A burrito order from Mexican Restaurant Speedy Amigos in Cardiff has hit its 200m UK order mark this week on JUST EAT.
The Mexican restaurant, owned by Jinanne Al-ubaidi, offers “only the freshest ingredients to create lovingly prepared dishes, for a truly authentic Mexican experience.”
The takeaway restaurant has been awarded with a cheque of £2,000 from JUST EAT in celebration of the milestone.
Jinanne Al-ubaidi said: “Our business is built on the best quality and hard work. It is great to see this has paid off, and customers are continuing to enjoy our Mexican favourites.”
“We offer delicious Mexican meals that are made with love, which is why our customers keep coming back.”
The amount shows how Britain’s love affair with the takeaway has grown ever stronger over the years. It took the UK’s largest online takeaway platform almost nine years to reach the 100m order in November 2014, and just a further 18 months to hit the 200m mark.
The nation’s appetite for takeaway shows no sign of slowing – last weekend alone, JUST EAT for the first time processed more than one million orders in a weekend from food-loving customers, with the tech company predicting that it expects to pass the 300m order milestone in the next year.
Graham Corfield, JUST EAT’s UK Managing Director, said: “It’s astounding to see the growth in the number of orders taken by takeaways in the last 10 years. Speedy Amigos has aided us in reaching a major milestone in the country’s appetite for ordering takeaway online.”
