Deliveroo for Business Introduces Gift Card as the Ultimate Employee ‘Roo-Ward’

Deliveroo, the on-demand food delivery service, announced it will be trialling gift cards for its Deliveroo for Business customers in April, following a successful beta test across multiple markets.

Corporate customers across the UK will be able to purchase Deliveroo gift cards and reward their employees’ hard work, celebrate milestones and offer perks beyond the traditional gym discounts & branded stationery.

Deliveroo for Business launched in September 2016 in response to huge demand from city workers ordering from the Deliveroo app to their desks. The service, which simplifies the process of ordering food through Deliveroo at the office, is currently being used by brands including Facebook, The LADbible Group and Stripe.

Deliveroo for Business works in the same way as Deliveroo’s core business, giving great access to local restaurants with orders arriving within 30 minutes, but corporate customers gain additional useful features including:

  • Spend Limits: gives businesses full control over employee allowance spending
  • Project Codes: perfect for agencies with multiple clients
  • Time & Location Locks: provides the ability for a company to reward early & late workers across the business

Dan Warne, Managing Director of UK & IE said “We’ve seen huge interest from businesses across the country for Deliveroo for Business and we’re thrilled to be able to offer a new way for companies to reward their workforce. Whether its part of a starter pack for new employees, a reward for hard work or a way for companies to celebrate birthdays and work anniversaries we think Deliveroo For Business customers are going to love our new gift cards.”

While the service has grown significantly in all areas, orders of large platters have been extremely popular having grown 64% month-on-month in the last 6 months. The top five platters ordered by offices workers across the UK through Deliveroo for Business are:

  • You Me Sushi – Gyoza platter
  • Shin Ramen – Salmon Zukushi
  • Coconut Grove – Mixed Platter
  • Azaro Indian Dining – Vegetarian Platter For 2
  • Shish – 2 People Platter

The top five overall dishes ordered by corporate customers are:

  • Ahi Poke – Heat Wave
  • Vital Ingredient – Sri Lankan Chicken
  • Leon – Chicken & Chorizo Hot Box
  • Chisou Sushi Counter – California Maki
  • Sushi shop – Fire Roll Sushi

Gift Cards will be available as both physical cards and evouchers starting from £5.
