Rohlik, the Czech Republic-based online grocery supermarket and delivery service founded in 2014, is now a €300 million-a-year business thanks to Covid-19. The Prague-based company today announced that it has secured €190 million in funding to fuel further growth.
The financing round was led by Partech, joined by Index Ventures, with participation from EBRD, J&T Banka, Quadrille Capital, R2G and existing investor Enern.
The company aims to grow its business in existing markets such as Hungary and Austria, where it has some 750,000 customers, but also expand into new ones, particularly in Germany.
"At Rohlik, we want people to ‘eat well and live well’. We offer a broad selection of awesome food to our customers and provide them with a service that makes life easier," said Rohlik CEO Tomáš Čupr. "With this funding round, we will be able to accelerate our growth and continue to invest in our market-leading technology and operating capabilities."
