hicago-based Grubhub is set to acquire on-campus food ordering platform Tapingo for $150 million.
…Grubhub has been working this year to expand into towns across America that have been long overlooked by the on-demand economy. A partnership with Yum Brands, the Louisville, Ky.-based parent of Taco Bell, KFC and Pizza Hut, announced earlier this year is expected to help achieve that goal.
… As of February, Grubhub employed 2,125 people, roughly half of whom are in Chicago. That was up from 1,518 employees a year earlier, a nearly 40 percent increase. The company has continued hiring this year.
