High-end restaurant delivery service Supper shuts down

Supper, the high-end meal delivery service that worked with Michelin-starred restaurants, appears to have ceased trading.

A story on the @supperlondon Instagram page last week simply said: "Supper London (Wimpole 101) shutted down."

Phone calls to Supper's contact numbers for restaurants and clients went unanswered last week and the general manager of a restaurant that worked with the service told The Caterer Supper was no longer accepting new orders.

Supper was launched by former bond trader Peter Georgiou in 2015 and offered home delivery of dishes from high-end restaurants such as Nobu, Hakkasan and Zuma. Its riders were all employed by the app and drove specially designed bikes designed to keep food stable in temperature-controlled boxes.

In 2021, the business raised £2.4m from Growthdeck investors to fuel expansion. The following year an Evening Standard profile said Supper employed 55 staff at its headquarters, 150 drivers and turned over £10.5m a year.

According to Georgiou's LinkedIn page, he stopped working at Supper in June 2023.

Delivery apps saw a boom in demand during the pandemic but struggled to maintain growth as coronavirus restrictions eased.

However, larger apps such as Just Eat and Deliveroo have shifted to offering grocery deliveries alongside restaurant food to boost the value and frequency of orders.

Deliveroo said it expects its full-year earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), to be above its previous expectations of £60m-£80m.

Just Eat has forecast a 40% rise in its core profit this year, with EBITDA expected to reach £386m.

Supper could not be reached for comment.
