Food delivery company Deliveroo launched in Wisbech this week offering locals the chance to order food from a range of restaurants and retailers in the town.

Last month the company announced plans to come to the town with an appeal for delivery riders and drivers, stating they were hoping to launch in Wisbech within a couple of months.

Deliveroo is an app and website that enable people to check out the very best local food in their area. The British company has seen great success and is now available in 12 different markets across the world.

Deliveroo is working with both the best independent restaurants like Bygones,King Kebab & Pizzas, The Elm Tree Inn and Tony's Fish Kebab, as well as well-known high street favourites like KFC in Wisbech.

The food delivery company will continue to add new local restaurants, takeaways and grocery partners, with the likes of Morrisons joining Deliveroo in the coming months.

In celebration of the launch in Wisbech, Deliveroo is offering new customers £10 off their first order when they sign up to the platform and use the code WISBECH10 at checkout. This is an offer for new customers only, with a minimum spend of £15 or more.

Deliveroo is also offering all customers 25 per cent off on selected restaurants until July 25.

The launch will be a major boost to small restaurant businesses across Wisbech who will be able to reach new customers and grow their restaurant businesses through offering delivery.

Deliveroo claims working with them increases restaurants’ sales as they can reach a wider range of customers.

Deliveroo will be looking for up to 50 people in Wisbech to become riders. Those who work as riders will be able to work when they want and where they want, delivering food and groceries to customers’ doors in as little as 30 minutes.

This comes as Deliveroo will also be extending further into the suburbs of existing cities or towns that it currently operates in. The drive behind the rapid expansion is underpinned by the company’s belief that people in every part of the UK should have access to amazing meals wherever and whenever they want them.

Berenice Cowan, head of UK expansion for Deliveroo said, "At last, we've arrived in Wisbech! We can't wait to bring everyone great food from local and national favourites, and to help local chefs reach new customers. Hungry foodies, here we come!"

Customers have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible between 11.30am and 11pm on weekdays and 11.30am and 11pm on weekends, from a variety of independent eateries, traditional takeaways, high-quality chain restaurants as well as grocery retailers.
