JLL has been appointed by Just Eat Takeaway.com, a leading global online food delivery marketplace, to acquire leaseholds for inner-city ‘Scoober’ hubs across Europe and the UK.

Scoober is Just Eat Takeaway.com’s delivery model in Europe with employed couriers. Scoober hubs provide a location for couriers to begin and end their shifts, and to house Scoober’s fleet of e-bikes and materials.

The growth of Scoober will support and enable the company’s plans for continued growth and allow them to continue connecting consumers and restaurants through its platform. Scoober is currently already active in over 200 cities in 14 markets.

Ashley Smart, EMEA Logistics Business Development Director, JLL, said: “This mandate is an excellent opportunity for us to work with a leading online food delivery service and household name as they continue to grow globally. There is an increasing demand for last mile urban logistics space, which this mandate underpins. Our aim is to identify inner city industrial units for JET, as well as identifying obsolete space that may have come around as a result of the accelerated shift towards e-commerce. We look forward to working with Just Eat Takeaway.com, and we’re confident that we can find some great locations for them.” 

Mark Deumer, Senior Vice President - Logistics, Just Eat Takeaway.com, said: “Due to our growth we’re expanding our existing network of Scoober hubs across Europe. Our aim is to locate properties that are within close vicinity to our partner restaurants and customers so Scoober can best serve them and keep up with the demand for our services.”

JLL has been successful at securing leaseholds for Just Eat Takeaway.com within major cities such as London, Brighton, Cambridge, Liverpool, Rome, Milan, Bordeaux, Lille, and Lyon – and one of the recent acquisitions in East London was awarded with a CoStar Award for the top industrial leasing deal of Q2 2021.

Just Eat Takeaway.com continues to seek properties between 5,000 and 20,000 square feet, and landlords and/or agents with suitable inner-city properties in major cities are requested to contact JLL directly.
