Online/app-based food delivery is a growth market in the face of pressure on traditional quick-service restaurants. This has inspired both new start-ups and bigger brands with the logistics and online clout to explore such services, with competition springing up in major cities in markets such as the US, UK, and Europe.
Established by two American expats in London, Deliveroo has become one of the most successful start-up brands in the developing online/app-based food delivery market.
- Deliveroo has been a definitive player in disrupting the market by leveraging existing providers and providing the branded platform and delivery rider network to offer enhanced choice (including restaurants that previously had no delivery capability).
- Deliveroo has been instrumental in the development of the concept of “virtual kitchens” through its Deliveroo Editions project. Deliveroo Editions offers the capability of setting up a new kitchen operation within only 12 weeks without the baggage of a traditional restaurant setup.
- Deliveroo and others are largely dependent on the freelance riders who make their massive delivery fleets cost-effective. The demand for employee rights and better pay could change the financial opportunity in the marketplace.
