Thuisbezorgd.nl spreads its wings worldwide with the acquisition of the American Grubhub
Jitse Groen, CEO and founder of Just Eat Takeaway: “Matt Maloney from Grubhub and I are the two remaining veterans in this sector. We are both convinced that only companies with high-quality and profitable growth in our sector will survive. I am happy to create the largest home food delivery company in the world, except China. “
Matt Maloney, CEO and founder of Grubhub: “When Grubhub and Seamless were founded, the online takeaway industry didn’t exist in the US. My vision was to transform the delivery and pick-up ordering experience. Like so many other entrepreneurs, we started modestly – restaurant by restaurant in our Chicago neighborhood. Today Grubhub is a leader in North America. I have known Jitse Groen since 2007 and his story is very similar to mine. Combining our companies means that two pioneering startups have become a clear world leader. We share a focus on a hybrid model that places extra value on volume at independent restaurants and ensures profitable growth. “
