Menulog nabs exclusive deal to deliver Hungry Jack’s
Food delivery platform Menulog has struck an exclusive deal to deliver Hungry Jack’s burgers and other menu items to customers across the country.
Customers in 1604 suburbs across Australia can now order from more than 90 Hungry Jack’s restaurants and have items delivered to their doorstep.
The partnership with Menulog marks the first time that Hungry Jack’s has offered its food for delivery.
“Our partnership with Menulog recognises customer demand for delivery… we strive to work with the best suppliers and this extends to our delivery partners,” Adam Parkinson, Hungry Jack’s chief executive, said.
“With leading technology, compatible with our own advanced systems and more than 12 years’ experiences, Menulog is the right choice in delivery partner for our brand… we aim to make delivery a significant part of our business.”
The partnership allows Hungry Jack’s to reach Menulog’s customer base of more than three million Australians, and will supplement the brand’s existing ordering options through its app, including ‘skip the queue’ and ‘quick reorder’ functionality.
Menulog commercial director Rory Murphy said this partnership marks a change in Menulog’s offering of national brands, as it continues to expand its delivery service.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming more than 90 Hungry Jack’s restaurants to Menulog in the coming months and providing leading delivery solutions via our recently-launched Menulog Delivery Service,” Murphy said.
The partnership follows the recent announcement of Menulog adding KFC to its slew of brands, enabling delivery to more than 1850 suburbs across Australia from 180 KFC restaurants.
Deliveroo announces major expansion
Deliveroo also announced a significant expansion across the country with the plan to launch across 16 new zones in November, reaching an additional 1.5 million potential customers.
These new zones are spread across major cities such as Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, as well as adding riders to Hobart, Newcastle and Cairns for the first time.
“This expansion is an important milestone for Deliveroo in what has been a year of strong growth in the Australian market,” Deliveroo Australia country manager Levi Aron said.
Deliveroo aims to add approximately 500 new riders to the company’s fleet over the next six months to service these areas, with the potential to add up to 1,200.
