Four years ago Deliveroo started with one rider in one city and a handful of restaurant partners. We now work with over 30,000 riders worldwide, bringing food to hundreds of thousands of customers from over 20,000 restaurants. We now deliver in over 100 towns and cities across the UK and we're committed to ensuring that as we grow riders continue to benefit from that growth.
We grew over 650% in 2016 - which is a lot of deliveries. To put that into context check out some of the key delivery facts from 2016 below....
Enough burgers were ordered to cover the distance of 6.3 marathons if placed side by side.
Deliveroo riders in the UK and Ireland rode the equivalent distance of 500 times around the world – that’s 25 round trips to the moon!
There were enough pizzas ordered to cover 7 whole football pitches!
We delivered 1 million litres of soft drinks, that’s enough to fill 16 lorries.
