Company announces decision as a result of not earning enough revenue in Canada.

Apr 27, 2020 - EightSix Staff

Despite being one of the first major delivery apps to hit the Canadian market five years ago, Foodora Canada is shutting down operations on May 11.

According to the company's statement, Foodora Canada simply did not make enough money to warrant staying in business.

"We're faced with strong competition in the Canadian market, and operate a business that requires a high volume of transactions to turn a profit," stated the company.

Additional challenges include Foodora's battle with delivery contractors, who have been trying to unionize.

Major competitors Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes, and DoorDash remain in operation.
