Residents in Washington will soon be able to order food straight to their homes via the Deliveroo app, from a range of independent eateries, takeaways, chain restaurants and supermarkets.

The app will be launched in Washington later next month as the company look to hire new riders to deliver food ahead of the launch.

Customers have the option to order from restaurants and grocery partners up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible.
