Will Shu found it almost impossible to order great food while he was living in the UK a few years ago, so he came up with a solution where customers could order food from any of their favourite restaurants at the quick tap of a few buttons. Sound familiar? To no surprise, this disruptive behaviour didn’t stop once Deliveroo was created.
Innovation is at the core of Deliveroo, which means we are constantly searching for new ways to enhance the food market so we can give our customers absolute ‘food freedom’.
We wanted to go further than just making sure restaurants are available when and where you want them – we wanted to bring new restaurants to customers’ areas so they could have even more choice of amazing food. To do this, Deliveroo created ‘Deliveroo Editions’.
Deliveroo Editions helps restaurants expand to new areas. Editions identifies the types of foods that customers want, and then works with restaurants that specialise in creating these cuisines.
We help restaurants to set up kitchens in new areas within just 8-12 weeks, without the upfront costs of a high-street premise. Deliveroo provides Editions restaurants with data insights so that they know which cuisines will be popular in specific local areas – meaning restaurants grow faster and customers have a greater choice of food.
How does it work?
Each Editions site is equipped with approximately 4 – 12 fully-functioning kitchens that restaurants can occupy. This model works really well for restaurants (or food trucks) that are looking to open up a new location at a low cost or experiment with their menu – they simply pay a small commission on orders, stock up with their ingredients, and send a few chefs to the Editions site to prepare the food.
Bringing these restaurants to Editions also ensures we can provide customers with a diverse and exciting selection of brands that would otherwise be out of reach. Customers order dishes from the restaurant through the app, and restaurants receive orders through a tablet. Riders then come to the Editions site to pick up the order and deliver it the same way they usually would.
