Deliveroo has announced the latest UK-wide expansion of its Editions kitchens with the opening of new sites across London – in Acton, Brent and Dulwich.
The new delivery-only kitchens form part of Deliveroo’s plan to grow its Editions service and roll out more sites across the country, and follows the successful opening of sites in London and Bristol earlier this year.
After pioneering the creation of delivery-only kitchens in 2016, Deliveroo now has Editions sites across the UK, including Manchester, Leeds and Brighton.
Deliveroo says its Editions kitchens are playing a vital role in helping restaurants recover from the pandemic by enabling them to reach new customers, without having to pay for and set up a physical premises.
The delivery-only kitchens also create additional job opportunities for chefs and catering staff, with the new UK openings creating more than 1,000 jobs this year.
The new sites in Acton, Brent Cross and Dulwich will each host a range of independent and family-favourite restaurants, bringing a wide variety of cuisine choices, all exclusively on Deliveroo and delivered in under 30 minutes.
Restaurant partners include Five Guys, Dishoom, Shake Shack, Pho, Rosa’s Thai, Tao Tao Ju,Bleecker, Chilango, Tortilla and Pasta Evangelists.
Rory Scallan, head of commercial for Five Guys, said: “We’re delighted to be opening Five Guys in the Deliveroo Editions kitchens. They have given us the opportunity to deliver our delicious burgers, fries and shakes to new customers, in new areas.
“Our delivery sales and partnership with Deliveroo has grown throughout the pandemic and we’re excited to see how the Editions kitchens can further strengthen this”.
Will Shu, the CEO and Founder of Deliveroo, said: “We are really excited to expand our Editions kitchens and bring amazing cuisines to even more consumers across the country. Our delivery-only Editions kitchens have been a gamechanger for the food delivery industry, and will continue to play a vital role in helping restaurants recover from the pandemic and drive growth.”
