Food delivery company Deliveroo says its newest “dark kitchen” in Dubai is its largest in the world.

The Deliveroo Editions hub, on Hessa Street, will prepare dishes on behalf of more than a dozen restaurants featured on the food delivery platform and send them out to customers.

Since 2017, Deliveroo has spearheaded the off-site, delivery-only kitchen space in the UAE. Editions kitchens have proven to be a great way to help its restaurant partners expand without the up-front investment.

The kitchen will serve customers in Al Quoz, Arabian Ranches, Al Barsha South, Jumeirah Village Circle, Studio City, Sports City, Production City, and Motor City, as well as at Madinat Jumeirah.

It is the second dark kitchen Deliveroo has opened on Hessa Street. It also has bases in Business Bay and Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

Food delivery firms around the world say business has increased since the onset of the pandemic.

Deliveroo reported a 114% global increase in orders in the first three months of 2021, compared with the same period last year.
