DELIVEROO has revealed the most popular dishes requested by customers across Poole.

The online food delivery service is celebrating its third birthday in the town, with more than 35 restaurants signing up for the service since its arrival.

Data shows that 7.12pm on Friday is the most popular time for Poole residents to order their food, and that American takeaway is the most popular, followed by Japanese and Thai.

According to Deliveroo the most popular dishes are:

  • Grilled Chicken Wrap from Chicken & Blues
  • Boneless Banquet from KFC
  • Katsu Chicken from Noodle Bar
  • Pad Thai from Koh Noi in Lilliput
  • Cod and Chips from Nick the Fish

Deliveroo's UK and Ireland managing director Dan Warne said: "Our whole team here at Deliveroo are delighted that our rapid growth in Poole over the past three years means that customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue and riders have the opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work."

As a Deliveroo rider you download the app, and it will let you know when an order in your area has been made. Then it is up to you to swipe and accept the job.

There are two pay structures with the company. With the original model, riders are paid an hourly wage which is topped up with small additional payments for each delivery.

Riders can also be exclusively paid on deliveries, but with a larger fee.

According to Deliveroo the average wage is £10 an hour, although, for riders on the fee per delivery model, this can rise to around £12 an hour.

A company spokesman said: "Since its launch in the town three years ago, more than 35 restaurants have signed up to the platform. Deliveroo has created work for more than 40 people, with the majority of these being the Deliveroo riders who deliver your food which is cooked fresh to order and delivered to your door within 30 minutes.

"Deliveroo supports local businesses in Poole, with 60 per cent of its restaurant partners being local independent restaurants, creating new revenue streams for homegrown culinary talent."
