Kukd.com, a new restaurant booking and takeaway ordering business, is due to launch in November 2015 with the creation of 280 jobs.  The company which will serve businesses across the UK will be based in Torfaen, South Wales and has been setup by entrepreneur Shelim Hussein of the Euro Foods Group.  The business start-up has been supported by investment from the Welsh government.  Over 3,000 restaurants have reportedly already signed up so that their customers can order via the various technology platforms.  100 staff were employed to build the website and a further 180 staff are expected to be added over a three year period.
