Delivery services saved 100,000 restaurant jobs, study finds

A new study by Capital Economics has reported that delivery services such as Deliveroo protected around 100,000 restaurant jobs in the UK from being lost or furloughed over the period between April and June.

The survey shows that Deliveroo’s partners used the furlough scheme at a lower rate than the hospitality sector as a whole (33% versus 73% respectively), which reportedly underlined the “value of the trade generated by delivery services” to both restaurants and to the exchequer.
