Barış Çalışkan

Market info

Market size

$ 15,000,000,000


Our opponents mostly include only one distributor. (Migros) What we offer is an easy way of price comparison. No time limitation. We believe that we will be the customers' choice because of fast membership with Facebook and Gmail integration, no price limitation while placing an order and price comparison.Just like customers who place orders from Yemeksepeti instead of McDonald's own website. Most of our competitors are in Istanbul. We are in Ankara. This is an advantage for us.

Startup traction

We are selected as a project which is in idea stage. Now we are in the testing stage of the prototype. We did pre-contract with different stores in Ankara.
