Just Eat seals delivery deal with Lincolnshire Co-op

Just Eat and Lincolnshire Co-Op have partnered to offer on-demand grocery delivery, helping the retailer expand its rapid delivery capabilities and offer even more convenience for shoppers.

As the UK’s largest food delivery app, with over 70% of the UK and Ireland now able to take advantage of its on-demand grocery offering, Just Eat is committed to finding new ways to deliver the best service and range of options for its customers.

A total of 27 stores across the society’s trading area now offer delivery from Just Eat, with a further 10 live on the platform taking orders for collection. Locations where you can access the service include: Lincoln, Grantham, Boston, Scunthorpe, Worksop, Peterborough, Gainsborough, Brigg, Newark, Sleaford, Bourne and Horncastle.

From last-minute forgotten essentials to treats for a quiet night in, shoppers can choose from over 950 different food, drink and household essentials, and get them delivered straight to their door within minutes. Shoppers just need to order via the app, and their items are then picked and packed at their local store, before being delivered via Just Eat’s network of delivery drivers.

The new partnership follows the successful collaboration with Central England Co-op which saw the retailer partner with Just Eat to offer delivery from stores across Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, the West Midlands and Yorkshire.

Just Eat UK strategic accounts director, Amy Heather remarked, “As we continue to expand rapidly in the retail space, on-demand grocery delivery will continue to be an area of significant focus. Our exciting new partnership with Lincolnshire Co-op signals our commitment to continually offer convenience across all parts of the UK.

'Being the number one food delivery app, our customers can access everything from delicious meals from their local takeaway or favourite restaurant brand, to stocking up on store cupboard essentials and fresh groceries from their local supermarket or convenience store - all delivered in a matter of minutes.”

Food Project Manager Gavin Willson added, “We’re always looking to provide more services to our customers to make their lives easier - teaming up with Just Eat helps us do just that.”

Just Eat’s grocery estate in the UK has expanded from 20 sites to over 1,800 sites on the platform since launching in January. The service has seen rapid growth over the summer, with over 450 sites rolled out on the platform in July alone, due to successful partnerships with popular retail brands such as Asda, Londis, Budgens, One Stop and Central England Co-Op.

Meanwhile, Just Eat Takeaway.com already supports over 25,000 grocery and convenience stores on its platforms globally, including partnerships with brands such as Spar, Albert Heijn (Ahold), Shell, 7-Eleven, Marqt, PLUS, Pascual Group, Galp, Kibus, Taste of America, Delicatessen Argentina, The Beer Store and Lieferando Express.
