Just Eat, the leading online food delivery platform in Spain, launches its home delivery of grocery convenience products, thus expanding its range of services to its nearly 3 million active users in the country. Through collaborations with various partners, Just Eat Spain offers consumers the possibility to purchase a wide range of fresh ingredients, hygiene and cleaning products, a service that is increasingly in demand among Spaniards.
Just Eat has reached an agreement with Gorillas in Spain, which includes 14 stores in the cities of Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Alicante in this first phase, a number that will increase rapidly. This collaboration will guarantee quality and efficiency in deliveries. Just Eat users who order through the platform, will receive their orders from Gorillas delivery drivers.
Just Eat will also offer fresh products through municipal markets. The platform features five of the main food markets in the city of Madrid, including Mercado de Chamberí, Mercado de la Paz, Mercado Barceló, Mercado de Prosperidad and Mercado de Las Águilas.
This entry of Madrid markets has been managed through Mercado 47, a platform led by Hermeneus World and specialized in the digitization of municipal markets and local commerce, which contemplates the incorporation of markets and commercial galleries throughout the country to Just Eat in the near future.
Just Eat also incorporates into its grocery convenience business the offer of more than 250 small stores in Madrid and Barcelona, with a wide variety of gourmet products and traditional grocery stores, in order to facilitate the daily lives of consumers through home delivery. This service will be extended throughout Spain in the upcoming months to complement the catering and food offer in more than 2,500 municipalities where the app currently operates.
Just Eat is the leading online food delivery platform in Spain, covering 95% of the national territory. We want to take advantage of this experience and our network of delivery drivers to expand the offer we provide to our users with the delivery of food and convenience products, with the quality that characterizes us. This new service also allows us to expand our digitizing role, this time supporting the local commerce sector, as we have already been doing with the Spanish catering sectorPatrik Bergareche, General Manager of Just Eat in Spain
