Deliveroo pays self-employed cyclists and drivers to deliver takeaway food from restaurants which do not have a takeaway network. A smartphone app allows customers to browse restaurants which have signed up to Deliveroo.

Restaurants in Ipswich which have joined Deliveroo include Chinese restaurant East Ocean in Fore Street, Casablanca in Tacket Street, Zizzi and Degeros in St Nicholas Street, and Locanda Di Parma in St Peter’s Street.

Deliveroo is now aiming to recruit more than 50 riders in Ipswich to deliver the takeaway food within 30 minutes.

The company was founded in 2013 and its delivery drivers have become a common sight in cities across Britain. It has also launched in Europe, Australia and Asia.

Caroline Hazlehurst, general manager at Deliveroo, said: “We’re extremely excited to be launching in Ipswich and we’re looking forward to bringing some of the town’s delicious dishes straight from the hands of local chefs to customers’ doors.

“Our new riders in Ipswich are now kitted out in their new hyper-reflective kit and locals can order from the fantastic variety of restaurants in Ipswich, whatever they want, whenever they want, all from the comfort of their own home, office desk or wherever else hunger strikes.

“We already have a number of great partners across the town and we are excited to expand and widen the variety of restaurants on offer to our customers in Ipswich over the course of the next year.”

A spokesman for Degeros said: “We’re really happy to have partnered with Deliveroo as it gives us great opportunities to expand and reach customers we might not have been able to.”

Customers can schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible between 12 noon and 11pm. Deliveroo says orders are received in an average of 30 minutes.

  • Praise the Lord - I have no "smart" phone and therefore no obesity issues. Also I am able to walk around town without the need to carry either a coffee or a bottle of water. Anyone else also find it quicker to click out of this website and re-enter when trying to read separate news stories owing to the plethora of futile adverts on here that take ages to allow each page to download?
