Since its launch in the town last year, more than 40 restaurants have signed up to the platform.

Deliveroo has created work for more than 50 people, with the majority of these being the Deliveroo riders who deliver your food which is cooked fresh to order and delivered to your door within 30 minutes.

Deliveroo supports local Swindon businesses, with 75 percent of its restaurant partners being local independent restaurants, creating new revenue streams for homegrown culinary talent.

In 2016 Deliveroo created £200m in additional revenue for the restaurant industry in the UK.

A spokesperson for Deliveroo, said: “After delivering meals for the last year to hungry residents in Swindon we’ve learnt a thing or two about what locals like to eat.

“We’re proud to support so many of the very best local restaurants in Swindon alongside national favourites too. It’s been truly amazing to hear stories about how local restaurants have been able to expand their businesses to other areas because of the additional revenue Deliveroo is generating for them.

“We will continue to provide the best service possible for our Swindon customers, riders and restaurant partners as we grow.”

The Restaurant Manager at Rooster’s Grill Shack said: ““Deliveroo has been great as it has attracted a different type of clientele and has taken the pressure off of the business by delivering the food”
