Cote, the BC Partners-backed group, has linked up with Deliveroo to trial a delivery options in selected sites across its eponymous 80-strong brand, MCA has learnt.

So far the Cote sites in Market Place, London; Camden and Battersea Rise are offering a delivery option.

MCA understands that Cote will only offer delivery in selected sites going forward and doesn’t see it becoming a core part of its business.

The company, which also operates the Jackson & Rye and Limeyard formats, opened the eightieth site under its eponymous brand in Chelmsford last month.
