Deliveroo expands service to Blackwood

British Food delivery company Deliveroo has announced its early launch in Blackwood this week. This means that locals can now order food from a range of restaurants and grocery retailers in the local area.

Deliveroo is an app and website that enables Brits to check out the very best local food in their area. The British company has seen great success and is now available in 12 different markets across the world. Deliveroo works with both the best independent restaurants like Brunchies Pengnam and Glitz & Glam Newport, well-known high street favourites like  KFC, Costa Coffee and Papa John’s, as well as grocery retailers and convenience stores such as Co-op and Morrisons (see Editor’s Notes below for full list available on Deliveroo in Blackwood).

The food delivery company will continue to add new local restaurants, takeaways and convenience stores to the platform over the coming months.

In celebration of the launch in Blackwood, Deliveroo is offering all new customers £10 off their first two orders using the code: NEWROOTOWN. This is an offer for new customers only, with a minimum spend of £15 per order.

The launch will be a major boost to small restaurant businesses across Blackwood who will be able to reach new customers and grow their restaurant businesses through offering delivery.

Working with Deliveroo increases restaurants’ sales as they can reach a wider range of customers. This enables restaurants to expand their businesses, often employing more staff, broadening their menus and lengthening opening times as a result.

Deliveroo will be looking for up to 50 people in Blackwood to become riders. Those who work as riders will be able to work when they want and where they want, delivering food and groceries to customers’ doors in as little as 20 minutes.

This comes as Deliveroo will also be extending further into the suburbs of existing cities or towns that it currently operates in. The drive behind the rapid expansion is underpinned by the company’s belief that people in every part of the UK should have access to amazing meals wherever and whenever they want them.

Berenice Cowan, Head of UK Expansion for Deliveroo said, “At last, we’ve arrived in Blackwood! We can’t wait to bring everyone great food from local and national favourites, and to help local chefs reach new customers. Hungry foodies, here we come!”
