Roofoods Ltd. (branded as Deliveroo) is a British online food delivery company.

Deliveroo is on a mission to transform the way the world thinks about food delivery. It’s not a chicken chow mein and a night on the sofa anymore, it’s your favourite local restaurant, it’s a dinner party, a date.

Deliveroo was founded in 2013 by Will Shu and Greg Orlowski. The company is based in London and it operates in two hundred cities in the UK, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Australia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, and Hong Kong.

Deliveroo makes money by charging restaurants a commission fee, as well as by charging customers a fee per order.

Deliveroo works with some of the biggest chain restaurants across the UK, with the majority being available exclusively on the Deliveroo app along with thousands of independent restaurants. 


Deliveroo is by Fidelity, Amazon, DST Global, Index Ventures, General Catalyst, T. Rowe Price, Durable Capital Partners and others. The company raised $180M in a Pre-IPO financing on Jan 17, 2021. This brings Deliveroo's total funding to $1.7B to date. The latest round pushed Deliveroo's valuation to $7B, from its previous $3.5B valuation gained in Jul 2019.
