ByMolly Mileham-Chappell

Deliveroo, the food delivery service, is heading to Folkestone.

The fast food scheme is due to launch in the town later next month.

The company is now appealing to car, bicycle, scooter or motorbike riders or drivers to deliver food from restaurants across the area.

Some of the fresh food can be delivered to customers in as little as 15 minutes.

New riders are automatically enrolled in a free insurance package to ensure all are covered while out on the road.

Dan Warne, managing director of Deliveroo in UK and Ireland, said: “We’ve seen a huge demand for Deliveroo in Folkestone and we’re excited to be launching this month.

"We’re really excited to be creating new work opportunities.

“The team is looking for people with passion, drive and great customer service, who are seeking the added benefit of flexible hours amongst other perks.

"We would encourage anyone looking for a fast paced and active job to apply through our website.”

Customers have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible from independent eateries, traditional takeaways and high-quality chain restaurants, conveniently delivered to their homes.

The company has also announced today that the service will be available in Margate too.

It comes after Uber Eats launched in the town in April.
