Getir pretty much started their debut on international expansion by entering the UK market this year and launching in London’s Zones. The regional customers from London already love their services in 2 months after its launch. Getir also aims to launch in three European countries and expand their market. They plan on launching Getir in France. Netherlands and Germany and it’ll make them reach a total of 5 markets in the last six months since their international debut.

“We began in 2015 with the vision to disrupt how people get their groceries. Every month, we deliver a variety of 1,500 products to millions of people in Turkey in an average of 10 minutes. Thanks to the interest in our groundbreaking business model, we had the opportunity to finalize a Series C round only two months after our Series B.
“We have now raised $300M and will use the investment for our ambitious European expansion. We are glad to announce that we have become the fastest Turkish unicorn. And in the coming months, we will also start operating in Germany, France, and the Netherlands. Once the spread of the COVID-19 virus settles we also intend to start operating in Brazil,” said the Founder of Getir, Nazim Salur.
