Just Eat hits milestone 500m UK orders

Just Eat has today announced that it has achieved its 500 millionth UK order.

This significant landmark demonstrates Just Eat’s continued growth and performance in the UK market and reinforces its position as the leading online food delivery app in the UK.

The 500 millionth order comes as Just Eat continues to build its world class marketplace while rolling out targeted delivery services across the UK to create a unique hybrid service that matches demand with delivery capacity. This will help Just Eat to increase its overall customer base in the UK and serve even more brilliant food moments.

The achievement reflects the fact that food delivery is rapidly becoming the norm. Since processing its first order in April 2006, Just Eat has pioneered the sector and grown to over 30,000 restaurant partners nationwide serving more than 100 cuisines.

Having taken eight years to achieve 100 million orders, Just Eat has reached 500 million orders just 10 months after hitting 400 million, using its technology to provide excellent service and benefits to customers and restaurants alike. This equates to four orders per second over the past 10 months.

The milestone highlights that Just Eat is strongly positioned to capitalise on the significant £83bn-plus market opportunity in food delivery in the markets where it operates, with the UK an important part of its international network offering customers across 13 countries the widest possible choice to enjoy their favourite takeaway experience.

Graham Corfield, UK Managing Director of Just Eat, said, “Reaching the half a billion order milestone in the UK is a massive achievement for this business. It’s testament to our commitment to be the food app that offers whatever you’re craving - from your local independent Chinese or Indian takeaway to ordering in from much-loved branded restaurants such as KFC and Burger King.

'Our rapid growth is also a result of the true partnership we’ve forged with our restaurant partners, supporting them to ensure these high street heroes thrive. As online food delivery rapidly becomes the norm, Just Eat is well positioned to continue championing all the restaurants we work with and delivering for the nation.”
