How Was Just Eat Takeaway Created?

Pizzas play an important role in the creation of Just Eat. Jitse Groen was hungry during a family party in the northern part of North Holland in 1999, but it soon became apparent that the pizza he wanted to order could not be delivered to his temporary address.

This gave the Business Information Technology student at the University of Twente an idea: to create a website with as many restaurants as possible for ordering food online. Jitse Groen registered the domain name Thuisbezorgd.nl and bought a handbook for novice programmers.

Why is Just Eat Takeaway stock falling?

There are a few potential reasons for why Just Eat Takeaway stock is falling. One possibility is that investors are worried about the company’s ability to continue growing at its current pace.

JET has been one of the fastest-growing companies in the food delivery space, but there are concerns that the market is becoming saturated and that Just Eat Takeaway will not be able to maintain its high growth rate.

Another possibility is that investors are concerned about the company’s ability to compete with larger rivals such as Uber Eats and Deliveroo. Just Eat Takeaway does not have the same scale or brand recognition as its larger rivals, and it faces an uphill battle in terms of competing for market share.

Finally, it is also possible that investor confidence has been shaken by recent news reports which have raised questions about the company’s business practices.

JET has been accused of using aggressive marketing tactics and delivering substandard customer service, and these allegations could damage the company’s reputation and deter customers from using its services.

JET Employees

JET stats

In 2021 the food delivery company had 15,000 employees across 25 countries worldwide, an increase from 5,423 employees in 2020. 

In December 2021 Jitse Groen – CEO of Just Eat Takeaway said:

It is very satisfying to set up a company with 20,000 employees. I think you can compare it to working on the railways in the nineteenth century. You can say later: I was there when we only had 200 kilometers of track, or when that one locomotive arrived. That’s the way you have to see it, now is that time.
