Just Eat delivers 100 millionth UK order
Just Eat, the world’s leading online takeaway platform, is today celebrating its 100 millionth UK order. The order was placed at Bits N Pizza in Heywood, near Manchester, at 6.05pm. Bits N Pizza received a £1,000 cash prize from Just Eat, delivered in person by UK MD Graham Corfield. The customer who placed the order 100 millionth order won a year’s worth of takeaway.
David Buttress, Just Eat CEO, said:
"Reaching the 100 millionth order milestone in the UK is fantastic – we couldn’t have done it without our incredible teams and restaurant partners. I’m so proud to see the progress Just Eat has made since I first joined eight years ago. I remember renting our first UK office, screwing the desks and chairs together, and then signing up our first restaurant, Super Pizza. This is a really great day."
Graham Corfield, Just Eat's UK MD, added:
"I'd like to congratulate Bits N Pizza for processing the 100 millionth order and winning the cash prize. It’s a great cause for celebration for Just Eat too – 100 million orders is enough curry to fill over 500 Wembley stadiums or enough pizza boxes to go around the world! We also hope that the lucky customer who made the winning order enjoys their year-long supply of free takeaway, whatever their preferred dish.”
