Online food delivery service Deliveroo has seen an 80% spike in the number of restaurants using the platform in the last two weeks in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
More than 100 restaurants have signed up to the Deliveroo service as they transition from dine-in to delivery-only in a bid to keep their businesses going during the pandemic.
To manage this increased demand, Deliveroo has re-assigned teams of people across the business to onboard new restaurant partners and support restaurants who want to carry out deliveries but have no previous experience. The company has also dropped its new-restaurant onboarding fee.
Deliveroo has also published detailed guidance on how restaurants can run delivery-only outlets safely, covering issues such as how to minimise contact, packaging and hygiene best practice.
