service thrive in areas with high population density and quality restaurants, making Salford and Wilmslow ideal new zones for the service.
The launch means the hungry residents of MediaCityUK and Wilmslow can now get food from lots of great quality local restaurants (such as Wagamama, Cau, Penelope’s and Pokusevski’s) delivered to their door in 30 minutes for a £2.50 extra delivery fee. To order, all they need to do is type their postcode into Deliveroo’s website, or download the iPhone app (Android released shortly!)
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 32 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.
Caroline Hazlehurst, General Manager of Deliveroo, said: “We’ve seen a big appetite for Deliveroo in Manchester so far – we’re excited to be working with even more great restaurants in the area, and to be serving the hungry people of Salford and Wilmslow. Busy consumers will now be able to enjoy high-quality meals at home or in the office, delivered consistently and quickly, whether it’s burgers, salad, burritos, or sushi.”
Deliveroo has already seen impressive growth in the UK. The service has had a 25% month-on-month growth since inception, while daily orders have grown tenfold since January 2015.
Hazlehurst continues: “Expanding our operation in Manchester is a natural next step in our mission to offer the highest quality food delivery service in the UK. In the 32 towns and cities we currently operate in, we have an enthusiastic base of repeat customers, and we’re looking forward to meeting new food lovers in Salford and Wilmslow.”
