DELIVEROO wants to open a new takeaway kitchen facility in Glasgow. 

Plans submitted to Glasgow city council would see the online delivery giant open a facility in the city's Tradeston. 

In a statement sent to city planners, the firm said it would like to take over a vacant building in Scotland Street, near West Street Subway station.

The statement outlined its plans for restaurants to operate kitchen spaces in the building, which would be available only to delivery customers. 

It's said the model would allow firms to set up shop "without up-front costs or risks of setting up and managing their own physical premises".

The statement added: "Deliveroo does not charge partners a rent to occupy a kitchen pod at the site. Instead, Deliveroo will take a commission against all orders made via the app. There is therefore zero upfront cost for partners to move into the site – all they are required to do is source chefs and ingredients."

The tech giant claimed around 60 jobs could be created if the plans went ahead. 

Glasgow city council is yet to make the decision on the plans.
