DELIVEROO has launched in Blackburn – bringing tasty treats direct to the door of hungry customers.

A number of eateries have signed up to the popular food delivery service, including Pepe’s Piri Piri in Victoria Street and Finest Italian, King Street.

People will be able to order from both chain and independent restaurants, with 50 to choose from by the end of 2019.

Deliveroo will create 50 new jobs in Blackburn in the first year as they need delivery riders.

Other places teaming up with them include KFC and Burger King, as well as Kaspas, Harry’s and The Fig & The Olive.

Haroon Sultan, manager at The Fig & The Olive, Shear Brow, said: “We have been thinking about deliveries for a while now so Deliveroo came around at the right time.

“There were alternatives but they don’t have the reputation Deliveroo have so we were quite excited to get on board when we heard they have come to Blackburn.

“We are a small family-run business, we don’t have a large demand for deliveries so we are hoping it will up the demand for takeaway food, it is all very new to us. We are hoping we can increase revenue.”

As well as ordering to your home or workplace, Deliveroo say they will happily send food to other locations including the park.

Mr Sultan said: “If they can deliver to the park we are happy to provide the food. As long as they deliver the food in a good condition, they can take it to wherever they want. For us quality is key so we are hoping we can maintain the high standards with delivered food.”

Dan Warne, managing director of Deliveroo in UK and Ireland, said: “Launching in Blackburn is a key milestone for Deliveroo. Blackburn has a thriving foodie community and a wide range of takeaways, so we’re excited to connect them.”

Customers can schedule orders via the app up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible between 5pm and midnight.
