Deliveroo FAQs Expanded
Where does Deliveroo deliver?
Deliveroo delivers from one place to another. Founded in the 2000’s, Deliveroo specialises in restaurant and fast food delivery, and can deliver from any subscribing restaurant to any customer, anywhere within the range of their 84 cities – that’s right, 84 cities across the UK and Europe are included in their delivery footprint! Please note, a Deliveroo driver will only really be able to deliver food ordered from the same city as the customer is in – even though Deliveroo delivers in both Newcastle, UK and Malmo, Sweden, if I ordered a pizza from my favourite Swedish pizza house in Malmo, it could be a long time before my Deliveroo cyclist cycled all the way to Newcastle to give it to me! And it’s possible that, without the right kind of bike, that even if he could navigate the mountains and highways of Western Europe, across multiple countries, he may not be able to cycle across the English Channel, and may be unable to enter the Channel Tunnel due to the current refugee crisis and subsequent control of the channel.
Therefore, I may actually never get my Swedish pizza. So remember – Deliveroo delivers, but only to the same city as you are in. You’ll need a long-distance courier for longer trips than that.
How do I join Deliveroo?
So, you seek the life of a Deliveroo rider, skater or cyclist! A life of pedalling really hard in all conditions to reach different parts of your home town or city within a designated time limit for pay which is alternately reported as very high and illegally low awaits you – but how do you go about achieving that dream? It seems impossible.
It isn’t – you can do anything you set your mind to, and if you want to cycle for Deliveroo, then you sure as heck can: just go to their official website (this is NOT it) and click “How do I sign up?!”
That’ll take you through to their application form, and you’ll be huffing and puffing in the rain with a backpack full of hot pizzas on in no time!
Who started Deliveroo?
Deliveroo bucks the trend among start-ups when it comes to their founder – and no, it’s not what you’re thinking! It isn’t that Deliveroo doesn’t have a founder, and simply came into being in a cataclysmic cracking of the Earth or a coalescing of primordial oozes, it’s that Deliveroo has TWO founders! Not one, like a normal company. Two!
Deliveroo’s double-trouble dynamic duo are Will Shu and Greg Orlowski, a pair of American-sounding buddies who are actually from the UK! They got started on Deliveroo as kids, when they first began using their bikes to deliver fast food to each other’s houses in exchange for both a subscription charge and a small surcharge, and the idea stuck around when they changed from boys… into men.
How does Deliveroo make money?
It may seem as though Deliveroo is somehow supernaturally sustaining itself, like the Judeo-Christian prophet and Messianic figure Jesus Christ did when he went into the desert for forty days and forty nights without food or water, to seek the Lord. However, Deliveroo is not an ancient biblical figure surviving by the grace of their deity in the harshest of natural environments – it’s a modern company operating in contemporary society, and it’s bound by all the laws of physics!
So unless there’s a secret God out there who only breaks the laws of reality to provide supernatural aid to food delivery companies, Deliveroo has to get its money from somewhere. But how? How do they do it? Don’t lose your mind howling the question to the sky just yet, good reader. Deliveroo seems to have sprung up overnight, and it does seem to be growing at a rate that breaks the Second Law of Thermodynamics – but that’s all a trick of the eye. Don’t worry about it! It’s confirmation bias, one of the most normal of all human biases.
Deliveroo does in fact make money – it even offers its drivers, riders and cyclists a wage much higher than the legal minimum paid by other corporations. How it does this is a simple twofold system – restaurants that use it pay a service charge, and there is also a small surcharge added to the customer to cover the delivery. Think of it as subscription to the service (from the restaurant) and then individual payment for the actual act of service (the customer charge). Like how you’d spend one lot of money on a gun, and then need to separately buy the bullets. Simple! So it’s not supernatural; there’s no blasphemous perversion of the natural order of reality buoying up this incredibly, suddenly omnipresent company. It’s just good old supply and demand.
Deliveroo is a subscription-based delivery service acting as the force-projection component of restaurants and fast food outlets in the UK and Europe. Essentially adapting the Uber model of independently employed contractors, who act as their delivery couriers, Deliveroo as a whole operates as a freelancer organisation which allows companies to outsource their delivery arm to experts – the independently-employed Deliveroo cyclists, whos operational costs are minimal and who have access to transportation methods outside of the restrictive “car/pedestrian” dichotomy. As they are able to weave and move quickly through traffic, they have the possibility of becoming faster than the cars with which they compete – the toned muscles of their cyclist’s legs making them more powerful over broken city terrain than the cars which are forced ot abide by only the open roads.
