Menu Next Door, the startup which lets you cook for your neighbours, is no longer available in London or Paris - the only two cities it expanded into outside of Brussels, where it was founded.

The company raised $2 million (£1.6 million) in seed financing in May 2016. At the time TechCrunch reported it had 900 cooks on the platform and 110,000 users.

But the service is now only available in Belgium, according to its website, and it looks like some of its employees left in September and October of last year.

According to LinkedIn, the country manager for France left in October 2016 and its COO left in September. The company's UK general manager told Business Insider he too has left and there is no longer a team in London.

The company allows anyone to sign up and create a menu of their own home-cooked meal for a set date in the future, which neighbours can then pre-order, all through its website. According to Crunchbase , the startup is backed by Index Ventures, Local Globe, Kima Ventures, and TheFamily.

Menu Next Door did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
