Deliveroo now available for office functions

Pack away the sandwiches, Deliveroo will now cater for your next business event.

A source of jealousy when it comes to lunchtime in the office, the popular meal delivery service is looking to expand its operations to include catering for work functions and events.

Following a trial partnership with Meriton Suites to expand its services to hotel room service – which now includes Quest Apartments and TFE Hotels – Deliveroo has now set its sights on the breakroom, just in time for the office Christmas party.

“Deliveroo is going from strength-to-strength,” states Deliveroo Australia Country Manager, Levi Aron. “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.

“We now have a network of 6,500 delivering food from over 7,000 restaurants.”

Office workers can use Deliveroo for Business similarly to the regular Deliveroo service, with the website and app showing nearby options and delivery times.

The main difference comes from the payment screen, where office workers have the option to add their bill to a company account, which notifies a manager to ensure that free lunches don’t go unnoticed.

Account managers can also create an allowance for team lunches, outlining spending amounts or how many workers can get in on the action. Managers will also receive a monthly bill, meaning you won’t have to tiptoe the finance department every time you shout your team lunch.

The Deliveroo for Business service is also set to include regular fruit deliveries and snacks, helping to cover all cravings within the office.

What’s for lunch?

In Canstar Blue’s latest restaurant meal delivery ratings, Deliveroo was rated three stars for overall satisfaction, with the brand beat out by competitors UberEATS and Menulog.

Despite the three-star review, Deliveroo was rated four stars for customer service and variety of meals, with the UK brand remaining a popular option for hungry consumers.

In the survey, Canstar Blue found that 62% of respondents had tried more than one restaurant meal delivery service, with 77% expecting to use these meal delivery services in the future, highlighting that while the handy service is already widely used, you can expect to see the Deliveroo brand around the office a bit more with the inclusion of catering services.

Still, nothing beats a free lunch, right?
