Takeaway and grocery delivery business Deliveroo is coming to Exmouth in Devon, it has been confirmed.

Deliveroo announced yesterday (January 12) that it expects to expand its services into around 100 new towns and cities in 2021 across the UK, following a year of growth for the company in 2020.

The takeaway delivery company will launch in new towns and cities throughout all corners of the UK, including in Yeovil, Bangor (Northern Ireland), East Kilbride, King’s Lynn, Scarborough, Llanelli and Exmouth, after seeing customer demand for delivery services rise over the past year.

According to the Mirror, Deliveroo currently operates in over 150 locations and said it will expand its reach from these existing sites over the year.

In 2020, Deliveroo rapidly grew its number of restaurant partnerships as thousands more businesses signed up to the delivery business in light of coronavirus restrictions.

Carlo Mocci, Deliveroo’s chief business officer for UK and Ireland, said: “We are pleased to announce that we expect to launch in around 100 new towns and cities across the UK and expand our reach in existing areas throughout 2021 with the aim of reaching almost two thirds of the population.

“With further lockdown measures now in place across the UK, we want to do everything possible to help households get the food they need and want and play our role to make sure families across the country have a wide selection of amazing food, drink and household products to order in as little as 30 minutes.”

The company also said it created work for an additional 25,000 riders last year, taking its number of riders to more than 50,000.
