Head­quar­tered in Ams­ter­dam, the com­pa­ny was cre­at­ed in Jan­u­ary 2020 by bring­ing togeth­er two of the world’s most suc­cess­ful food deliv­ery firms: Take​away​.com (found­ed in 2000 in The Nether­lands) and Just Eat (found­ed in 2001 in Denmark).

Our mar­ket­place benefits 

As an online food deliv­ery mar­ket­place, Just Eat Take​away​.com facil­i­tates the online order­ing, pay­ment and occa­sion­al­ly, ful­fil­ment of orders. We utilise a hybrid mod­el which builds on our mar­ket­place her­itage (where restau­rants do their own deliv­ery) with logis­tics capa­bil­i­ty (for select restau­rants with­out their own deliv­ery capa­bil­i­ties). This mod­el ensures con­sumers have the widest pos­si­ble vari­ety of restau­rants to order from.

Con­sumers can order via our mobile appli­ca­tions and our web­site. We derive our rev­enue prin­ci­pal­ly from the com­mis­sions we charge restau­rants based on the Gross Trans­ac­tion Val­ue (GTV) of the food ordered through our mar­ket­place and, to a less­er extent, from oth­er ser­vices such as online pay­ment ser­vices, sales of mer­chan­dise and pack­ag­ing, and pro­mot­ed place­ment. In addi­tion, we also derive rev­enue from deliv­ery fees charged to con­sumers on orders for which Just Eat Take​away​.com is respon­si­ble for the Delivery.
