Everli, an online grocery shopping platform, has announced plans to expand into Germany and Romania in early 2022.
The announcement follows the company’s recent Series C $100 million investment round and a period of rapid growth for the company, which is now operating in over 80 cities across Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, and France.
The expansion will see Everli bring its supermarket partnership model to Germany and Romania, where there has been increasing consumer demand for online grocery delivery.
The launch will give millions of customers the opportunity to access same-day delivery for large baskets, the company said.
Founded in 2014 in Verona, Everli is a marketplace that allows customers to order products from their choice of supermarket and have them delivered within a one-hour window via dedicated Everli Shoppers.
Everli has fast become the delivery partner of choice for some of Europe’s largest grocery brands, including Lidl, Kaufland, and Carrefour, offering access to over 300,000 products.
Everli will be establishing offices in Berlin and Bucharest as part of the move, and will be creating new office based and fully remote roles in Germany and Romania across operations, sales, and marketing, as well as offering flexible work to Everli Shoppers.
Federico Sargenti, chief executive, commented, “Our vision at Everli is to deliver customers peace of mind with a trouble-free grocery experience they love and trust. While demand in many markets across Europe has dramatically increased, there’s still a lack of available and convenient online same-day grocery shopping for many customers, including in Germany and Romania.
"Our model, which works in conjunction with existing local supermarkets, allows us to rapidly and sustainably provide a unique service offering a wide selection of fresh and packaged goods, in both city centres and lower density areas, delivering groceries in as little as one hour.
"After continuing to grow in 2021, we’re confident and excited to now deliver our vision to customers in Germany and Romania.”
