About us

Takeaway.com is one of the leading food-order sites in the world. It all began at a party in 2000, when Jitse Groen, who was still a student at the time, came up with the idea for a delivery service after he discovered that he could not use the Internet to order food. He registered the domain name 'Thuisbezorgd.nl' the very next day. Today, we are the market leader in the Netherlands, with more than one million orders each month. Jitse Groen is still the company's majority shareholder and CEO. Our ambitions extend beyond the Netherlands, which is why we also operate in Belgium, Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, France, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Portugal and Vietnam.

Takeaway.com is a dynamic and casual company that is still growing. Each day, dozens of changes occur that call for an agile response. This means quickly changing gears between the various offices and departments. A great deal of effort is made every day not only to maintain our position in the various countries, but also to reinforce it. In addition to working hard, we also know the importance of socialising, having a laugh and sharing a drink. Would you like to be a part of the Takeaway.com team? Are you ambitious and do you have the guts to share your ideas? Have a look at our current vacancies.

What do we do?

As an intermediary between the consumer and delivery restaurant we ensure that online food ordering is open to everyone: both you, the customer, and the delivery restaurant. Our mission is to provide you with the best food ordering experience and our daily efforts strive to do so. By keeping our platform simple, our customers can order a delicious meal in a few clicks. Our partner restaurants, on the other hand, enjoy the ease of our service while increasing their orders. Additionally, partner restaurants can also benefit of the marketing efforts of Takeaway.com such as branded merchandise, TV ads, radio spots, press attention and various ads through online channels.
