Aldi launches pizza delivery service

Aldi has launched a delivery service to coincide with the launch of a new takeaway pizza menu.

The supermarket said that pizzas ordered through the service are around 80 per cent cheaper than pizzas ordered from other pizza delivery firms.

Aldi said that customers will be able to pre-order pizzas in certain time slots via its website in the student cities of Manchester, Cardiff and Edinburgh. Customers will not be charged a delivery fee, the supermarket said.

“With prices of takeaways soaring, we’re excited to be able to offer shoppers delicious pizzas at a fraction of the price of expensive high-street chains,” said Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK.

“The quality ingredients and affordable price of the Ultimate Takeaway range will no doubt change people’s idea of the supermarket pizza. Better yet, we’re thrilled to be able to deliver this product hot to shoppers’ doors and truly treat our customers to the full takeaway experience.”

Aldi recently announced that it intends to open around 500 new stores in the UK, with 20 of these opening by the end of the year.

Aldi said that around two thirds of Brits shop in its stores, suggesting that the new locations will meet the growing demand as customers switch to Aldi.
