A London-borne sushi operator built on the support and infrastructure of Deliveroo has successfully launched its business internationally.
Yoobi Sushi is powered by Deliveroo Editions, the network of delivery-only super kitchens, and has won a legion of admirers in the London area.
It has now taken up residence in France, where it is serving Parisians its version of Brazilian-inspired sushi.
Deliveroo revealed that Yoobi Sushi is the first British restaurant launching internationally as it reflected on its sixth year of trading in the UK.
It is now working with 20,000 takeaways and restaurants and is set to launch in an additional eight UK towns over the next month, with 40 more locations planned by the end of the year.
It is also set to launch ‘click and collect’, which will give customers the option to order food from thousands of restaurants for collection on its platform. Deliveroo wants consumers to have options for every occasion, which it claims this new feature will help to achieve.
Deliveroo says that restaurants and takeaways which work with it can increase their revenue by up to 30%. Notable recent additions to Deliveroo’s marketplace include British burger chain Lucky Chip and London’s famous Isabel restaurant.
Will Shu, Deliveroo’s CEO and first ever rider, said: “Six years ago I never thought we’d get the chance to work with the likes of Greggs or Pizza Express. Now we’re in 14 countries across the globe, boast one of Britain’s biggest tech teams and are supporting some of the UK’s best takeaways and restaurants.”
