Food delivery firm Deliveroo has moved into a new global headquarters in London in 2017 as part of its transition from being a small startup into a more serious corporation. That evolution continued this week after it announced a $575 million funding round led by Amazon.
The 55,000 square foot office on Cannon Street in the City of London — a part of the city jammed with banks and law firms — was home to around 600 Deliveroo employees when it opened.

The office — which is partly funded with $475 million (£364 million) from investors — comes complete with an on-site gym, 27 meeting rooms named after the company’s favourite foods, and a shared rooftop overlooking the River Thames.
Dan Warne, Deliveroo’s UK and Ireland managing director, told Business Insider: “At our new office we’re creating one of London’s biggest tech hubs, which will continue to support and grow the British technology industry.”
