Just Eat has achieved its 500 millionth UK order - the equivalent to four orders per second over the past 10 months.
This significant landmark demonstrates Just Eat’s continued growth and performance in the UK market and reflects the fact that food delivery is rapidly becoming the norm.
The online food delivery site, which processed its first order in April 2006, has reached 500 million orders just 10 months after hitting 400 million. It puts its success down to excellent service and added benefits it offers customers and restaurants alike.
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.”
Just Eat’s 500 millionth order was made by mum of two, Jane Harvey, who placed an order for a pizza from Soprano’s Pizza on Boggart Hill Drive in Leeds. Just Eat surprised the lucky customer with a flight to Italy - paying homage to the country’s origin of the cuisine.
Just Eat has over 30,000 restaurant partners nationwide serving more than 100 cuisines.
