You know you can’t go too wrong when your food delivery service has the logo of a cute kangaroo and your deliveryman/woman is referred to as a rooman/woman. Aside from this great branding, British company Deliveroo hops around to give you the best food from the best restaurants on their website and their app. More recently, Deliveroo has come up with Delivery Editions – kitchens housing restaurants that are delivery only. This allowed these restaurants to expand their delivery area and serve more customers more efficiently. Plus, there are plans to add the option to dine in at the Delivery Editions branches as well.
Moreover, the real beauty of Deliveroo is that there is no minimum order for delivery! For orders over $25, the delivery fee is only $3, regardless of how much food you order!
