Deliveroo bounces into Brisbane
Restaurant delivery service, Deliveroo, has expanded to Brisbane, opening its third Australian office in six months.
Deliveroo will initially be available in Brisbane’s CBD, Fortitude Valley, New Farm, Teneriffe and Spring Hill, with plans to extend across Brisbane and surrounding areas within months. At launch, the company has 50 restaurant partners on board, including notable Brisbane restaurants Jamie’s Italian, Kwan Brothers, Buffalo Bar, Flying Cock, La Macelleria, and The Smoke.
“After successfully launching Deliveroo in Melbourne and Sydney, we are ready to expand our network further with our launch in Brisbane this month, ” said Levi Aron, country manager, Deliveroo.
Deliveroo launched in Australia in November 2015 following a D round capital raise of A$140 million.
Aron said the company has delivered consistent 30 per cent week-on-week growth across both Sydney and Melbourne, increasing its restaurant portfolio from 80 to over 600 in just six months, with notable restaurant partners including Toko, Jamie’s Italian, Entrecôte, Le Bon Ton, Mary’s Burgers and Guzman y Gomez. The company has also doubled its staff across operations and customer service, ensuring there is a strong local team on the ground in each new market it enters.
Deliveroo currently operates in 14 countries and 65 cities around the world, with 10,000 active restaurants and 5,000 drivers worldwide. The company is growing 25 per cent week-on-week internationally.
