Deliveroo has name the most commonly delivered dishes in 60 towns and cities across the country in a list published by the Evening Standard.
In Brighton the most frequent order is for the “Dead Hippie” – a burger – from Meat Liquor, near St Peter’s Church, in York Place, Brighton.
Burgers were the top dish in 28 out of the 60 places listed. Thai food was top in seven places, six prefer burritos and with pizza topping the list in four.
One of those was the Scottish town of Livingston which favoured Pizza Express mergheritas. And Cheltenham chose fish and chips – the only town to do so.
The list emerged days after Deliveroo riders in Brighton threatened to protest and strike if the company doesn’t pay them more and stop over-hiring.
The multinational online food delivery firm is part of the gig economy and claims that it does not directly employ its riders.
This exempts it from paying the minimum wage and other basic benefits such as rest breaks, sick and holiday pay, it says.
But after a ruling last year that Uber drivers are employees not contractors, the Independent Workers Union (IWGB) is seeking a similar ruling for Deliveroo riders.
Meanwhile, it is calling on the company to improve the pay per delivery from £4 to £5 and to stop over-hiring, which it says has led to riders sometimes waiting up to four hours for a job.
