British delivery platform Deliveroo will soon stop operating in Germany in an attempt to focus on other markets, the company announced.
The company had already announced the decision a few months ago after its Dutch competitor Takeaway.com grew in Germany.
Deliveroo will stop its activities there on August 16. The company – which does not exclude a return to Germany but prefers to focus on other growth markets – said that restaurants, employees and delivery companies will receive the necessary compensation. It is active in 13 other countries.
Deliveroo, headquartered in London, was founded in 2013.
