Last mile delivery company Deliveroo has opened three new delivery-only kitchens in Acton, Brent, and Dulwich, in London.

The company announced the opening of its ‘Editions’ kitchens to cater to the increase in online ordering for food.

The new delivery-only kitchens form part of Deliveroo’s plan to grow its Editions service and roll out more sites across the country, and follows the successful opening of sites in London and Bristol earlier this year. After pioneering the creation of delivery-only kitchens in 2016, the company now has Editions sites across the UK, including Manchester, Leeds, and Brighton.

The new sites will host several restaurants, including Five Guys, Shake Shack, and Tao Tao Ju, among others.

Deliveroo’s expansion of its delivery-only kitchens sits alongside the recent launch of ‘Hop’ – the company’s rapid grocery service. In a partnership with Morrisons, customers can have groceries delivered in 10 minutes. This new service complements Deliveroo’s existing on-demand grocery offer, which delivers from more than 4,600 partner grocery stores in the UK.

“We are really excited to expand our Editions kitchens and bring amazing cuisines to even more consumers across the country. Our delivery-only Editions kitchens have been a game-changer for the food delivery industry, and will continue to play a vital role in helping restaurants recover from the pandemic and drive growth,” said Will Shu, CEO and Founder of Deliveroo.

Adding, Emily Tang, co-founder of Tao Tao Ju said: The partnership between [the two companies]aims to bring a taste of Chinatown to even more homes across London. The investment by Deliveroo into its Editions sites and the expert knowledge of the Editions team means that we can reach even more customers and boost our order growth.”
