With the additional capital, the Dutch company behind the food ordering service aims to continue its international expansion, after starting local websites in a number of European countries (including Belgium, Austria, the UK and Germany).
Takeaway.com basically lets hungry people order food from vetted restaurants online – from websites like Pizza.co.uk and Thuisbezorgd.nl or from mobile apps (iPhone and Android).
So far, the company has partnered with over 9,000 restaurants and claims to generate over 100 million euros in annual order revenues (serving over 3 million customers).
