Just Eat Passes One Billion UK Orders
Online delivery platform Just Eat passed the one billion milestone over the summer and has revealed that orders were up 51% in the past three years.
In the third quarter of 2021, Just Eat processed 266 million orders, representing a 25% increase compared with the same period of 2020, helping the UK branch of the platform to reach the one billion orders milestone.
The gross value of sales hit an impressive €6.8 billion, up 23% year-on-year with Just Eat’s UK orders experiencing the sharpest growth as it accounted for €1.6 billion of takings in only three months.
In a statement, Jitse Groen, the chief executive of Just Eat, said: “with most of the world returning to pre-pandemic life, our growth in the third quarter of 2021 has remained strong. We look forward to updating the market on the exciting opportunities for long-term growth across our business during our Capital Markets Day on 21 October.”
Although the UK market has experienced impressive growth, the United States is still the company’s largest market and has contributed €6.1 billion in revenues this year to date.
