The number of restaurants on the Deliveroo platform in Ireland increased by 50% during the first six months of 2020 as more restaurants focussed on deliveries due to COVID-19-related closures.

Deliveroo now has over 1,800 Irish restaurant partners, and is currently on track to meet a 2,000 restaurant partner target that it set for itself in early 2020.
