This morning, a tipster wrote in to divulge the news that GrubHub, the food delivery company that owns MenuPages — a repository for restaurant menus — had laid off all of its NY-based staff dedicated to MenuPages. Abby Hunt, director of public relations for Grub Hub confirmed the news via email.
GrubHub is transferring the MenuPages operational functions to Chicago over the next three months, and will continue to fully support the MenuPages platform from the Chicago office.
It was a difficult decision, and one that was made with a lot of thought and consideration. Fundamentally, this was based on efficiency of workflow and systems and will better position the company for continued long-term growth.
Additionally, GrubHub has opted to let go of Tom Bohan, who has served as Director of MenuPages since 2002. GrubHub confirms that Bohan will remain on board for "the next few months," but then will depart.
GrubHub employees more than 800 people. The company is affiliated with delivery service Seamless. Earlier this week, EVP Margo Druckor sold off over $180K in stock, just as their stock price rose $12 over the New Year's holiday.
