More than 30 jobs will be created for local people in Southend over the course of the first year, with the majority of these being Deliveroo riders, who aim to deliver food, which will be cooked, fresh to order and delivered from the restaurant kitchen to the customers’ door within 30 minutes.
More than 15 restaurants have signed up to the service, meaning people can now get their favourite food from their most loved local restaurants including PizzaExpress, Mangetout, ASK Italian and Pasta Pia.
Jeremy Rawlinson, General Manager at Deliveroo, said: “We’re extremely excited to be launching in Southend and we’re looking forward to bringing some of the town’s delicious dishes straight from the hands of local chefs to customers’ doors.
“Our new riders in Southend are now kitted out in their new hyper-reflective kit and locals can order from the fantastic variety of restaurants in Southend, whatever they want, whenever they want, all from the comfort of their own home, office desk or wherever else hunger strikes.
“We already have a number of great partners across the town and we are excited to expand and widen the variety of restaurants on offer to our customers in Southend over the course of the next year.”
Deliveroo customers have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible between 12 noon and 11pm, from a variety of leading local, independent and high-quality chain restaurants, conveniently delivered to their homes and offices in an average of 30 minutes.
