Online food delivery platform Deliveroo has expanded its network by introducing catering and delivery services to hotel guests across Australia.

The company has tested the service in collaboration with Meriton Suites before rolling it out to other businesses.

Deliveroo has partnered with hotel organisations, including Quest Serviced Apartments and TFE Hotels to unveil the service. These firms cover hotel brands such as Adina, Travelodge, Vibe and Rendezvous Hotels.

According to Deliveroo Australia country manager Levi Aron, the new hotel service offers more opportunities for restaurant partners to reach customers.

“We are also creating further opportunities for restaurants on our platforms to reach more customers at more times.”

Aron was quoted by media sources as saying: “Deliveroo is going from strength to strength in Australia, and we now have a network of 6,500 riders delivering food from over 7,000 restaurants.

“With the expansion of Deliveroo for Business, we are helping businesses streamline the process of providing meals to staff and hotel guests, while ultimately providing even greater opportunities for Australians to access their favourite foods from Deliveroo in even more settings.

“We are also creating further opportunities for restaurants on our platforms to reach more customers at more times.”
