Food delivery business Deliveroo has taken a ten-year lease on a Birmingham city centre warehouse as the firm’s offering strengthens.

The business, which collects food from a host of partner restaurants and delivers it to people’s front doors, has taken on a 6,092 sq ft industrial unit on Upper Gough Street close to The Mailbox.

Tom Morley of Harris Lamb’s Agency team, who oversaw the letting, said: “Deliveroo’s business model has grown significantly and it no longer simply acts as a conduit between restaurant and diner. Rather, it is now preparing food onsite.

“The intention is to refit the unit with a number of kitchens so that chefs are able to base themselves there to extend Deliveroo’s regional commercial and corporate offering.

“This unit’s location in the heart of the city centre and its close proximity to main arterial routes made it the perfect site for the operation,” he added.

The unit  has parking spaces for ten vehicles.

Deliveroo, which was founded in 2013, has taken on a lease with a five-year break term.

Colliers acted for Deliveroo.
