    Berlin, June 24 2016 — Just three months after expanding to over 10 new cities, foodora announces further city expansions and posts 100x growth versus May 2015.

    Only three months after expanding into more than 10 new cities, the Berlin-based company that offers fast delivery from quality restaurants across ten countries worldwide and is part of the Delivery Hero group announces it plans to launch more cities in Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and France in the next 60 days.

    “We are now reaching €150 million in annualized transaction volume after an initial period of honing the business model and learning what matters to customers, partners and investors. This is 100 times our size just one year ago, and our continued expansion puts us even closer to our long-term vision of a service that truly changes the way food delivery is experienced,” said Rodrigo Sampaio, co-CEO of foodora.

    “We delivered over 4 million meals in the last twelve months, becoming a relevant partner to thousands of restaurants, most of which had never delivered before. foodora combines an exceptional service level – most of our orders are delivered in less than 35 minutes – with the highest logistics productivity in the industry. This has earned us increased support from Delivery Hero, and now allows us to focus on a next wave of innovations to benefit our customers, the riders who support us and our partner restaurants,” adds Eduardo Goes, who co-leads foodora.

    During the last 12 months, foodora doubled its order volume every two months, becoming the leading player not only in its home country Germany but also in the nine other nations in which it operates. Its signature pink bikes can now be seen in the streets of over 30 cities across Europe, Canada and Australia. “foodora has demonstrated outstanding customer loyalty, driven by its distinctive brand, superior service level and curated selection of restaurants,” says Niklas Östberg, CEO of Delivery Hero. “It has developed a proprietary ecosystem of solutions for last-mile logistics that is optimized for food delivery, providing it with a sustainable competitive advantage and stronger financial performance. We are excited about its development and are increasing investment to expand and secure its market leadership,” complements Östberg.

    Two Michelin Star Restaurant Signed by foodora

    Berlin, April 22 2016 — foodora, the delivery service for popular local restaurants, today announced its partnership with &samhoud places, making the Amsterdam restaurant the first two Michelin star-winner to offer delivery. “We’re extremely honoured that a restaurant at this level would trust us with their food and we are excited to be bringing it […]

    Berlin, April 22 2016 — foodora, the delivery service for popular local restaurants, today announced its partnership with &samhoud places, making the Amsterdam restaurant the first two Michelin star-winner to offer delivery.

    “We’re extremely honoured that a restaurant at this level would trust us with their food and we are excited to be bringing it to the homes of food-lovers of Amsterdam,” said Julian Dames, Chief Marketing Officer and Co-Founder at foodora.

    Indeed, that is the trend evidenced by the past few years, as food delivery has evolved from greasy fast-food to more and more sophisticated offerings, culminating in this latest partnership.

    “The perception of food delivery is completely changing, and I think our partnership with &samhoud places is powerful evidence of that,” said Dames.

    “Of course a restaurant doesn’t need a Michelin star to be amazing. It could be a food-cart on the side of the road. But this just shows how much room there is for food-lovers and restaurants to connect in new ways that we had never imagined before.”

    foodora uses insulated delivery containers and a routing algorithm to ensure that food arrives efficiently and in a way that it looks and tastes just as if it has come from the kitchen. This is important when delivering the carefully-crafted dishes on &samhoud places’ menu, such as Miral duck in a lacquer of sake, soy and apricot, and black risotto with zucchini, eggplant, spring onions and spinach.

    &samhoud places is the brainchild of chef Moshik Roth, who has previous experience at the three Michelin-starred De Librije, also in the Netherlands. He opened the restaurant in 2012 and it won two Michelin stars that year.

    “It’s a bit terrifying for a chef to relinquish control of presentation,” said Roth. “But we like a challenge. This is a unique opportunity to make Michelin-level dining more accessible. I love the idea of people enjoying my cooking on their own tables with their own plates.”

