Libuda : Glovo operates in more than 20 countries
In Poland it operates in just eight cities ? so the Pizza Portal acquisition looks intended to beef up its footprint there, with the latter slated as the largest food-service platform in the market ? even as Glovo doubles down on expanding its engineering capacity by tapping up local tech talent.
Where Glovo doesn?t operate in Europe highlights some of that ongoing food fight, with no offering in Germany or the U.K., for instance. Its regional strategy focuses on the South and East. It has also been building up an international business, opening in markets in LatAm and the Middle East and Africa.
Scaling fast is certainly core to Glovo?s playbook, though. It says it launched in a new city every four days on average last year, while the 2015-founded startup now employs more than 1,300 people in all.
