I LOVE Deliveroo

21 Sep 2017

The Mounting Stone – what a perfect venue for a nice little meet with Florence from Deliveroo. Before we go into finding more out about Deliveroo itself, let’s learn a little more about the lovely Florence herself.

Florence grew up in Bramhall on Woodford Road and even went to school at Bramhall High School. After graduating from university, and working in London for a short while she saw an opening at Deliveroo and jumped at the chance to join an exciting new venture. She now works on the restaurant team in the North West, an area including Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, and Sheffield, with Florence focussing largely on Manchester. She spends her time working with all the restaurants that Deliveroo currently have on board and finding new ones to join the revolution.

“Deliveroo is such a fast-growing company. It’s sort of still a start-up but it’s also global!”


Deliveroo was founded in 2013 by an American called Will Shu. He was working in New York, where you can get anything delivered, at any time of day and night. When he moved to London, he noticed how hard it was to get high-quality food options delivered! He decided to tackle this problem head-on, by setting up a delivery service for restaurants. For the first 9 months, he was the only rider! He partnered up with his landlord who owned a restaurant, and that was the start of the foundations for the huge business Deliveroo has become.

12 countries and over 150 cities and towns now have the luxury of the Deliveroo service – what an amazing few years!

Florence’s link with Bramhall has continued with her work now, as Deliveroo covers our wonderful village: yet another perk of living here! Deliveroo pride themselves on working with high-quality restaurants serving delicious food, something that we have in abundance here. The list of restaurants in Bramhall and Cheadle Hulme includes Chilli Banana, Turquoise, Pizza Express, Sangam, Gusto, Garam Massala, La Casetta, and The Mounting Stone which brings us back nicely to where we met!



So, Deliveroo will deliver food from all these places (assuming you’re within the delivery radius) to your house. Whether it’s some Thai food from Chilli Banana or even just one drink from The Mounting Stone, they’ll do it! However much you spend on a delivery, the delivery cost is just £2.50! BARGAIN! From the point of ordering until the point of arrival, Deliveroo aim to take just thirty minutes!



All you have to do is go to the website/app and type in your postcode to see a list of restaurants available in your area. Click on the restaurant you’d like to order from, and select whatever you’d like to eat or drink from the menu. Checkout and you’re done. Just like that! All you have to do now is sit back, relax, and track your rider through the app as they deliver your food in 30 mins.

If you haven’t tried it before then it really is that simple and will bring a whole new meaning to the idea of a takeaway. Give it a try, you won’t be let down. We’re delighted to have met Florence and find out more about Deliveroo and we’re even more delighted to have the Deliveroo service in our area!