    Suppertime becomes foodora to bring food to hungry foodies – at any time

    Sydney – March 8th, 2016 – Australia’s premium food delivery service, Suppertime, is rebranding to foodora today. The rebrand marks improved technology for both customers and restaurants, in addition to the introduction of extended delivery hours. In late 2015 Suppertime joined the foodora group, the fastest-growing food delivery company in the world and has since […]

    Sydney – March 8th, 2016 – Australia’s premium food delivery service, Suppertime, is rebranding to foodora today. The rebrand marks improved technology for both customers and restaurants, in addition to the introduction of extended delivery hours.

    In late 2015 Suppertime joined the foodora group, the fastest-growing food delivery company in the world and has since increased its orders tenfold. With the name-change the company is now incorporated into a global brand active in over 10 countries in 4 continents.

    Started over ten years ago, Suppertime has been a key player in the Australian food delivery scene, working with only the very best restaurants including Chur Burger, Mamak, Gelato Messina, Hanoi Hannah and Golden Century to bring customers premium restaurant food, delivered to their door in 30 minutes. Today, it boasts a network of 700 handpicked partners in Sydney and Melbourne and is adding more to its platform weekly.

    As the Suppertime service grew more popular, the interest in deliveries not just at supper time, but throughout the day increased significantly. The new name foodora (meaning food now) is therefore more fitting for the urban service bringing food to you, wherever you want it, whenever you need it throughout the day.

    Along with the rebrand, foodora is stretching weekend delivery times to 10am – 10pm, introducing the most important meal of the weekend – a late, lazy breakfast. Now you can satisfy those Saturday morning cravings or do Sunday brunch straight from your couch. During the week, lunch, dinner and all your nibbles in between are catered for by foodora’s prompt weekday delivery (11am – 3pm, 5pm to 10pm).

    “We both share the same ethos to revolutionise the delivery experience. foodora brings improved technology to the Australian market, building on our existing infrastructure to make the delivery experience even better – a goal which has driven Suppertime since the very beginning,” said co-founder and CEO Toon Gyssels.

    While the brand becomes global, the company will still retain its Australian DNA. “Australians have a very special relationship to food, which empowers us to do delivery with a local touch”, said Gyssels. “While Suppertime becomes part of the foodora global brand, it will very much stay true to its Australian roots”.

    “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.”

    Toronto, January 18, 2016 – Hurrier, a rapidly expanding Canadian food delivery service, is rebranding to foodora, as of today. foodora, the world’s fastest growing food-delivery platform, acquired Hurrier last year. The rebrand marks the introduction of a new, flat delivery fee of  $3.50, one of the most competitive in the on demand delivery space. A new website and mobile app will also launch later this winter.

    foodora acquired Hurrier in July 2015 as part of its global expansion strategy. Hurrier’s restaurant partners, comprised of high-quality city favourites, combined with technology that streamlines and speeds up delivery and its blend of mostly bicycle couriers impressed the European company. The rebrand will signal the launch of even better customer-centric delivery experiences.

    “This rebrand is more than just a name. As foodora we’re giving our diners more choice and flexibility by introducing a flat delivery fee in this competitive space,” said David Albert, foodora Canada Managing Director. “Food is at the heart of everything we do. These changes and soon to launch expanded order channels are catering to our clients with a focus on quality local restaurants and expanded ordering options.”

    In addition to placing online orders through foodora.ca, a foodora mobile app will launch in March, giving customers more freedom to access their city’s best meals. foodora will maintain Hurrier’s impressive roster of more than 200 restaurant partners and is looking to add more throughout 2016. Toronto favourites the Drake Hotel, Playa Cabana and Fran’s Restaurant are debuting with delivery through foordora in early 2016. 

    2015 was a year of dramatic growth and change for the Canadian-built company that included being acquired by foodora and expanding to Montreal. In the last quarter of 2015, orders had increased tenfold while delivery processes and times were streamlined by nearly 40 percent. The Canadian company made a lasting impact on its new parent company and the unique Hurrier algorithm will be integrated into foodora’s operations in its international markets.

