Yume no Machi Souzou linkai, the largest food delivery server in Japan, has acquired Indonesia’s online food delivery portal Klik-Eat. It has increased its possession of Klik-Eat’s shares to 55.6 per cent from 19 per cent.

This makes the collaboration of Yume no Machi, IMJ Investment Partners, and a Japan-based private investor control 80 per cent of Klik-Eat’s shares. This new acquisition, however, doesn’t change Klik-Eat’s structure, with Michael Saputra and Willy Haryanto, Klik-Eat’s co-founders, still in the lead.

Yume no Machi will be involved in Klik-Eat’s business operation and management. This actually started with Yume no Machi’s first investment last year, when Yume no Machi’s CEO Rie Nakamura and Finance Manager Masateru Kaneko joined Klik-Eat’s executive board as director and commissioner.

The company said it won’t shut the opportunity of making Klik-Eat its ride to expand in highly prospective Southeast Asian market.

Demae Can, its main service which was established in 1999 and has partnered with 11,000 restaurants, has become the most popular food delivery service in Japan.
