GrubHub was founded in 2004 in Chicago, Illinois, by two web developers who were tired of out of date restaurant menus. The company is a food ordering and delivery service that is involved with more than 44,000 restaurants in more than 1,000 cities.
GrubHub and Seamless, another food and delivery service, merged in 2013 and formed a new company, GrubHub, Inc. The company went public on the NASDAQ in April of 2014 and can be found under the ticker symbol: GRUB.
The company has had several acquisitions over the past few years, including acquiring AllMenus in 2011, Restaurants on the Run in 2015, and LA Bite in May of 2016.
GrubHub stock prices surged in July of 2018 after the company acquired mobile payment platform LevelUp.
Also in 2020, Uber Eats and GrubHub are neck and neck in competition with one another.
GrubHub also offers their services in the UK. The company works via a mobile phone app, or via their online service. In 2017, the company had annual revenue of $683.07 million.
