Since its launch in the city two years ago, more than 40 restaurants have signed up to the platform. Over the past 12 months the number of riders making deliveries with the company in Galway has increased to 50. This increase is because Deliveroo offers well-paid, flexible work that people want as it allows people to combine work with other responsibilities, for example studying.
On average across Galway, riders earn €10 per hour. Deliveroo is looking for more riders in Galway, current riders who successfully refer someone new to Deliveroo in Galway will receive up to €250.
Deliveroo supports local Galway businesses, with 80 percent of its restaurant partners being local independent restaurants, creating new revenue streams for homegrown culinary talent. In 2016 Deliveroo created £200m in additional revenue for the restaurant industry in the UK.
Dan Warne, UK & Ireland Managing Director, Deliveroo said: “After two years of delivering thousands of meals in the city, we’ve learnt a thing or two about what locals like to eat. Our rapid growth in Galway is great for foodies and families as it means customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue and riders have opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work.
“We’re proud to support so many of the very best local restaurants alongside national favourites too. It’s been truly amazing to hear stories about how local restaurants have been able to grow their businesses because of the additional revenue Deliveroo is generating for them.“
Deliveroo is focused on providing the ultimate food delivery experience. 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, and from 9am on the weekends, from a variety of leading local, independent and best-loved chain restaurants, conveniently delivered to their homes and offices.
