Food delivery service Thuisbezorgd.nl has bought Dutch and Belgian competitors Just Eat for €22.5m, the Financieele Dagblad said on Tuesday.
The acquisition creates the biggest restaurant home delivery service in the Netherlands and Belgium, Thuisbezorgd told the paper. ‘This is a “winner takes most” market, so we are going for market leadership,’ Joris Wilton of parent company Takeaway.com said.
Takeaway.com is paying for the acquisition in cash.
Thuisbezorgd.nl was set up in 2000 by Jitse Groen and now operates in 10 countries, including Pizza.be in Belgium and Lieferando.de in Germany. In total, some 30,000 restaurants are affiliated to its services.
