Danish takeaway and restaurant app company OrderYOYO is planning to expand its operations in Ireland following a surge in demand for food delivery last year.
OrderYOYO develops software for takeaways and restaurants that allows them to build and operate their own food ordering and delivery apps and sites instead of using large marketplace sites such as Deliveroo.
The Irish Independent quotes OrderYOYO chief executive Søren Gammelgaard as saying, "In the next three years, we are trebling the number of customers that we have, going deeper into the market."

Gammelgaard continued, "We are more targeted at takeaways and quick service restaurants, the small independent restaurants. We focus on the online ordering for the small local takeaway owner."
Gammelgaard added, "We're a white-label solution, so the order solution that they have is branded in their own name and they own their own customers.
"We've seen increased demand from restaurant owners because of our more competitive business model."
Number Of Users In Ireland And Commission Rate
At present, approximately 600 takeaways and restaurants in Ireland use OrderYOYO's services, including brands such as Beshoff Bros and independent Abrakebabra franchisees.
OrderYOYO charges a commission rate of between 5% and 10% on orders placed through its platform.
