Deliveroo has announced that it is introducing new measures to support local restaurants as they reopen for business as part of a new campaign called "Love Your Local".
The first measure that Deliveroo is putting in place is a new restaurant tipping feature that enables customers to tip restaurants on the app when they place an order. When customers are paying at "checkout", they will be able to round their bill up or tip the restaurant from a selection of predetermined amounts.
All the tips will go directly to the selected restaurant.
Deliveroo CEO Will Shu stated, "Deliveroo wants to play a significant role in helping the growth of local independent restaurants during COVID-19. That is why we are proud to launch a new campaign - 'Love Your Local' - to encourage customers to order from and support their local restaurants in their neighbourhoods. Independent restaurants are at the heart of so many communities, and they're at the heart of Deliveroo. We are constantly looking for new ways to support their success and make sure more people can order their amazing meals."
