GrubHub buys Israeli food ordering co Tapingo for $150m

With offices in Tel Aviv, San Francisco and Denver, Tapingo was founded in 2012 by CEO Daniel Almog and CTO Udi Oster. The company has 90 employees in Israel and the US.

Almog said, “Joining Grubhub is an important step forward for Tapingo. Grubhub is the industry leader in food delivery, allowing us to provide even greater value to our campus partners and student diners with access to Grubhub’s technology and delivery expertise. By joining forces with Grubhub’s network of over 85,000 restaurant partners that offer online delivery and pickup, we’ll continue to serve our loyal diners long after they graduate from college, which has always been our aspiration.”

Tapingo has built a technology platform custom designed for campus use, with direct integration into college meal plans and point-of-sale (POS) systems, ensuring seamless order-taking and accurate, up-to-the-minute transparency on wait times for diners. The Tapingo platform also streamlines operations and increases in-store efficiency for campus restaurant partners-including Taco Bell, Chipotle, Chick-fil-A, Panda Express and Jamba Juice-and powers partnerships with Aramark and Sodexo, the leading providers of food services and facilities management nationwide.
