Just Eat reports 51% increase in orders

Just Eat, the online takeaway service which began trading on the London Stock Exchange last month, has benefitted from the unusually wet winter weather in the UK and northern Europe.

In its interim management statement for the first quarter of the year, the company announced a 51% year-on-year increase in orders, with the launch of an iPad App in the UK helping to push business from mobile devices to more than 50% of total UK orders.

David Buttress, chief executive of Just Eat, said: "I am pleased with our 2014 performance to date, with trading slightly ahead of management expectations in a period of strong growth and great execution by our local teams.

"Just Eat's continued growth reflects the further expansion of our contracted restaurant network giving our consumers an increased choice as they shift to online takeaway ordering."

Founded in Denmark in 2001, Just Eat is now based in London. It has more than 36,000 restaurants and takeaway outlets on its books.
