Newcastle food delivery firm hungry for national growth with move to larger premises

A North East food delivery service on a mission to rival the likes of Just Eat has expanded into larger premises following increased demand.

The FoodHouse has opened a new 1300 sq ft office at the redeveloped Baker’s Yard in Gosforth in Newcastle.

Run entrepreneurs and web designers David Duff and Roger Byrne, The FoodHouse has been operating for over two and a half years, specialising in digital food and drink delivery.

The firm, which currently employs nine staff, has plans to grow its team as well as expanding its presence beyond the region following its move to Baker’s Yard.

David Duff, co-owner of The FoodHouse, commented: “The business has undergone significant growth this year and we knew we needed new premises to facilitate the rapid expansion.

“Indeed, we are lucky to be in one of the sectors that has managed to continue to flourish throughout the pandemic as the number of people ordering food directly to their homes has increased.

“Our business model is geared around giving independent businesses a platform through which to market their offer in a cost-effective way and the team are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead to continue our growth.”

The creative business hub located on the site of the original Greggs Bakery, and is owned and managed by Newcastle property company Adderstone Group.

Charlie Harkness, commercial estates surveyor at Adderstone Group added: “The FoodHouse has such a great business model, providing a fair, cost effective solution for their clients and consumers.

“We’re delighted we could accommodate them in one of the last few suites at Baker’s Yard. We wish David, Roger and their growing team the best of luck in their new home.”
