Food delivery giant Deliveroo has said 200 restaurants in Belfast have now signed up to the service, with 300 people working as riders for the firm.

And 60% of the restaurants who have signed up to Deliveroo are independent operators, the company said.

It said that 300 riders had been active over the last week, making deliveries on bicycle to homes around the city.

Deliveroo released an update on its performance here as it marked the fourth anniversary of its arrival in Belfast.

Michael Healy, Deliveroo regional director for north UK and Ireland, said: "Our whole team here at Deliveroo are delighted that our rapid growth in Belfast over the past four years means that customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue, and riders have opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work."

According to Deliveroo, Saturday at 7.13pm is the most popular time for Belfast residents to order from the company.

Chinese food is Belfast's favourite when it comes to placing orders with restaurants though Deliveroo, followed by Mexican and Italian.

Deliveroo is just one of a number of restaurant and takeaway food delivery companies which have expanded in recent years, along with Uber Eats and Just Eat.
