The Eat Out to Help Out scheme may officially end next week – but Deliveroo has announced a new initiative to give customers discounts off takeaways in September.
The offer will allow customers who spend £20 or more through the app to get £5 off their order, but there are some conditions.
It will only be available on the first three days of the week – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – during each week in September.
And the company says it will only offer cash off the first 100,000 orders at small restaurants each week. National chains will not be part of the deal, unless they pick up the tab themselves.
The delivery company says it wants to encourage people to “eat in to help out” with the move, that will come in as the government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme officially ends.
Some restaurants have already said they will continue offers into September.
“Deliveroo is passionate about supporting local restaurants, who are central to our business and to so many high streets across the UK,” said Deliveroo boss Will Shu.
“Our restaurant partners play a vital role in our economy, just as they do people’s everyday lives, bringing people the food they love.
“We know they have been hit hard recently, and we hope Our Eat IN to Help Out scheme can play a part in helping their businesses through this difficult period.”
