With this acquisition, Just-Eat is now able to offer online consumers access to over 1,000 delivery restaurants across the country and justifying their claim to be “Canada’s largest and fastest growing online food ordering service”.
GrubCanada was launched in 2008 by young entrepreneurs Howard Migdal and Ross Lipson. The company was recently highlighted on CBC’s Dragons Den where they accepted an offer of $200k for 50% of the company from Brett Wilson. Typical of many deals stuck on the Den, it was never completed.
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 in 2011. Just-Eat Canada acquired Vancouver based YummyWeb.com in April.