    “Hurrier’s algorithm quickly determines which rider to send on any given job,” said Julian Dames, Global CMO, foodora. “Hurrier’s expertise in delivering year-round in the cold Canadian climate has helped foodora gain a greater understanding of how to maintain operational excellence, even during the snowy months.”

    foodora continues its global expansion in the on-demand food delivery market, announcing its first launch in the Middle East

    Dubai, September 29, 2015 – ­ foodora, the Berlin-­based company that enables niche restaurants to offer take­away delivery is expanding to the United Arab Emirates. Founded in October 2014, the startup has set itself apart from traditional delivery services by working only with high­quality restaurants, such as Obica, Eat Greek or Accents by InterContinental.

    “The decision to launch in Dubai was an obvious one. The combination of the city’s iconic restaurants and the population’s high expectation towards convenience and quality make it the perfect city for foodora’s first venture in the Middle East”, says Alexander Kappes, the Vice President of foodora Middle East. “Our full­service solution allows restaurants to focus on one thing: cooking. We take the meal and bring it to the customer.”

    The first to offer this service in the UAE and with over 30 partner restaurants as of its launch and many more wanting to join. Restaurants enjoy access to a much larger customer base and increased revenues, without having to employ their own couriers.

    “Making great meals is one thing, but delivery is a whole new business. Now that we can offer this service our meals will reach even more people in Dubai” said Krzysztof Tatarek, manager of Obicà.

    All deliveries are done by motorcycle with help from an advanced algorithm to help couriers navigate the dense traffic of Dubai. To ensure the food maintains its high quality and arrives within an average of less than 35 minutes, orders are limited to a set delivery area.

    Since its launch, foodora became a leading player in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Dubai and Hong Kong, with acquisitions made in Canada (Hurrier), Australia (Suppertime) and Austria (Heimschmecker).

    The startup gained traction in its home market and began making plans to scale the business with support from German Internet platform Rocket Internet. Plans are to quickly expand the business globally.

    How does foodora work?

    On www.foodora.ae customers type in their building name and select from a range of restaurants. They can then choose their favorite dish, which is delivered by foodora drivers using custom bikes. Customers pay for their meals online with credit card or with cash on delivery.

    About foodora

    Our UAE team represents Dubai’s diverse culture with employees from Europe, Asia, the Americas and of course the Middle East. With a wealth of experience in the UAE and in e­commerce, they are united in their love of the UAE and almost equally as important: great food!

    foodora continues its global expansion in the market for food delivery, bringing high quality restaurants to living rooms and workplaces.

    Hong Kong, 29 September 2015foodora, the highly successful global startup has now arrived to Hong Kong. Since launching in Europe in October 2014 the online food startup has grown exponentially, expanding across Europe and now into Asia. The concept is surprisingly simple – consumers use the foodora app or website (www.foodora.hk) to order food from a restaurant of their choice and foodora delivers the food in 30 minutes. Consumers can order wherever they are, be it their homes, office, or on-the-go.

    The company has set itself apart from traditional delivery services by working with big names in the restaurant scene, including the likes of Dragon-i, Iberico, Check-In Taipei, The Boss and Social Place. Restaurants such as Little Bao will for the first time offer hungry Hong Kongers an alternative to waiting in a queue for superior eats.

    “Few realize Dragon-I has very talented chefs serving some of Hong Kong’s best Chinese and Japanese food. With foodora we can now extend the Dragon-I experience into homes and offices,” says Raymond Young, General Manager of Dragon-I.

    Behind the scenes, foodora’s proprietary logistics system determines the optimal route between restaurants and customers to help drivers navigate the dense traffic of Hong Kong. The company’s dedicated, uniformed and friendly delivery team ensures maximum food quality and transportation standards by not stacking orders and knowing their terrain extremely well. The newly launched foodora app sends updates along the order process, allowing customers to relax while they look forward to enjoying their meal in the comfort of their home or the convenience of their office.

