This expansion initiative led to Deliveroo launching 16 new delivery zones in November catering to more than 1.5 million people across Australia and creating opportunities for 500 riders across the country.
Reflecting back on the last quarter of 2018, Deliveroo expanded more delivery zones across the nation including Hobart, Newcastle and Cairns providing more opportunities for restaurants to reach hungry customers across the country.
We continue to extend our zones further around the surrounding suburbs of our core delivery areas such as Box Hill, Doncaster, Ferntree Gully in Victoria - while in Sydney we have extended our services further into Bankstown, Five Dock, Hornsby, Liverpool and Narrabeen. In Perth, we're also available in Joondalup, and Scarborough. Additionally, up in the Sunshine state, we have expanded to Maroochydore.
We continue to grow from strength to strength offering not only the best selection to our customers, but account management service to our restaurant partners as well as providing flexible, well-paid work to riders.
We are committed to take your restaurant business to the next level and will continue to expand into more delivery areas this year.
