Just-Eat teamTalk about delivering innovation, Just Eat, a leading online take-away service, is to open a new technology innovation hub in the Engine Shed in Bristol  after receiving support from Invest Bristol and Bath – the inward investment agency for the Bristol & Bath region.

Just Eat hope the new technology hub will help them stay ahead in an increasingly competitive market with the team focusing on innovation and improving service for its customers.
