Deliveroo is celebrating its second birthday in Cardiff. New data reveals Saturday is the most popular day for Cardiff locals to order Deliveroo. Further data has shown locals love to enjoy American food the most, followed by Italian and Mexican cuisine.

Since its launch in the city two years ago, more than 150 restaurants have signed up to Deliveroo. Work for more than 200 people has been created for locals, 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 Cardiff businesses, with 75 percent of its restaurant partners being independent restaurants, creating new revenue streams for homegrown culinary talent. In 2016 Deliveroo created £200m in additional revenue for the restaurant industry in the UK.

Caroline Hazlehurst, General Manager at Deliveroo, said: "After two years of delivering hundreds of thousands of meals across Cardiff, we've learnt a thing or two about what locals like to eat! American cuisine reigns supreme throughout Cardiff with burgers being one of the most popular dishes on the platform.

"We're proud to support so many of the very best local restaurants in the city alongside national favourites too. It's been truly amazing to hear stories about how local businesses have been able to expand their operations to other cities because of the additional revenue Deliveroo is generating for them.

"We will continue to provide the best service possible for our Cardiff customers, riders and restaurant partners as we grow."

Restaurant Manager at Magic Wrap, said: "Since we partnered with Deliveroo almost 2 years ago, we've been able to get our delicious wraps delivered to our customers in an easy and efficient way from our 3 sites in Cardiff.

"Deliveroo opened up the delivery market to us which was difficult to achieve before. We operate with Deliveroo with confidence that our product gets to our customer in the great condition we make it in store - this is reflected in our ever growing business with Deliveroo."
