Berlin-based food delivery scaleup Delivery Hero acquires Pizza-online.fi

Just a few weeks after the acquisition of OnlinePizza Norden Group, the Berlin-based scaleup Delivery Hero, a global network for online food ordering, continues to expand into Scandinavia. Delivery Hero today announced the acquisition of Pizza-online.fi, which it already had a minority stake in, for a single-digit million amount (Update – February 2023: The startup seems to be no longer in business under this website and we therefore deactivated the link).

Delivery Hero, founded by the German company-builder Team Europe in 2010, has become one of the world’s leading online food ordering services in only 18 months. Worldwide, Delivery Hero has over four million customers, and 19,000 partner restaurants and delivery services on four continents. According to Delivery Hero, revenues on the platform will be more than €250 million this year, and in the first quarter of 2012 the network’s orders increased by 84%.

Niklas Oestberg, the co-CEO and one of the founders of Delivery Hero, stated: “Pizza-online.fi send its partner restaurants €25 million in revenue this year. With Delivery Hero we plan to double this number next year“.

Pizza-online.fi delivers online orders to almost 700 different restaurants across Finland, and the service contains largest Finnish fast food chains like Kotipizza, Pizza Express and Pizza Service. The service has over 300,000 users and it delivers around 1.5 million orders in a year, of almost 5 million portions of food. Pizza-online.fi is based in Kerava and has 11 employees.

The Delivery Hero team wants to become a global leader in online food ordering and has already received €40 million from investors. The young company has more than 400 employees around the world, with 250 staff working from its Berlin headquarters.
