“Frichti is an inspirational brand with incredible talents and values. What Julia, Quentin and the Frichti team have created in France is exceptional,” Kagan Sümer, founder and CEO of Gorillas, said in a statement. “They are not only one of the first ones to have discovered the immense potential of quick commerce, but also one of the first movers into private label and ready-to-eat segments.”
According to Gorillas, both companies bring complementary strengths to the deal, including Frichti’s long-standing expertise in building a sustainable operational network as well as their strong technological infrastructure. Gorillas has an ability to scale operations that will enable growth of the on-demand delivery services in Europe and beyond.
