“Now that we have a solid foundation in the UK and Germany, we can execute our playbook to further penetrate the European market. We will begin with adjacent countries this year by leveraging our well-developed regional supplier network across more than 30 European nations.
‘We will leverage our regional supplier network across more than 30 European nations.’
In doing so, we are partnering with global suppliers who want to replicate their U.S. success with us in new markets, as well as local and regional suppliers in Europe with whom we already have strong relationships. In Europe, we also have a proven playbook when it comes to scaling our nascent but promising B2B business, which already shows early traction in tapping this sizable market.”
