Deliveroo’s plans to help restaurants reduce costs


Food delivery company Deliveroo is helping restaurants reduce costs by partnering up with different business services. Deliveroo has announced the launch of a range of restaurant perks across Australia, designed to offer restaurants the opportunity to find savings, reduce time and create greater efficiencies within their business.

The Restaurant Perks program, which will see Deliveroo partner with organisations including Sidekicker and Tyro to deliver easy and discounted access to essential business services, will focus on helping to find improvements in six key sectors: utilities, recruitment, card payments, financial support, restaurant operations, and printing.

At a time when restaurants have seen costs increase across their industry, Deliveroo is using its scale to negotiate favourable rates and discounts to benefit the wide range of restaurant it works with.

“Deliveroo is passionate about food and wants to help great restaurants to grow. We have been working with restaurants to understand what would help their businesses and are proud to announce our new Restaurant Perks program, offering a package of support that will cut their day-to-day costs, meaning they can focus on what matters: producing amazing food,”  said Deliveroo Australia Country Manager Levi Aron.

“We know how much is involved in running a restaurant. With restaurant perks, Deliveroo is excited to be bringing more than just food to the table by designing a program that offers business service perks to our restaurant partners. Deliveroo is proud to be the first and only online food company offering a restaurant perks program.”

According to the food delivery company, restaurants that partner with Deliveroo around the world see their revenue increase by up to 30%, and the company anticipates that these new measures could open up even more opportunities for Australian restaurants to grow their revenue even further.

This comes as Deliveroo starts to offer restaurants new insights to help them improve their business. Through Restaurant Home, Deliveroo will offer the following data insights:

  • Delivered orders, to increase delivered orders
  • Prep time, to speed up delivery times
  • Order ratings, to improve overall service

This package of support for restaurants will begin rolling out to restaurants across Australia this week, which currently numbers at 8,500 restaurants across 13 cities. While the perks program currently includes seven partners, Deliveroo plans to add more partners in the coming months.
