More about Just Eat Takeaway.com
Headquartered in Amsterdam, the company was created in January 2020 by bringing together two of the world’s most successful food delivery firms: Takeaway.com (founded in 2000 in the Netherlands) and Just Eat (founded in 2001 in Denmark). Both companies were started by ambitious entrepreneurs who grew their businesses to be the number one food delivery players in their home markets and many others around the world. Today, Just Eat Takeaway.com is the leading global online food delivery marketplace outside China.
Joining forces with Grubhub
Just Eat Takeaway.com's mission has consistently been focused on becoming the best food delivery company on the planet. Since its founding in 2000, Takeaway.com has chosen only to enter into markets in which it believes it can become a leader and be profitable. In fact, it is one of the rare examples of a profitable food delivery platform. The profits in the Netherlands helped secure a leadership position in Germany and other Continental European countries. The growth and profitability of the Takeaway.com businesses eventually allowed it to merge with Just Eat, another profitable European food delivery business. As a result, Just Eat Takeaway.com has leading positions in three of the world's four largest profit pools for food delivery: the U.K., Germany and the Netherlands.
Just Eat Takeaway.com management believes that Grubhub is the best food delivery company in the U.S. and it is the only one which is culturally similar to Just Eat Takeaway.com. It has its origins in marketplace, and unlike most other food delivery companies, it has consistently been EBITDA positive. Grubhub as part of Just Eat Takeaway.com will become an even stronger business. Just Eat Takeaway.com owns SkipTheDishes, the clear leader in Canada. By building a North American leadership position, Just Eat Takeaway.com will be able to further strengthen both the Canadian and U.S. businesses. Just Eat Takeaway.com will prioritise sustainable growth over profits, as this has been a major driver of its strategy and success in Europe. Grubhub has leading positions in a number of large U.S. cities, including New York. Just Eat Takeaway.com intends to invest in expanding these leading positions.
