Happiness, Deliverd!


Deliverd makes it easy for you to get super tasty chef-made dishes delivered to you at work, home or a local collection hub in time for your lunch or dinner. You order online (anywhere from a week in advance up to the same day) and we deliver the chilled meals to you by bicycle. Main dishes are just £4, delivery is free and there’s no minimum order!

Our Food

The Deliverd menu is made up of a number of hand-picked chefs’ showcase dishes - meaning you get to pick the very best of what your city has to offer from one menu! There’s Japanese, Spanish, British, Thai, Mexican, Indian…a real emphasis on tastiness, freshness, quality and balance.

How it works

Dishes are delivered chilled (no lukewarm food here!). Some dishes may be eaten cold whilst others are best heated. Just follow our chefs’ simple instructions to create an exciting eating experience in less than five minutes, at the time that suits you best.

Wondering how it all began?

It was a sunny spring day, the birds were singing, the daffodils swayed gently in the wind…nah, only messing, it all began online. Tech geek Paul was frustrated...with his state of health - his answer to ‘What’s for dinner?’ was always pizza or a greasy takeaway, he wanted a better solution that tasted great, was convenient but didn’t break the bank. In another city, a chef called James had been searching for a new adventure within food. Paul searched the web and came across James’ website - it was an old website from a first foray into fusing food with tech, a crude idea that he’d written off after spending all his savings on and almost took offline only weeks before. The conversations began, they had their Eureka moment and Deliverd began in March 2015, in Sheffield on an EU funded accelerator course. The rest is yet to be written.
