Deliveroo announced on 15 November that it is continuing its expansion in Ireland by launching in counties Louth, Kildare and Meath.
This move sees the continuation of Deliveroo’s expansion throughout Ireland in 2021, with the food delivery service already providing food delivery in Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford and Wicklow.
Paddy Quinlan, growth manager for Deliveroo Ireland, commented, “Deliveroo’s expansion across the east is illustrative of its commitment to the Irish market."
Deliveroo, which launched in Ireland in 2015, works with more than 1,000 self-employed riders and over 1,800 restaurants across these cities.
"In addition to creating valuable opportunities for riders, our sustained growth in Ireland will be a boost to local restaurants which will be able to reach new customers and grow their businesses through food delivery,” Quinlan added.
Deliveroo said that this latest growth into Drogheda, Dundalk, Naas, Newbridge, and Navan will open new work opportunities for people in the local community who want the freedom to choose when, where and how to work.
The food delivery company noted that locals will now be able to enjoy popular restaurants such as KFC, Camile Thai, Burger King and Subway delivered to their doors in as little as 30 minutes.
Deliveroo said that it helped many restaurants implement new delivery services to stay afloat when doors were closed to the public at the onset of the pandemic.
By signing up with Deliveroo, restaurants and retailers can 'grow their business by widening their customer base and increasing sales,' it added.
