Deliveroo Pilots Expansion of Late Night Service in Dublin

Deliveroo is piloting the expansion of late night service in Dublin.

Details

Deliveroo stated, "Leading food-delivery company, Deliveroo, is responding to an increase in demand for late night food orders by piloting the expansion of late night delivery at weekends from more popular restaurants in Dublin. This means night owls can now have food delivered to their door via Deliveroo riders until as late as 4am. According to Deliveroo data, late night ordering has grown on average 140% between 2020 and 2021 with Friday night seeing the biggest growth in late night food orders for Dublin customers, followed by Saturday in second place, and Thursday coming in third.

"The late night service will now be available from some of Dublin's best late night restaurants including Yeeros, 4Friends Burger, Supermacs, Papa John’s and Abrakebabra.

"Paddy Quinlan, Regional Manager at Deliveroo, said, 'People have changed how they order online and not least when it comes to food. We are very pleased with the level of growth we are experiencing when it comes to late night snacking in Ireland.  At the moment we are trialling the service in Dublin, but we hope to roll this out across Ireland in the areas in which we operate, if the trend continues.'

"George Stamopoulos, Owner of Yeeros, said, 'We are very pleased to be able to bring our delicious gyros to our customers after hours and the opportunity for people to enjoy a night in, and still experience their late night favourite food is great!'

"Deliveroo launched in Ireland in 2015, and currently works with more than 1,000 self-employed riders and more than 1,800 restaurants across Cork, Dublin, Kildare, Galway, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Waterford, and Wicklow."

Deliveroo Joins Forces With Vogue Williams for Dublin Simon Community Partnership

Additonally, Deliveroo has joined forced with Vogue Williams for a Dublin Simon Community Partnership.

Deliveroo said in a separate statement, "Deliveroo has teamed up with Dublin Simon Community and Vogue Williams to launch its 'Full Life' campaign in Ireland this week. Through Full Life, Deliveroo is committing to work with its network of customers, restaurants, grocers and riders to play an active role in Irish neighbourhoods - and help provide good food to communities most in need.

"With 70% of people who are homeless in Ireland located in Dublin [according to the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage June 2021 homeless report], Deliveroo and its partner restaurants have pledged to donate over 1,000 hot meals to Dublin Simon Community throughout the month of December. In the run up to Christmas restaurants on the food delivery platform including Boojum, Zambrero, India Today, and Reyna will prepare a selection of hot meals, free of charge, that Deliveroo will distribute to 19 of Dublin Simon Community's Services located across the city.  The free meals will be delivered by Deliveroo for Work, the corporate arm of Deliveroo, which can deliver large numbers of meals in its vans.

"Deliveroo customers in Dublin will be able to donate to Dublin Simon Community through an in-app fundraiser. When ordering food from the app, users will be able to add a donation to their bill, or simply round up their bill to donate directly to Dublin Simon Community to show their support and appreciation for the incredible work the charity does to support people who are homeless.

"Vogue Williams, Irish TV Presenter and Dublin native, has worked with both Dublin Simon Community and Deliveroo in the past and couldn’t wait to lend her support to the campaign.

"Commenting on the partnership, Vogue Williams said, 'Growing up in Dublin, I have seen first-hand the incredible work Dublin Simon Community does all year round, but especially at Christmas time. I am proud to work alongside such a great charity to raise awareness of how donations can be made to homeless people, through the Deliveroo app. Knowing that this will help Dublin Simon Community to continue to provide services to almost 8,000 homeless people each year is really important to me.'

"James Phelan, Community and Fundraising Manager at Dublin Simon Community, said, 'Dublin Simon Community is proud to be the first Irish charity to benefit from Deliveroo’s ‘Full Life’ campaign. We are grateful to Deliveroo's restaurant partners for providing free, comforting meals for our service users. We’re also excited that Deliveroo customers get the opportunity to donate to our charity in a new and exciting way through the in-app fundraiser!'

"Paddy Quinlan, Growth Manager and spokesperson for Deliveroo Ireland, said, 'Not only do we know good food, but we know good causes. Full Life is about using Deliveroo's network and prominent position in Irish society to bolster charities and organisations already doing great work, such as Dublin Simon Community. We are in awe of the work they do and excited to support them this festive season.'

"Paul McCullagh, Marketing Manager at Boojum, said, 'We are delighted to be partnering with Deliveroo to provide meals to Dublin Simon Community. We have seen the amazing work the organisation does in Dublin and jumped at the chance to help!'
