Dublin, 16th February 2022: Deliveroo has seen the number of customer orders in Dublin increase by more than 140% since the start of the pandemic, highlighting the continued popularity of getting your favourite restaurant dishes delivered to your door in as little as 30 minutes.
During this period, Burritos have secured the top spot as the most popular dish in Dublin households, closely followed by a Cheeseburger and Fries. Yet many people in Dublin have been choosing healthier preferences, this is evident from Deliveroo data which shows a 69% increase in the number of orders from healthy restaurants over the past year. A salad bowl is the top most ordered healthy dish, and smashed avocado is a consistent favourite.
Deliveroo data also shows that the people of Dublin have been experimenting with more cuisines - American, Chinese and Japanese remain the most popular, whilst Greek food orders have increased over 150% over the past year. The increase in range of cuisines is unsurprising given that more than 440 new restaurants in Dublin joined Deliveroo's platform since the start of the pandemic, including favourites such as Mad Egg, Sprezzatura, BuJo, Jaipur, PI and All Bar Chicken.
To facilitate the growth of the business in Ireland, Deliveroo recently opened a new office in North Dock in Dublin with the team focusing on business development across Ireland. This is in addition to the more than 1,000 self-employed riders across the country that Deliveroo continues to work with.
Deliveroo is committed to supporting the growth of small and independent restaurants and throughout the pandemic they provided a vital lifeline to the hospitality industry in the city by helping many restaurants implement new delivery services to sustain their business.
