Who ever had any doubts about the success of such a company? In today’s world where we have so little time to meet our daily needs someone brining your favorite food anywhere is a sure winner! That was Glovo’s destiny, the 1 billion dollar worth food App company.
Food App or Everything App?
Founded in Barcelona in 2015 by Oscar Pierre, Glovo enables customer to connect with local couriers for a quick meal. It is easy to use and unlike UberEats or Deliveroo it choses food from a wider range of possibilities.
It does not stop to food only, according to founder Oscar Pierre puts it, the app may soon meet customers overall needs. May it be laundry, medicines or many other tasks, Glovo might do it for you!
After raising a 150 million euros in its first four years, and being present in 21 cities it is an ever growing company. Today it counts about 1500 employees and is present in over 26 countries and 200 cities worldwide.
The food App is hungry for money
The title above sounds like a joke, but not quite. Glovo’s will of expanding is so intense it came up with a brand-new idea for more business. It rents new kitchens!
It has opened seven “dark kitchens” in Madrid, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Lima, Milan and Kiev. Once they have reached full capacity themselves, local restaurants can rent these “Cook Rooms” to produce even more takeaway grub for Glovo’s couriers to carry to customers hungry for more.
An amazing an ever-growing company, with a flexible mentality and always hungry for new options.
We will be keeping an eye on Glovo as we are all both curious and hungry for new updates!
Thanks for your time, hope you enjoyed the read.
