Just Eat and Caffè Nero, the family-owned premium coffee house, today announce a new delivery partnership which sees the Just Eat platform offer the Caffè Nero menu from over 400 stores across the UK.
As the UK’s largest food delivery platform, Just Eat reaches 97% of all UK postcodes, meaning the partnership will allow Caffè Nero’s delivery channel to expand significantly and allow more customers to enjoy their favourite menu items delivered to their door.
Caffè Nero first launched a delivery option to customers in April 2020 in response to the pandemic and its popularity has grown significantly over the last two years. Sales from delivery for the first half of its current financial year June-December 2021 were up 81% year compared to the same period the previous year, and the partnership with Just Eat will greatly help Caffè Nero grow this channel further.
The partnership plans to roll out at pace, with over 400 stores available on Just Eat, by the end of May 2022. Customers will be able to choose from hot drinks, including Caffè Nero’s signature Classico blend, iced drinks, breakfast items, pastries, sandwiches and panini as well as sweet treats.
The new partnership with Just Eat is another significant step in expanding Caffè Nero’s ‘New Channels Strategy’, launched to create revenue outside its stores. These new channels include delivery, Coffee at Home via its own website and the wider retail partnerships with Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Amazon.
Andrew Kenny, managing director Just Eat UK, said: “Caffè Nero is a welcome addition to the Just Eat family and is one of the most highly regarded high street food brands in the UK. As people continue to work from home, we have seen increased demand for breakfast and lunch deliveries.”
“The reach and delivery capabilities from Just Eat, and the premium quality menu from Caffè Nero, means the partnership will provide customers with an excellent choice during these growing meal delivery occasions.”
Will Stratton-Morris, CEO Caffè Nero UK, commented: “Just Eat is a fantastic and exciting partnership for us and we’re delighted to be working with them. We have seen high demand from customers for our products away from our stores, and this partnership allows us to continue to expand those channels. Alongside our resumed new store opening programme, our new channels are a hugely important part of our growth strategy post pandemic. This partnership will allow us to meet the demands of our customers and reach a significant number of people in their own home.”
The partnership signals the continual commitment by Just Eat to offer customers the greatest choice, whatever they’re craving. Alongside Caffè Nero, Just Eat’s 18 million UK customers can also order from high street eateries such as The Breakfast Club and Coco Di Mama, as well as order groceries from Asda and Co-op Central England.
