Getir, which operates in a total of 15 cities including London, Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester, will continue to grow and strengthen its position as the pioneer of the fast delivery industry in the UK, which it founded with the acquisition of Weezy.
AN EXCITING DEVELOPMENT
Noting that they have achieved many successes abroad in less than a year, Getir Founder Nazım Salur said, “We started to serve in the USA, the center of technological initiatives a few weeks ago. We continue our growth abroad without slowing down. Weezy, which has managed to gain an important place in its region despite being a young startup. We believe that our way of doing business and our cultural approach are very compatible with Getir. That’s why we are adding Weezy, believing that it will make a great contribution to Getir. We are happy to make another exciting acquisition that will further strengthen our service network in the UK, one of the most important markets for us. He said we are happy.
