Fast food delivery firm set to bring 20 new jobs
ITS cyclists carrying big turquoise backpacks are a common sight in town and cities across the UK.
And now fast food delivery firm Deliveroo has launched in Rochdale.
By the end of the year food from 30 takeaways and restaurants in the borough will be available for home delivery through Deliveroo’s app and website.
Eateries to have linked up with the firm include Whitworth Chinese Takeaway, Cakes ‘n’ Shakes and Los Pepe’s and also chains such as KFC, and Frankie & Benny’s.
More than 20 jobs will be created for local people in Rochdale over the course of the first year.
The majority of these jobs will be Deliveroo riders.
Dan Warne, managing director of Deliveroo in UK and Ireland, said: “Launching in Rochdale is a key milestone for Deliveroo. Rochdale has a thriving foodie community and a wide range of restaurants, so we’re excited to connect them.
“We look forward to working with our new restaurant partners to reach a new customer base and expand their businesses.
“Deliveroo will also create work for 20 local riders and are thrilled to offer a flexible role to the community.”
