The business was launched in 2013 by Deliveroo’s founder and CEO Will Shu who initially worked as the very first rider. Eight years on, Deliveroo operates in over 200 cities and towns across the UK, working with 50,000 restaurant partners, major grocery partners and more than 50,000 self-employed riders. With thousands of choices and a fleet of own delivery riders, every order can be delivered in as little as 30 minutes.
The delivery fee is variable, based on the location. Some restaurants use their own delivery drivers. In that case, the restaurant sets its own delivery fee. Also an extra fee will be added whenever the restaurant's minimum is not met.
Every order can be delivered in as little as 30 minutes. Once the restaurant receives your order, they’ll get to work preparing your food and then carefully package it. Once it's all ready to go, a Deliveroo rider will pick it up and bring it to you. If you want to be super-organised, you can also order up to 24 hours in advance with a scheduled delivery.
