Deliveroo has announced a significant expansion across Australia, with the launch of 16 new delivery zones throughout November.
The new zones will enable an additional 1.5 million people across Australia to access the Deliveroo platform, while providing greater opportunities for hundreds of restaurants to reach new customers and riders to find flexible, well-paid work.
The new delivery zones will expand Deliveroo’s reach across major cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, and will introduce the Deliveroo platform to customers, restaurants and riders in Hobart, Newcastle and Cairns for the first time.
The expansion will add approximately 500 riders to Deliveroo’s rider fleet in the new areas over the next six months, with plans to grow the number of restaurants available on the platform in new zones to 1,200 in the coming months.
“Deliveroo is excited to continue our expansion across Australia where we are creating flexible working options for thousands of riders, generating more opportunities for restaurants to access new customers and grow their revenues, and allowing customers to order from an even greater selection of amazing foods. This expansion is an important milestone for Deliveroo in what has been a year of strong growth in the Australian market,” Deliveroo Australia Country Manager Levi Aron said.
In addition to Hobart, Newcastle and Cairns, the expansion will see the Deliveroo service now made available to customers in and around the surrounding areas of Melbourne suburbs Box Hill, Doncaster, Ferntree Gully and Heidelberg, while in Sydney the service has expanded to Bankstown, Five Dock, Campsie, Hornsby and Narrabeen and surrounding areas. In Perth the platform is now available in Morley, Joondalup and Scarborough and other nearby suburbs. Additionally, Deliveroo has expanded to Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast.
Deliveroo already operates in 10 Australian cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Geelong, Wollongong and Penrith.
