Deliveroo for Business offers new festive treats to bring Xmas cheer

Deliveroo for Business, the corporate arm of Deliveroo, has today unveiled an exclusive new Christmas range to help save Christmas parties this festive season. Businesses will be able to treat their employees and help them celebrate Christmas with exclusive bundles and hampers to enjoy in December.

The new festive range, made in partnership with customers’ favourite brands such as Majestic Wine and Dishoom, include everything from cocktail making kits and cookery courses, to virtual master classes, Christmas hampers and live comedy and music. The new kits are perfect to get teams together, and thank staff for their work this year.

With traditional office Christmas party plans put on ice due to the pandemic, businesses have been searching for new ways to allow their staff to celebrate this festive season. Indeed, Deliveroo for Business has seen a huge spike in companies using food and drink treats to help keep staff connected and raise morale as the nation faces further social distancing restrictions, with a 150% surge of home delivery orders this past month.

The new festive range will also support restaurants and hospitality firms who face difficulties in not being able to host Christmas parties for corporates this year. Independent restaurants and local businesses who rely on revenue from the festive period will be able to offer firms especially designed bundles to allow their staff to enjoy Christmas parties from home.

The new Christmas range announcement comes as Deliveroo reveals that Deliveroo for Business sales grew 10% in October. Bosses are also using e-gift cards to allow employees to pick their own meals for special occasions, with sales of the vouchers x5/330% higher in October than in March.

Juan Diego Farah, Global Head of Deliveroo for Business, said: “With Christmas around the corner, we know the usual Christmas party and all the fun they bring, won’t be able to happen this year. That’s why Deliveroo for Business have just launched our new Festive Season Virtual Party range in order to bring the party right to people’s living rooms!”

Rob Cooke, CCO, Majestic Wine, said, 'One of the best things about this time of year is being able to get together with colleagues, friends and family and share a glass or two of something special. We are therefore really excited to be working with Deliveroo to help keep the great wines and great conversations flowing - even at a time when we cannot get together in person.

'Whether it's a special bottle of fizz, a nice bottle of red to go with your meal or something a little stronger for an impromptu Zoom cocktail party - customers have been exploring our Deliveroo-delivered range all year from the comfort of their own home. And it's great that, with Christmas on the horizon, we're working together to spread a little more joy during an unprecedented festive period.'
