'Zoom! 1hr Delivery' has had a "meteoric expansion" across the UK in the last year and has now launched its sub one-hour delivery service in Biggleswade

Co-op has chosen the delivery business as its logistics partner in the Biggleswade area for its mass roll-out of food delivery across rural regions. Customers using the service will receive their groceries within two hours of placing their order.

Thanks to this contract, Zoom! 1hr Delivery has also been able to roll out its own on-demand delivery service to food outlets in the local area including restaurants, fast food chains and

independent eateries.

A Zoom! 1hr Delivery spokeswoman said: "Customers can order from their favourite food businesses via the Zoom 1hr app for delivery within an eight-mile radius in less than an hour.

"To celebrate the service’s launch in the area, Zoom! 1hr Delivery are running a number of promotions for customers to enter through their social media pages in the coming weeks. There

is a dedicated Facebook page for the area titled ‘Zoom 1hr Delivery – Biggleswade.’"

Dave Hamlet, co-founder and CEO of Zoom! 1hr Delivery, told the Chronicle: "Launching in Biggleswade is a key milestone for us on our mission to becoming the UK’s hyper local, last mile delivery service.

“Biggleswade has a brilliant selection of food businesses and restaurants. We feel it’s important to support them during this challenging time as well as being able to service communities in

more rural locations that wouldn’t have had access to this type of delivery service before now.

“It is also fantastic to deliver on behalf of Co-op in the Biggleswade area, and we are proud to have an average delivery time for Co-op customers of just 20 minutes from ordering, which is an exceptional service.

“We hope Biggleswade’s residents enjoy our fast delivery of groceries, fine cuisine, fast food, and drinks, whilst keeping safe at home. All they need to do is download our app or head to

www.zoom-food.co.uk to order!”

The spokeswoman continued: "Zoom! 1hr Delivery recognise their drivers’ ‘worker’ status and offer them paid holiday and other benefits required by current law, in a pointed move to rise above competitors in the gig economy who have been embroiled in addressing issues of employment law recently. Zoom 1hr were one of the first delivery services in the UK to offer this to their drivers."
