But that didn't stop some homeowners and business owners telling the BBC this month that the lycra-clad groups, typically made up of males in their twenties and thirties, are becoming a bit of a nuisance.Stephen Foster, a bookseller from Chiswick, told the BBC that he calls the gathering close to his shop "the Deliveroost.

We're a retail business and what you want is people to feel comfortable walking past your shop and going into it.

Otherwise that customer gets exceptionally upset about that inability to order and the restaurant likewise if they cook food and there isn t a driver to pick it up.As order volumes get much larger, they become more predictable and less volatile, allowing us to staff drivers at more of an exact level vs. that order volume.

We work with our consumer base themselves to give us feedback on where they see things like that.

They represent our brand, they go into the restaurants.

Its really important they re the right type of person so consequently, while there may have been an article about riders congregating together, you ll see in the article there is nothing that stipulates they have done anything wrong, which is why it s quite interesting that it was a BBC News at 10 article.We re going to act on it and take it seriously but it s going to happen, it s human nature.NOW WATCH: Bumble founder: Men should stop putting these 4 things in their profilesLoading video...
