A FOOD delivery service is celebrating three years of providing meals to hungry Ellesmere Port customers by serving up a feast of facts.

New data from Deliveroo, which is marking its third year in the town, reveals Friday at 7.52pm is the most popular time for Ellesmere Port residents to order from the service.

Further data has shown locals love American food the most, followed by Chinese and Indian dishes.

The top five most popular dishes ordered through Deliveroo are:

  • Boneless Banquet from KFC
  • Bacon Cheeseburger from Five Guys
  • Spicy Hot Box from Wok and Go
  • Merthi Chicken from Saffron Restaurant
  • Ancho Chicken Burrito from Kick Ass Burrito

Since its launch in the town three years ago, more than 50 restaurants have signed up to the platform.

Deliveroo has created work for more than 60 people, with the majority of these being the Deliveroo riders.

Local businesses have benefited too in Ellesmere Port, with 60 per cent of its restaurant partners being local independent restaurants, creating new revenue streams for homegrown culinary talent.

Harison Foster, regional director of Deliveroo, said: “Our whole team here at Deliveroo are delighted that our rapid growth in Ellesmere Port

over the past three years means that customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue, and riders have opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work.”

Deliveroo was founded in 2013 by William Shu and Greg Orlowski. It works with over 80,000 best-loved restaurants and takeaways, as well as 60,000 riders, and operates in over 500 towns and cities across 14 markets, including Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and the United Kingdom.
