Just-Eat, the world’s largest online takeaway service, has bought London-based food delivery provider Urbanbite for an undisclosed sum. The deal become’s Just-Eat’s sixth acquisition in 2011, including a move into Brazil with RestauranteWeb and the purchase of Hungry Zone in India. This growth has been supported by a $48m round of venture capital funding in March, and the appointment of key personnel, including Ask.com’s chief product officer Daniel Read to the same role at Just-Eat. Urbanbite, founded in 2000, handles 15,000 orders a month, with 60% of its business from major corporations; it has a function allowing employees to order dinner online at their company’s expense. Just-Eat, which was launched in Denmark in 2001, is based in London and now operates in 16 countries. Currently 20,000 restaurants globally are signed up to the site. It delivers 100,000 meals a day and has received more than 30m orders since the site launched. The deal will see Urbanbite founder Ben Carmona remain with the company in a "key leadership role". David Buttress, UK managing director for Just-Eat, said: “The corporate market is one of the fastest growing sectors in the industry, and this acquisition not only further consolidates our position as the UK’s leading online takeaway provider, but helps us establish a strong grasp on the key London and corporate markets. “As an industry leader we are always looking for opportunities to grow and develop as a business, and with Urbanbite becoming part of the Just-Eat family we will have access to the knowledge Ben and his team have built up over the last few years.”
