In 2000 student Jitse Groen founded and launched one of the world’s first online food delivery marketplaces, Thuisbezorgd.nl. Within the last 17 years, we made it from a tiny little student room into a billion dollar company: Takeaway.com. As the leading online food delivery marketplace in Europe, we currently connect millions of consumers and tens of thousands of restaurants in 9 European countries and Vietnam.

With over 900 hardworking international employees, spread across 5 offices in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Poland and Vietnam, we are planning to keep on growing with one goal in mind: “become the most beloved food ordering brand in Europe”.

It is not without good reason that every month 25 new employees are hired. The market we’re operating in changes rapidly and is still growing, the potential is nowhere near yet exploited. As we like doing everything ourselves we have a lot of in-house expertise.
