Deliveroo Launches New Platform to Enable Restaurants to Reach New Audiences
Deliveroo has launched Deliveroo Editions, a revolutionary platform that will enable hundreds of restaurants to reach new customers in cities around the world, without needing a high street premise. Customers across the world will gain access to over 300 leading restaurants as Deliveroo Editions brings chefs and restaurateurs to new locations in cities across the world.
Deliveroo Editions gives restaurateurs the chance to launch, expand and test new innovations with delivery-only offerings and are the result of extensive market analysis drawing on the unique data available to Deliveroo.
Using its own technology, Deliveroo can identify specific local cuisines missing in an area, identify customer demand for that missing cuisine and hand-pick restaurant brands that are most likely to appeal to customers in that area.
The roll-out will see Deliveroo provide restaurant partners with the infrastructure – including bespoke kitchens, local marketing support and fleets of riders – that allows them to launch delivery-only menus catered to local tastes.
Deliveroo Editions will also mean customers who want access to food from restaurants that have yet to open in their town or city will be able to access their menus to enjoy at home – cooked by chefs employed and trained by the restaurants themselves.
Will Shu, CEO of Deliveroo, says: “Deliveroo Editions makes good on our promise to widen access to the world’s best food. By partnering with some of the top restaurants in the business – from unique independents to high-street favourites – we’re ensuring people have access to incredible food on demand. By drawing on the unique technology that motors Deliveroo, we are able to identify gaps in the market and curate bespoke restaurant selections, meaning more choice for customers and the chance for our partners to scale. This is the biggest development in the market since Deliveroo first launched.”
The international roll-out comes after successful London trials with leading restaurants such as Franco Manca, On The Bab and Motu Indian Kitchen, a unique collaboration with Michelin-starred restaurateur Karam Sethi. The trial resulted in thousands more deliveries for local riders as well as work for over 100 full-time restaurant employees.
Deliveroo works with over 20,000 restaurants, as well as over 30,000 riders to provide its food delivery service. Deliveroo is headquartered in London, with more than 1,000 employees in offices around the globe. Deliveroo operates in over 140 cities across 12 countries, including Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
