We opened our Norwegian service for online takeaway ordering at the end of November last year, and even though I have been together with Lars Ødegaard (our NO country manager) many times, I have never been to our Oslo office due to various bad excuses that lead me to cancel trips to Oslo (sick, things I had to take care of, bla-bla). So, it was with great pleasure I finally met the Norwegian team at their office in Lillestrøm (just North of Oslo), which in traditional Just-Eat style is a humble adress with low rents, since we prefer to spend our money on other things than office costs.
Our Nowegian colleagues are working hard to make Just-Eat as successful in Norway as in other countries, and they are off to a good start. We soon have 150 restaurants online and orders are coming nicely. Online ordering in Norway is nothing new, but our approach, where we aggregate different restaurants with different cuisines is not seen before. Soon the e-commerce savvy Norwegians will know about it.
Lars and the rest of the NO team are dedicated in their work, and as can be seen on the below picture, the most important thing right now is not to have a clean and well-structured desk, but to focus on growing restaurants and orders -;)
