Internet success moves head office to United Kingdom

After only 2 months operating in the UK the award winning concept is already a success and will have more than 1000 restaurants online in the next 12 months. connecting Consumers and restaurants with GPRS technology.

Order your Pizza, Indian, Burger, Sandwich or Sushi etc. via the internet instead of the phone – it’s Easier, quicker and gives a great view of what’s available where you live. The concept sounds really simple but the technology behind it is very complex. After 7 years of innovation and ‘know-how’ in Scandinavia the service has arrived in the UK. Just-eat install a box (Just-Connect Box) in the restaurant, when the consumer makes an order to the individual restaurants on the Just-eat website it will instantly send a signal to the box via GPRS and the restaurant will then either say yes, no or change the delivery or takeaway time within 90 sec. The consumer then receives a message on screen and a receipt confirming delivery. The technology behind this is clearly patent pending.

It all started with 3 young entrepreneurs who worked 80 hours a week and believed in the concept, the road to success was tremendously hard with many barriers. The idea maker and CEO Jesper Buch says “We have changed Scandinavia’s way of ordering fast food and added value to both consumers and restaurants because they don’t have to use the phone and this saves significant amounts of time and money. The most satisfying fact is that we have revolutionized a new and more convenient way of ordering to a whole nation to the benefit of everyone."
