Just Eat Takeaway.com completes Grubhub acquisition
The enlarged group is now built around the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Germany.
Just Eat Takeaway.com has completed its acquisition of U.S.-based Grubhub, the companies said, effectively creating a food delivery platform that spans the Atlantic.
Grubhub founder Matt Maloney's appointment to the Just Eat Takeaway.com management board, and the appointments of Lloyd Frink and David Fisher to the Just Eat Takeaway.com supervisory board, will become effective shortly after completion, they added.
"I have always believed that the combination of Takeaway.com, Just Eat and Grubhub is a winning combination. The new company is the market leader in Europe, Canada and Australia, with very strong positions in the most important markets in the United States. It is humbling to run such a company after our start in Holland more than twenty years ago. We welcome Matt and his team to this great company,” said Jitse Groen, CEO and founder of Just Eat Takeaway.com.
“Our companies share an unwavering focus on supporting restaurants and our communities around the world. Together we will continue to innovate and break new ground in our industry as we each have separately for the past 20 years,” Maloney added.
