Across these past eight years, Deliveroo has become a city staple, with the area for most restaurant orders being in Sheffield city centre, whilst in second and third spots are Broomhall and Highfield. 

People go to Deliveroo as it offers a world of food on their doorstep. American cuisine has been a consistent favourite with all residents in Sheffield over recent years, whilst data has also found that residents in the city centre love ordering burgers, whilst those living on the outskirts of the city can't get enough of the Italian favourite, pizza. 

Bethany Moreman, city manager for Sheffield, said: “We are delighted to celebrate eight years of delivering food to locals in Sheffield; our rapid growth has meant customers can discover a world of cuisines, from pizza and fried chicken to pad thai. 

“Even after eight years, we're as passionate today about offering the best local food as we were when we launched, and we continue to enable Sheffield restaurants to increase their revenue and give riders the opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work. We are looking forward to riding into the next eight years.”
