Wolt is the latest arrival of Finnish companies in Greece
Wolt has grown in five years from a Finnish start-up company with 6 founding members to an international company that employs 2500+ people and has a presence in 23 countries and over 150 cities
Our embassy had an interesting discussion with Mr. Tony Honkanen who is responsible for the international expansion of the company.
Tony told us how Wolt has grown in five years from a Finnish start-up company with 6 founding members to an international company that employs 2500+ people and has a presence in 23 countries and over 150 cities.
What is the secret behind this success? According to Tony, there are several things, such as founding members giving a lot of emphasis to developing the application technology so that customers and partners would enjoy the experience of using it. Wolt has also given emphasis in recruiting talented people that share the same values, and a big part of the success of the company has been the highly skilled country teams that can serve the customers and partners in their own language.
Wolt started its internationalization steps in neighboring countries, Sweden and Estonia with little experience. After the first efforts, the company concentrated in making the processes and the technology ready to be adopted all over the world. Wolt Greece was established in January 2019, and the company employs today over 100 people and cooperates with a couple of thousand restaurants and couriers.
