Delivery offerings expand with the re-opening of dine-in restaurants

takealytics has identified 1,400 restaurants which have re-opened on Deliveroo this month. 850 of which re-opened today (Monday 17th May).

Many restaurants have been unable to open during national lockdowns with the decision that a takeaway only offering would not be sufficient to enable them to continue to run their business over this time. Many restaurants re-opened when restriction changes enabled outside dining. However, for restaurants with no outside dining space they have been long awaiting today's change in restrictions.

Of the 850 restaurants that re-opened today, the majority of which (501), were last open in December, with over 200 last open before then.

Number of Deliveroo venues which re-opened today (17th May) based on month last seen

Some of the big brands which are re-opening today include:

  • Harvester (57 locations)*

  • PizzaExpress (44 locations)

  • Bella Italia (35 locations)

  • Toby Carvery (35 locations)

  • All Bar One (26 locations)

  • Greene King branded (18 locations)

  • Miller & Carter (17 locations)

  • Las Iguanas (17 locations)

* Count of venues open at time of analysis (15:30 17th May 2021).

As shown in takealytics Platform Share Report, Deliveroo has suffered the most over the last 6 months with its heartland being in the Casual Dining Sector.

Whilst Deliveroo has continued to grow its venue offering up 8.2% between Nov '20 and Apr '21, it is considerably lower than that of Just Eat (up 13.5%) and Uber Eats (up 30.4%) and now has less venues on offer on the platform than the other two aggregators and as a result has seen a drop in its share of venues.

Today is an extremely positive and long awaited day for the Hospitality sector, both for restaurants re-opening their dine-in offering as well as increased coverage and offering within the delivery aggregators.
