Deliveroo has seen the number of orders from customers in Cork increase by three and a half times (250%) since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020.
Over the last two years, burritos have secured the top spot as the most popular dish in Corkonian households, closely followed by piri-piri chicken and pad Thai. Popular eateries for dining at home include Soba, the Asian street food restaurant, with branches in Blackpool and Carey’s Lane; Umi Falafel, which delivers Middle Eastern fare from Academy Street; and Roosters Piri Piri, which specialises in chicken dishes and is based in Blackpool and Douglas.
More than 80 new restaurants in Cork have joined Deliveroo since March 2020, with new partners including the likes of Burnt Pizza, Man Friday Deli and Black Market Burger joining the platform.
To facilitate the growth of the business in Ireland, Deliveroo recently opened a new office in North Dock, in Dublin, with the team focusing on business development across Ireland. This is in addition to the more than 3,000 self-employed riders across the country with whom Deliveroo continues to work.
