Understanding the investment opportunity
Fudeat is the Marketplace specialised in corporate catering (B2B).
It connects companies (clients) with the best caterers and restaurants (suppliers) through its platform. With a 360 digital service, they cover all the gastronomic needs inside and outside the office for companies and their employees thanks to a virtual management tool, free and 100% customisable.
They work with two lines of service:
- Service to companies: Catering for meetings or events, fruit and snacks for the office, gourmet gift boxes or the complete management of an event outside the office (space, catering, extras...).
- Employee service: Virtual Canteen (daily menus for employees with no minimum orders or transport costs).
Its keys to growth have been:
- Digitalising the contracting of catering and daily menus to offer both clients and suppliers total control of each order.
- Creating a Corporate Account for its customers to manage all the information (orders / invoices / users) on the same platform.
- A Customer Service team that is close, responsive and with very short response and service times.
For all these reasons, today, they are the leading digital platform in Spain for gastronomic services to companies by turnover (GMV) and this is partly thanks to:
- The added value that they know that gastronomy has in bringing teams and companies together.
- The importance they have given, from the beginning, to the development and implementation of a digital and centralised management and control tool for companies.
