TripAdvisor Adds Food Delivery Via Takeaway.com Partnership

Takeaway.com, the Dutch online food delivery marketplace, announced news on Thursday (Nov. 2) of a partnership with TripAdvisor, the travel site, in which it will integrate Takeaway.com’s network of over 31,000 restaurants into TripAdvisor’s desktop site, mobile website and app.

Takeaway.com said in a press release that, as a result of the partnership, TripAdvisor customers will be able to order food from Takeaway.com’s restaurant partners across Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Luxembourg and Portugal by simply clicking the “Order Online” button. Once selected, consumers are rerouted to Takeaway.com’s website, where they can place an order for food delivery.

“We are very happy that TripAdvisor has chosen Takeaway.com as their partner to offer their users the most convenient way of ordering food from the widest choice in restaurants and kitchen types in Continental Europe. We are looking forward to partnering with TripAdvisor and further expand our leading position in Europe,” said Jörg Gerbig, COO Takeaway.com, in the press release.

TripAdvisor’s head of restaurant commerce, Evan Becker, said in the same press release that with more than 4.4 million restaurant listings, the company is aiming to be the go-to dining resource for travelers as well as locals around the globe. “We’re thrilled to partner with Takeaway.com to provide our users with access to thousands of new food delivery options from their network of restaurant partners,” said Becker.

Takeaway.com isn’t the only food delivery company that’s been inking partnerships in recent weeks. In October, Grubhub, an online food ordering and delivery platform, revealed it was expanding its range of delivery and catering options once again, this time by announcing news of a partnership with another national leader in food services: BJ’s Restaurants and Brewhouse.  

BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. operates a nationwide chain of casual dining restaurants offering a diverse range of menu items. Starting today, customers in many of the states served by BJ’s Restaurants will be able to order their favorites with the ease of Grubhub’s platform.

“We are excited to be expanding our delivery options and combining BJ’s extensive menu with the convenience of Grubhub,” said Lon Ledwith, executive vice president of Operations at BJ’s Restaurants, Inc.
