Deliveroo, the food delivery app that lets you get takeaway meals from your favourite restaurants, is now going into the breakfast delivery business, starting this Friday (27 May), with nine food outlets already signed up.
Since setting up in Ireland just over a year ago, Deliveroo has proven pretty popular with takeaway enthusiasts, having most recently opened for business in Limerick, as well as having locations in Cork, Galway, Belfast and Dublin.
Now, the company is going to start moving into the breakfast delivery business in the latter location, with it announcing plans to start delivering food from nine popular Dublin eateries from 9am this Friday to people located in Dublin 1, 2 and 4.
This will make it one of the first services to truly try and crack food delivery in the early hours, despite a short-lived effort by The Dublin Hangover Service, which promised to deliver breakfast rolls to people who were, well, hungover.
The nine eateries chosen to launch the service are Brother Hubbard, Cocu, Doughboys, Sister Sadie, Eathos, Freshii, Krust Bakery, Counter Culture, and the Dublin Cookie Co and it will operate from Friday to Sunday only.
Oliver Dewhurst, general manager of Deliveroo Ireland, said of the move: “Whether you’re craving a BLT or a fresh coffee to help you recover from a heavy night out, or you need a health boost before hitting the gym, or maybe you just want to treat yourself to an indulgent breakfast in bed, our riders will be at your door within 32 minutes to satisfy all your weekend breakfast needs.”
Speaking back in July, the company’s founder, Will Shu, told Siliconrepublic.com about the company’s intentions to expand rapidly in Ireland, and elsewhere, creating dozens of jobs in the process, both for delivery drivers and behind the scenes.
