PizzaExpress and Deliveroo have announced a new two-year exclusive delivery deal across the UK and Ireland that will cover 290 restaurants.

The deal will build on the 105 UK towns and cities where PizzaExpress already works with Deliveroo after originally getting together five years ago.

The new revamped partnership will also see the restaurant chain adopt Deliveroo’s new Signature service which enables customers to order directly on PizzaExpress’s website and social channels.

Zoe Bowley, PizzaExpress managing director said: “The early results of our new partnership are already evident, with the last two weeks producing our highest ever sales weeks with Deliveroo.”

Stephen Goldstein, EVP Restaurants at Deliveroo said the deal allowed PizzaExpress to build stronger direct relationships with its most loyal customers, “providing added flexibility as they manage their growing digital business.”
