Deliveroo says the new service, being rolled out this month, will allow restaurants with their own rider fleets to join Deliveroo and make deliveries using their own drivers while also being able to make use of its Australian rider network.
According to Deliverooo, the nationwide launch of Marketplace+ means customers on the app will see both restaurants who make use of Deliveroo’s network of riders ‘core’ delivery network and restaurants who deliver meals themselves.
Marketplace+ has already been rolled out by Deliveroo in other countries, including the UK, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Deliveroo Australia country manager Levi Aron said that with the launch of Marketplace+ in Australia Deliveroo is taking the next step towards becoming the “definitive food company that can provide consumers the best selection, price and service”.
“Today we are unveiling the next big step in our plan to offer customers an even greater choice of restaurants, at a greater range of prices, while continually improving service. Our ambition is to become the definitive food company and this is a vital part of achieving that aim.
“Deliveroo will work with thousands more restaurants as we grow across Australia."
