New figures released by food delivery firm Deliveroo have shed a light on the habits of users across Southend. 

The firm has revealed Saturday is the night most people prefer to stay home with a takeaway, while Turkish cuisine is certainly a popular choice.

Deliveroo, which is celebrating its third anniversary in Southend, also says more than 60 per cent of its Southend takeaways are independent. 

What it shows

New data from Deliveroo reveals Saturday at 7:47pm is the most popular time for Southend users to order Deliveroo. Further data has shown locals love Turkish food the most, followed by American and British.

Most popular dishes:

1. Large Chicken Kebab from Broadway Grill

2. Henry Cheese Burger from Henry Burgers

3. Boneless Banquet from KFC

4. The Wrap from Pepe's Piri Piri

5. Cookie Dough Utopia with Milk Chocolate from Creams

Since its launch in the town three years ago, more than 110 restaurants have signed up to the platform and best guesses suggest more than 60 jobs have been created by the firm. 

Harison Foster, Regional Director of Deliveroo said: “Our whole team here at Deliveroo are delighted that our rapid growth in Southend over the past three years means that customers have more choice, restaurants are able to increase their revenue, and riders have opportunity to choose well-paid, flexible work.”
