Our history


Wolt is founded in Helsinki, Finland 💙


We launched our service in Helsinki with ten restaurants.

By the end of the year, our small but amazing team expanded into Turku – our second Wolt city in Finland 🎉


The beautiful city of Tampere joined the merry bunch of Wolt cities at the start of the year 🤗

Our team and the number of cities kept growing! Welcome Espoo, Oulu and Jyväskylä 🚀

We expanded into Kuopio, Vantaa, Lahti, Vaasa, Pori and Rovaniemi!

A breathtaking year full of new city launches with much of Finland turning blue 🚙💨

While opening five new cities, our Wolt family kept growing so rapidly that we found ourselves in multiple offices as we couldn't fit into just one (and not for the first time!) 🤯

Many retailers joined Wolt – along with our very own grocery store, Wolt Market. That opened for business in April, helping our customers avoid contact during the difficult Covid-19 times 💙

In total there were 33 Wolt cities in Finland!

We kept expanding rapidly into retail, making it possible to order anything you need from Wolt 🛍


Our team continues to make cities better places to live – and we have plenty of fun doing so. 😍

Stay tuned for more!

Our plans for 2023 are big! We'll expand our services and retail portfolio even further. We'll also focus on Wolt+, our new monthly subscription program, which allows our customers to save on delivery fees! 🎉
