Award-winning delivery service Deliveroo has grown by 40 per cent in High Wycombe between August and September – and demand is continuing to increase.

The service – which launched in the town in April – is now looking for new riders to join the company in a bid to meet growing demand.

The popular online service aims to deliver restaurant meals to your door within 30 minutes and between the months of August and September, orders in High Wycombe saw a spike.

The company is now also working with 16 restaurants in the town – a 23 per cent increase in a month - including G’rillers, ASK Italian, Treatz, Eat Thai and YO! Sushi.

Restaurants who use Deliveroo have also seen their revenue boosted by up to 30 per cent, according to figures released by the company.

Dan Warne, UK managing director at Deliveroo said: “Everyone here at Deliveroo is delighted that our fast growth in High Wycombe means customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue and riders have opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work.

“Deliveroo’s fundraising will mean greater growth and new innovations. More restaurants will be able to deliver their food direct to people’s homes or offices and there will be more work available for people who want to be riders and fit their work around their life rather than trying to fit life around their work.

“Now, right across High Wycombe we are looking for more riders to join us as we grow, so we can deliver even more amazing food to our brilliant customers.”

Amid the growth – which is continuing to rise into November, Deliveroo is now looking for more riders to join the company in High Wycombe.

On average across the UK, riders earn £9.50 per hour and if a current rider successfully refers someone new to join the company, they will receive up to £250.

The company’s world-leading technology sorts hundreds of thousands of orders through its algorithm, ‘Frank’, which is based on powerful predictive technology that is able to evaluate the most efficient way of distributing orders based on the location of restaurants, riders and customers.

Alongside other refinements to Deliveroo’s technology and operations, the algorithm has already helped reduce average delivery time for meals by nearly 20 per cent since coming online in January.

The service was created in 2013 by William Shu and Greg Orlowski and has expanded across the world since then, working with more than 30,000 restaurants in more than 150 cities.

Deliveroo has just secured $385 million in new investment - one of the single largest foreign investments into the UK in recent years.

It values the company at over $2 billion - further establishing the company as one of the country’s biggest tech success stories.
