Food delivery platform Foodhub plans to double size of business
Article Date: 2020-07-29
Food delivery platform Foodhub has announced it aims to deliver 20 million meals across the country in 2020 as part of plans to double the size of its business.
Founded in 2017, Foodhub has a network of more than 14,000 takeaway and restaurant partners across the UK.
With more than one million app downloads since its launch, the business has already witnessed 100% growth each year of its restaurant partner network.
The firm recently expanded its management team, with the appointment of Paul Hodkinson as chief technology officer to develop further updates to the website and app.
Unlike similar food delivery services, Foodhub does not charge the restaurants a commission for each order; instead opting for a fixed rental model.
The company said takeaway orders had increased 33% since lock-down began; allowing restaurants to “provide customers an estimated £80,000 savings on their takeaway orders per week”.
Philip Mostyn, Foodhub chief operating officer, said: “Since its inception, Foodhub has been looking to disrupt the food delivery industry with technology firmly at the heart of this disruption.
During these challenging times, we would encourage other food delivery services to introduce a non-commission-based model in order to support independent takeaway restaurants to enable them to thrive in the current climate.”
