Online food company Deliveroo has launched new features and services to make it easier for Deliveroo Business customers to order food for events and to hotels.
According to Deliveroo, the new service comes in response to the growing number of Australians ordering Deliveroo at work, and includes hotel room service capabilities, event catering, and fruit basket and snack deliveries to offices.
Following a trial partnership with Meriton Suites in Australia, Deliveroo for Business has now rolled out its hotel room service feature in Australia and globally.
This service will reach up to 9600 hotel rooms across the country at Meriton Suites, Quest Apartments and TFE Hotels, which includes Adina, Travelodge, Vibe and Rendezvous Hotels.
Deliveroo for Business will also offer catering services for large-scale events. The company will also begin trialling a service in the coming months that will allow businesses to use Deliveroo to arrange regular deliveries of fruit and snacks to their offices.
Levi Aron, Deliveroo Australia country manager, said Deliveroo is going from strength to strength in Australia.
“We now have a network of 6500 riders delivering food from over 7,000 restaurants,” Aron said.
“With the expansion of Deliveroo for Business, we are helping businesses streamline the process of providing meals to staff and hotel guests, while ultimately providing even greater opportunities for Australians to access their favourite foods from Deliveroo in even more settings.
“We are also creating further opportunities for restaurants on our platforms to reach more customers at more times.”
Globally, Deliveroo is working with over 7000 corporate customers around the world.
