Food delivery from the premium restaurants sector – 2 very fresh news stories

by Will Corry on April 23, 2015

1  The premium take-out space in Europe continues to heat up as a number of startups target parts of the market that Just Eat, Foodpanda and Delivery Hero aren’t yet catering for. Namely, food delivery from premium restaurants that don’t traditionally offer a take-out and delivery service.

The best funded is the U.K.’s Deliveroo, which earlier this year raised a $25 million Series B round led by Accel Partners — money it pegged for European expansion. Today the London-headquartered startup is making good on that promise, launching the service in Paris andBerlin, following a quiet launch in Dublin earlier this week.

2  JUST EAT today announces the appointment of Barnaby Dawe as Chief Marketing Officer.

Barnaby brings with him a wealth of experience, having spent over 15 years leading the marketing strategies for some of the UK’s most exciting and iconic brands, including Sky, Channel 4, Heart FM, The Sun and The Times newspapers. Prior to JUST EAT, Barnaby was Chief Marketing Officer at HarperCollins Publishers and has been consulting a range of retail and e-commerce brands to drive growth through marketing, brand and digital strategies.
