Deliveroo launches restaurant reward scheme

The new package of support is designed to help restaurants cut costs and focus on expansion and new menu items.

Deliveroo has launched a new support site for restaurants to help them reduce everyday business expenses. The company has also unveiled a new portal offering restaurant staff benefits and discounts to boost staff retention. The brand new Deliveroo restaurant perks website is part of efforts from Deliveroo to broaden its offer to restaurants beyond just the increased sales and revenue associated with listing on the platform.

Deliveroo is using its scale to negotiate favourable rates and discounts to benefit the wide range of restaurant it works with. Offers available to 10,000 of Deliveroo’s restaurant partners include up to 5% off green energy bills negotiated and waived broker fees, up to 28% discounts on job advertisement boards, reduced fees for using temps and preferential rates for specialist recruitment firms, and up to 10% off on printing services.

Exclusive restaurant partners will get access to a restaurant staff benefits portal provided by WRKIT – one of the UK's employee engagement providers. Employees can save between £300 - £500 per year through big savings on everyday expenses and luxury treats including: cinema tickets, meals out, travel, gyms, high-street brands and much more.

Restaurants will also receive up to 25% off training courses in areas such as food safety, supplier management, and nutrition through the new Deliveroo perks website.

The site and staff discounts are available to all restaurants who partner with Deliveroo but some perks are either only available or available at a better rate for restaurants that exclusively partner with Deliveroo.

Deliveroo UK managing director Dan Warne said, "Deliveroo is passionate about food and we therefore want to help great restaurants to grow. We have been working with restaurants to understand what would help their businesses and we are proud to announce a package of support that will cut their day-to-day costs, meaning they can focus on what matters: producing amazing food.

"Deliveroo is all about bringing amazing food to customers, whenever and wherever they want it. By helping restaurants we will be able to deliver even more new and exciting meals to people. 

"I'm really pleased that we are going to be able to give something more back to restaurant staff, who might not otherwise have access to the kinds of reward schemes staff in other industries benefit from."

The discounts and perks offered by Deliveroo are in addition to the increased revenue restaurants gain from working with the food delivery platform. According to research, restaurants who partner with Deliveroo see their revenue increase by up to 30% helping them and their suppliers grow.
