FreshMex triumphs at Deliveroo’s UK Restaurant Awards!
FreshMex wins “Pop-Up to Prime Time” award at Deliveroo’s inaugural awards show at Shoreditch Town Hall (London) after receiving the most votes amongst customers to see off five other shortlisted restaurants from London.
The awards ceremony was a celebration of British culinary talent, with family-run independents and high street favourites being recognised for their achievements. The range of award categories, from Best Italian and Best Family Restaurant to Most Innovative Dish and Best Vegan Offering, reflected both traditional tastes and the latest cuisine on offer in the UK restaurant industry. Over 70,000 votes were cast by Brits over the course of the competition, which saw more than 400 restaurants whittled down to 19 winners.
FreshMex will receive business support from Deliveroo and be part of a marketing campaign worth up to £30,000 to showcase the very best of British restaurants.
Robbie Moult, Director of FreshMex said:
‘It’s fantastic to win this award, and means that much more as it was voted for by our customers. There were so many great restaurants up for awards, and it’s really encouraging to see such a range of talented chefs and varied cuisines on show, I’m so proud of the team!’
Deliveroo founder and CEO Will Shu said:
‘I’m really proud that Deliveroo works with over 20,000 of the UK’s best local restaurants, bringing amazing meals straight to people’s front doors. We understand the hard work, dedication, incredible skill and creativity that goes into making a restaurant successful and so it is an honour for us to be celebrating Britain’s best loved restaurants.’
