Starting from tomorrow (September 25), residents will be able to order food from a range of restaurants – the company will be partnering with 30 eateries and takeaways by the end of the year.

The British company will be working with both the best independent restaurants like Little Elephant Thai, The Fat Dumpling, Sundaes Gelato and also well-known high street favourites like PizzaExpress, 7Bone Burger Co, and Zizzi.

Deliveroo is an app and website which enables food lovers to check out the very best local food in their area.

Dan Warne, Managing Director of Deliveroo in UK and Ireland, said, “Launching in Eastbourne is a key milestone for Deliveroo. Eastbourne has a thriving foodie community and a wide range of restaurants, so we’re excited to connect them.

“We look forward to working with our new restaurant partners to reach a new customer base and expand their businesses. Deliveroo will also create work for 20 local riders and are thrilled to offer a flexible role to the community.”

The launch is hoped to provide a major boost to small restaurant businesses across Eastbourne which will be able to reach new customers and grow their restaurant businesses through offering delivery.

It is believed more than 20 jobs will be created for local people in town over the course of the first year, with the majority of these being Deliveroo riders, who aim to deliver food, which will be cooked, fresh to order and delivered from the restaurant kitchen to the customers’ door, desk or even the park in under 30 mins.

Customers have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible between 12 noon and 11pm, from a variety of local businesses.
