Europe’s leading online grocery shopping platform Everli has announced its expansion into Germany and Romania following a Series C investment round which saw the Italian start-up raise $100 million.
The online marketplace, which currently operates in 80 cities across Italy, France, Poland and the Czech Republic, is planning its new launches in early 2022 and will set up offices in Berlin and Bucharest.
Everli is a marketplace that lets customers order groceries from their supermarket of choice and have the shopping delivered within a one-hour window of the customers’ preferred delivery slot through its service Everli Shoppers.
The online grocery platform offers access to over 300,000 products and is the delivery partner of choice of some of Europe’s largest supermarkets, including Lidl, Carrefour and Kaufland.
Everli CEO, Federico Sargenti, said: “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.”
Founded in Verona in 2014, Everli is now the main European e-grocery marketplace. Headquartered in Milan, with offices also in Verona and Warsaw, Everli’s team has grown to more than 250 people, and has created more than 100 partnerships with retailers and CPG companies. Serving over 80 cities in Europe, to date Everli has delivered groceries more than 3 million times.
