Dubai / Emirates Business
As Deliveroo, the growing on-demand food delivery company, celebrates four years in business, it reveals new figures that demonstrate how the platform is helping restaurants in the UAE win new customers and generate more revenue.
With more than 800 restaurant partners in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, restaurant owners have reported a sustained growth in meal orders driven by Deliveroo that has allowed them to hire more staff and open new premises on the back of
Deliveroo partners with more than 800 restaurants in the UAE, from large chains such as Taqado Mexican Kitchen to small, independent outlets such as Joga. Orders grew by 650% worldwide in 2016, with the company adding new restaurants to the platform on a weekly basis and now delivering great food across the UAE.
Anis Harb, UAE General Manager at Deliveroo said: â€œAs Deliveroo celebrates its fourth anniversary since launching in London in 2013, I am confident that our dedication to providing the best food delivery experience in the world will allow us to continue to rapidly expand across Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Deliverooâ€™s partner restaurants can utilise their excess kitchen capacity to generate an increase of up to 30% in revenue without their own fleet of drivers and technology infrastructure, so our unique online delivery platform service is seen as a major asset to their business.â€
â€œIn just over a year, we have partnered with hundreds of restaurants in the UAE to change the local perception of what delivery can and should be,â€ Harb added. â€œWe are looking forward to bringing more of our citiesâ€™ great restaurant partners on board over the coming year, helping local chefs and entrepreneurs grow and expand their business.â€
Wojciech Orlowski, Cafe Bateelâ€™s Director of Operations said, â€œSince CafÃ© Bateelâ€™s priority is guest satisfaction, it took a lot of in-depth analysis in order to launch Deliverooâ€™s services. After nearly a year, Deliveroo is present in 12 locations. Iâ€™m looking forward to continuing the growth, and would love to
expand it further in GCC!â€
Tanya Azmi, Managing Partner of Fuchsia Urban Thai said, â€œWorking with Deliveroo has been great. Their team is super responsive and I love how they come up with quirky and fun marketing ideas, which work well with our brand personality. It feels like we just added to our Fuchsia family instead of working with an outside provider. Deliveroo also helps us reach new Fuchsia fans and provide them with an awesome delivery experience.â€
The new research comes as Deliveroo announced last month that 300 new highly skilled technology jobs were created in London and figures revealed the company grew 650% in 2016. The UK is home to Deliverooâ€™s global HQ and technology hub, and the new hires will help the company to continue to play a leading role in driving innovation in food delivery.
