Northampton's takeout habits show they can't get enough chicken on a Friday night.

The takeaway delivery company has released its annual analysis of what Northampton's residents are ordering and when they want it.

Additionally, Friday at 9:22 pm is the most popular time for Northampton locals to order takeout, compared to Saturday nights at 7.28 pm from last year.

Deliveroo has released the data in line with its third birthday in the town, and claims it has over 70 deliverers in the town and has signed up more than 100 restaurants for its service.

Harison Foster, regional director of Deliveroo said: “Our whole team here at Deliveroo are delighted that our rapid growth in Northampton 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.
