Berlin, February 19 2016 – foodora, the Berlin-based company that offers delivery from quality restaurants direct to your front door, today announces expansion to eleven new cities across Europe.
Throughout the last several months, foodora has nearly doubled its order volumes every month, becoming a leading player not only in Germany but also in Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Australia (the latter under the brand Suppertime).
The eleven new cities will launch in countries where foodora is already active, further cementing its foothold in Europe. The company’s signature pink bikes will start appearing on the streets of Gothenburg in Sweden, Tampere and Turku in Finland, and The Hague and Utrecht in the Netherlands.
Six cities will also be added in its home territory of Germany, namely Bonn, Nürnberg, Wiesbaden, Essen, Bremen, and Hannover. In doing so, foodora will reach a potential seven million new customers.
With the additional cities, foodora will be active in 30 cities across four continents. The company’s global network boasts over 4,000 riders delivering food from over 5,000 local restaurants directly to thousands of food lovers who can order via web or the company’s mobile apps.
“Our service caters to those who love good food and want it quickly,” says Julian Dames, CMO and Co-founder. “We make it convenient for them to order from places that never delivered before and where they might often have had to wait in line or fight for table reservations.”
Amid the growth, Dames emphasized that the focus remains on strengthening availability: “After phenomenal growth and customer response in our capital cities, we are finally bringing our service to more territories in our key markets.”
foodora was launched in Germany in October 2014, backed by Rocket Internet in April 2015 and merged with Delivery Hero in September 2015. The on-demand delivery service currently connects high-quality restaurants and foodies in over 10 countries and is changing the way food delivery is viewed and experienced globally.
How does foodora work
Through the foodora website or via the native iOS and Android apps, customers can enter a desired address and view a curated list of restaurants serving their neighborhood. Once they have found their meal of choice, they can place an order in the comfort of their home or office, paying online through foodora’s secure platform. The order is then carefully prepared by the partner restaurant, picked up by foodora’s environmentally friendly logistics team and delivered to the customer’s doorstep in about only 30 minutes.
