A FOOD delivery service has launched in Taunton - and is celebrating with FREE DONUTS.

Restaurants from around the town have signed up to have food delivery through Deliveroo.

To celebrate the launch, Deliveroo is giving away hundreds of free doughnuts around the town centre this Saturday August 17.

The food delivery company is also giving customers 30 per cent off orders for the next four weeks.

The launch will be a boost to small restaurant businesses across Taunton who will be able to reach new customers and grow their restaurant businesses through offering delivery.

More than 50 jobs will be created for local people in Taunton over the course of the first year, with the majority of these being Deliveroo riders, who aim to deliver food, which will be cooked, fresh to order and delivered from the restaurant kitchen to the customers’ door, desk or even the park in under 30 mins.

Harrison Foster, regional director in the UK, said: "Launching in Taunton is a key milestone for Deliveroo. Taunton has a thriving foodie community and a wide range of restaurants, so we’re excited to connect them. We look forward to working with our new restaurant partners to reach a new customer base and expand their businesses. Deliveroo will also create work for 50 local riders and are thrilled to offer a flexible role to the community.”

Customers have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible between 5pm and 11pm on weekdays and 11.30am and 11pm on weekends, from a variety of independent eateries, traditional takeaways and high-quality chain restaurants.
