Deliveroo has revealed a town's most popular takeaways as it marks a year in the area.

Among the other meals regularly picked by Maidstone diners were the Boneless Banquet from KFC, Chicken Katsu Curry from Wagamama, Cookie Dough Utopia from Creams and Casareccia Pollo Piccante from Zizzi.

Since Deliveroo's launch in the town 12 months ago, more than 30 restaurants have signed up to the platform, with 40 jobs also having been created in the process.

The firm says it is working hard to support local businesses in Maidstone, with 50% percent of its restaurant partners being local independent restaurants, creating new revenue streams for homegrown culinary talent.

Dan Warne, managing director of Deliveroo in UK and Ireland said: "Our whole team here at Deliveroo are delighted that our rapid growth in Maidstone over the past year means that customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue, and riders have opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work."

The manager at Thai Orchard added: “Working with Deliveroo has been great, they really take the pressure off deliveries at our end and leave us to do what is important - cook the food.

"Since we joined Deliveroo we have seen our output go up considerably as we have been able to reach consumers we could not reach before.”

Customers have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance, or receive food as soon as possible between 11.30am and 11pm, and from 11.30am on the weekends, where at the click of a button, their order will be delivered straight to their door in under 30 minutes.

In January, Deliveroo also launched its £7.99 a month subscription service, Deliveroo Plus, enabling Maidstone food lovers to get unlimited free delivery whilst providing them with new discounts every month.
