Death of the Lunchbox?

  • Data reveals Brits' evolving takeaway habits, with a 114% rise in lunchtime orders
  • Data is released as independent restaurant Cottonopolis becomes the 10,000th restaurant to partner with Deliveroo in the UK
  •  Restaurants are signing up exclusively to Deliveroo

Deliveroo has today released figures revealing new trends in takeaway orders, with a 114% rise in lunchtime orders, meaning more orders for restaurants and more work for Deliveroo riders.

The data has been released as Deliveroo reaches the significant milestone of its 10,000th restaurant partnership in the UK, with Cottonopolis. Located in the Northern Quarter in Manchester, Cottonopolis will work exclusively with the platform, offering Asian inspired food on demand.4

Dan Warne, UK & Ireland Managing Director at Deliveroo said: "It's great to welcome our 10,000th restaurant to Deliveroo and we look forward to helping yet another independent British business to grow and expand our winning formula of delivering the very best food from the very best restaurants at the very best price. It's why more and more restaurants are joining us exclusively and more and more customers are ordering their lunch with us. As the company grows we will ensure restaurants, riders and customers all benefit from our growth."

Dan Morris, Director at Cottonopolis said: "'We're excited by the opportunity this partnership will provide to reach even more diners across Manchester. Quality home delivery has become central to the dining habits of many across the city and we believe that our focused delivery menu will be a welcome addition and that Deliveroo are the perfect team to enable us to provide that service."

The majority the restaurants available on Deliveroo - including Cottonopolis, and 23 of the top 25 most popular restaurants on the platform – work exclusively with the food delivery service, including:

●      Five Guys: the popular American-inspired diner, expanding to 18 more towns and cities in the UK from May

●      Jamie's Pizzeria: Jamie's Italian will be introducing this exclusive pizza range exclusively to Deliveroo in over 25 locations. Each gourmet pizza will cost less than £10

●      Pho: The Vietnamese street food restaurant has recently left other platforms to become exclusive with Deliveroo

Stephen Wall, co-founder of Pho said: "Consumer dining behaviours have changed dramatically in the UK over the last few years, and working with Deliveroo has helped us to – quite literally – deliver the food our customers want to eat, in the comfort of their own home or office. As more and more people demand quality restaurant food to be delivered, we know that our exclusive partnership with Deliveroo will be beneficial as we grow the Pho brand."
