Foodora Permanently Closes Canadian Operations

Foodora, the app based delivery company, has announced that it will permanently close in Canada. Foodora will cease operations at midnight on May 11.

Foodora Inc. is a subsidiary of Delivery Hero SE which is based out of Berlin. An e-mail was sent to delivery drivers on April 27 informing them of their departure from the food delivery market in Canada.

Foodora Closing E-mail

Shortly after, Foodora issued a press release on their website stating that they are closing due to increased competition in the market and an inability to turn a sustainable level of profit.

Foodora has filed a Notice of Intention to Make a Proposal under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, which effectively allows them to restructure their affairs to avoid going bankrupt.

Foodora currently operates in the following Canadian cities:

  • Toronto
  • Montreal
  • Vancouver
  • Calgary
  • Edmonton
  • Ottawa
  • Laval
  • Mississauga
  • Quebec City

The company was competing for business with other food delivery apps like Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes and Door Dash.
