FOOD delivery company Deliveroo is on the hunt for more riders in Limerick after seeing a spike in people using its service in the city.

The British food-delivery company said it has more work available for riders at Deliveroo as orders across Limerick rocket.

New figures released today by Deliveroo show the company’s rapid growth across Limerick in the past 12 months – with lunch orders increasing by 228% in the last 12 months. The Doner Kebab from Abrakebabra takes the top spot for most popular lunch order in the city. 

Deliveroo, which has around 50,000 riders worldwide has been delivering meals in the city for three years now, working with over 40 restaurants. It expects to double this number by the end of 2019.

It said the increase in order growth means that Deliveroo is able to offer more paid, flexible work, with riders earning over €10 per hour on average across Ireland and the UK. Current riders who successfully refer someone new to Deliveroo in Limerick will receive up to €250.

“We’re proud to be offering more locals in Limerick well-paid flexible work and have been astounded by the huge growth we’ve seen in the city,” said Dan Warne, UK and Ireland Managing Director.
