Dutch online food ordering and home delivery company Takeaway.com has agreed to purchase BGmenu in Bulgaria and Oliviera in Romania, as part of its expansion strategy.

BGmenu is a food delivery firm in Bulgaria and Oliviera is one of the largest food delivery marketplaces in Romania.

To this end, the parties have signed an agreement under which the enterprise value for the transaction is €10.5m.

The acquisition will boost Takeaway.com presence in Eastern Europe. The company said that it will invest in both Bulgaria and Romania to speed-up further growth.

Takeaway.com CEO and founder Jitse Groen said: “With the acquisition of BGmenu and Oliviera we are adding fast-growing online food delivery markets with a sizeable population to our footprint. It is our intent to execute the same strategy in these countries that brought hypergrowth to our Polish business Pyszne.pl.”

BGmenu and Oliviera CEO Vladimir Davchev said: “We believe there is a significant market opportunity in southeastern Europe and partnering with Takeaway.com gives us the best opportunity to build on our success to date in this region.
