Deliveroo is now available in Folkestone

By Sam Williams

Food courier service Deliveroo is now available in another Kent town.

The service officially launched yesterday (Thursday) in Folkestone following an announcement last month that it would come to the seaside town.

Customers can now order from more than 20 restaurants and takeaways in the area at the push of a button, with more planned to join the service later in the year.

Eateries signed up to the platform include chains KFC and Burger King and independent's Harbour Fish Bar and Planet Earth Kitchen.

A full list of the restaurants available on the service is below.

The fast food scheme sees customers order food through the Deliveroo website or app, with the food then being delivered by a car or bike.

Bosses behind the service say more than 50 jobs will be created in Folkestone over the course of the first year, with the majority of these being riders.

Deliveroo, which is available in 14 different countries, already serves Canterbury and Ashford in Kent.

Harrison Foster, Regional Director in the UK, said: "Launching in Folkestone is a key milestone for Deliveroo.

"Folkestone has a thriving foodie community and a wide range of restaurants, so we’re excited to connect them.

"We look forward to working with our new restaurant partners to reach a new customer base and expand their businesses.

"Deliveroo will also create work for 50 local riders and are thrilled to offer a flexible role to the community."

To celebrate the launch, Deliveroo is giving away hundreds of free doughnuts around the town centre this Saturday.
