Wamdat Inspire Talk: Melih Odemis of Food-Ordering Site Yemeksepeti [Wamda TV]
Melih Odemis, co-Founder of Yemeksepeti, discusses how he and his co-founders initially were inspired to be entrepreneurs at our June event, CoE E-Commerce. Started in 2000, Yemeksepeti has grown to a well-known online food ordering platform throughout Turkey and is now also an Endeavor Turkey company.
With over 1.5 million users and 50,000 orders a day, Odemis describes Yemeksepeti as “the biggest kitchen in the world.” The company, which recently took on a round of $44 million in funding from General Atlantic, has adapted to changing technology over its 11-year lifespan and continues to bring new users from across Turkey, and now from the UAE and Russia.
A “big online food court,” Yemeksepeti believes in fostering a dynamic work environment to attract and keep talent. Employees work in a fast-paced environment, processing over 200 orders per minute, but still enjoying their workplace with opportunities to socialize and have creative fun together.
