Just-Eat Canada acquires GrubCanada
By Canadian PizzaNews
October 25, 2011, Toronto – Online food ordering service Just-Eat Canada Inc. has acquired GrubCanada Inc.
With this acquisition, Just-Eat will be able to offer online consumers access to over 1,000 delivery restaurants across the country, giving busy Canadians more options than ever for quick delivery and takeout meals.
"Our acquisition of GrubCanada.com is an exciting step in strengthening our leadership as Canada's best, most convenient and reliable online food ordering service for consumers to order food over the Internet and by mobile phone," said David Power, managing director of Just-Eat.ca. "This deal adds to an exciting month for Just-Eat.ca, having just launched in Quebec with a bilingual website."
The acquisition of GrubCanada.com adds over 200 new neighbourhood restaurants in Ontario and British Columbia to Just-Eat Canada and is its second acquisition this year. Just-Eat Canada acquired Vancouver based YummyWeb.com in April.
GrubCanada.com, one of Canada's original online food ordering services, was launched in 2008 by young entrepreneurs Howard Migdal and Ross Lipson. The company was recently highlighted on the hit Canadian television show, CBC's Dragon's Den in which the pair accepted an offer of $200,000 for 50 per cent of the company from "dragon" Brett Wilson (the deal was never completed).
