Hungryhouse.co.uk hits restaurant milestone

Linked InTwitterFacebookeCard


Online takeaway website Hungryhouse.co.uk now offers customers around the UK deliveries from 2,500 restaurants, including Chinese, Indian, Thai, Italian and Japanese.

The site, which three years ago won an offer of £100,000 on Dragon’s Den from investors Duncan Bannatyne and James Caan, has doubled the number of restaurants it works with in the last 14 months. Tonight it will feature on BBC2’s Dragon’s Den – What Happened Next? (9pm). In the event, although the company was offered the money and shook hands on it on television, it ultimately did a deal with another investor instead.

Mandeep Singh, national sales manager at hungryhouse.co.uk, founded in 2006, said: “We were so happy to reach the milestone of 2,500 restaurant partnership, especially given the extensive growth we have witnessed in the past 14 months. It seems that restaurant owners are growing increasingly savvy as to the powers of the internet.”

Orders worth more than £200,000 are placed online through the site each week. Users can see menus, order and pay direct, while more than 125,000 customer ratings help influence decisions.

Marketing manager Graeme Horne said: “We have certainly seen a large increase in the number of users of our site in the past 12 months alone, something I think you could put down to the increasing time restraints of modern life. Ordering your takeaway online not only creates a time oasis, but it’s a convenient and relaxing way to order a delivery and relaxed customers place larger orders.”