    Mat Podesta, CEO of foodora Hong Kong, remarks: Hong Kong is one of the world’s great global cities and as such should have access to world-class food delivery services. foodora wants to introduce a new benchmark of reliability, speed, and quality, bringing Hong Kongers what other markets already enjoy.”

    With over 100 partner restaurants already, foodora Hong Kong is shaking up the online food delivery scene. Through its online platform, partnering restaurants enjoy access to a large and engaged customer base, leading to increased revenues without the need to employ their own couriers, or increase their restaurant seating capacity. Currently delivering to Central and Sheung Wan, foodora plans to expand their delivery area to TST, Wan Chai, and Causeway Bay with an expanded list of 400 restaurants by the end of 2015.

    New customers can receive HK$50 off their first order with code: HELLOHONGKONG.

    How does foodora work?

    Through www.foodora.hk or via the foodora app, consumers can enter their location, view a list of quality-only restaurants serving their neighborhood, and place an order in the comfort of their home, office or even while on-the-go.

    On-demand food delivery service foodora merges with Delivery Hero’s Urban Taste and breaks into the global market

    With fast-paced expansion, foodora comes to the forefront of the global food delivery market

    Berlin, 15 August 2015 – foodora, the Berlin-based company that offers delivery from quality restaurants, is merging with Delivery Hero’s similarly positioned Urban Taste to continue expanding across Europe, North America and Asia.

    Since its launch in October 2014, foodora became a leading player in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Dubai and Hong Kong, with acquisitions made in Canada (Hurrier), Australia (Suppertime) and Austria (Heimschmecker). With the merger, the foodora operations will be brought under Delivery Hero, enabling the company to benefit from the group’s scale and presence. The combined businesses of Urban Taste and foodora will operate under the foodora brand from now on, remaining independent from the other operations of Delivery Hero.

    Unlike traditional food delivery marketplaces, foodora only partners with selected restaurants and manages a dedicated delivery infrastructure. By using proprietary algorithms and assessing the availability of over 1,500 logistics network participants in real-time, the company identifies the closest driver, rider or walker for each order and coordinates the entire pick-up and delivery processes, allowing restaurants to focus on the preparation of the food.

    Combined with Urban Taste, foodora has over 2,000 restaurants signed up and is looking to double that in the course of the next months. “The success lies in how we approach online food delivery,” says Emanuel Pallua, COO of foodora. “Our on-demand service and the fact that we establish a real long-term relationship with our partner restaurants takes away from them the burden of hiring and managing their own drivers. With us, they can tap into the emerging online and mobile audiences without having to invest on technology or marketing, increasing their revenues and utilization of their existing assets without compromise on food quality.”

    Furthermore, according to Julian Dames, foodora’s CMO, the advantages to customers are also very appealing. “At foodora, customers can expect a consistent and locally-relevant value proposition in terms of food quality, variety and value, with a reliable and fast delivery service to back it up. After trying our service and experiencing our platform, most customers come back, which encourages us to continue in the direction we are.”

    With average delivery time of about 30 minutes and orders growing by an average of 20% every week in the last 6 months, foodora is already the fastest-growing enterprise in the sector globally. And in order to sustain its leadership and expand to more markets, Delivery Hero plans to invest heavily in the company. “We have a very long-term view for this segment and will do what it takes to make sure we are the preferred choice for restaurants and customers worldwide,” says Niklas Östberg, CEO of Delivery Hero.

    How does foodora work?

    Through the foodora website or via the new iOS and Android apps being rolled-out customers can select their postal code, view a curated list of restaurants serving their neighborhood, and place their order in the comfort of their home or office, paying online through foodora’s secure platform. The order is then carefully prepared by the restaurant, picked-up by the foodora logistics team and delivered to their doorstep in just about 30 minutes.
