Gorillas expands delivery service to Nottingham


Berlin-based grocery startup Gorillas has launched in Nottingham, three months after its debut in London and Manchester.

The company, which claims to deliver groceries in ten minutes, is reportedly eyeing Bristol and Cambridge as its next locations.

It is unclear how well its model will work in non-university towns that lack a ready cohort of student couriers.

In Nottingham, the on-demand service will operate out of an industrial unit in the city centre.

“We’re looking forward to engaging with the local community and growing our presence in the city,” Gorillas brand manager George Edgar said. 

The news comes after reports that Gorillas was raising £700,000 to fund its international growth.

According to The Times, the extra funding could push its valuation up to £3.5 billion.

So far, the startup has concentrated on expanding across Western Europe, with a presence in Germany, France, Italy, Holland, Belgium and Spain.

The UK appears to be its third-largest market, behind Germany and the Netherlands.
