Melih Odemis, co-Founder of Yemek Sepeti, discusses how he and his co-founders initially were inspired to be entrepreneurs at our June event, CoE E-Commerce. Started in 2000, Yemek Sepeti has grown to a well-known online food ordering platform throughout Turkey.

With over 1.5 million users and 50,000 orders a day, Odemis describes Yemek Sepeti as “the biggest kitchen in the world.” The company 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,” Yemek Sepeti 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.
