It’s story time

We’ve got quite a story to tell. If you’re sitting comfortably, then we’ll begin.

Get to know us

We’re a tech company from Finland best known for our delivery platform. In 2015 we started with restaurant food and over time we added groceries, gifts and other items. Now it’s possible for people living in hundreds of cities across 23 countries to get whatever they need, delivered quickly and reliably to their front door. We try to make every city we enter a better place – and by that we mean happier customers and partners. We’re also really proud to have the #1 rated delivery app across the app stores. But we’re only just getting started.

Wolt through the years

2014

Wolt was founded in Helsinki

  • We had six in the founding team, with five focusing on product development.
  • Our first office wasn’t fancy. It was a 10 m2 space in central Helsinki and we were all there together in one room for the first 9 months. Somehow, we made it work!

Our first delivery in Helsinki

  • 14 employees by the end of September.
  • We raised €2.5m seed round of financing. 
  • We moved to a bigger office, right under Supercell’s HQ in Ruoholahti (next to the city center).
  • The head of the App Store paid us a special visit after we launched – something that was pretty unheard of for a company our size. We took it as a compliment!

We think our work is meaningful. We hope you do too.

We make cities better

And by better, we mean happier people all across the city. Happier businesses with more customers and sales than ever before. Happier courier partners who can choose their own hours and be their own boss. And happier customers who now spend less time shopping and cooking, and more time doing the things they love.

We help local businesses thrive

Teaming up with Wolt brings new customers and added sales to businesses of all sizes. And as we do the heavy lifting, there are only upsides for restaurants, stores and retailers. Take restaurants, for example. Our partner surveys show that 9 out of 10 Wolt orders are new sales restaurants wouldn’t have otherwise got.

We offer courier partners a flexible way to earn

Our courier partners enjoy more chances to earn, flexible hours and the best support around. They can work full-time or do a few hours here and there – it’s their call. Either way, our partners decide what works for them. We’re proud to team up with over 100,000 courier partners, and even prouder to get a 4.1/5 score in our latest satisfaction survey.

We give customers more time for other things

Wolt takes all the hassle out of cooking and shopping. Walking to the store, carrying heavy bags, making dinner…it all adds up. Our customers can get whatever they need right to the door – giving them more time with the family, more time for hobbies and more time doing nothing at all.

We take our responsibilities seriously

As a fast-growing company, it’s essential we take responsibility for our actions and our impact on the world around us. From carbon-neutral deliveries to helping feed the homeless and excluded, see how we’ve played our part in making cities and the planet better. We know there’s more we can do, but it’s a good start.
