The origin of dalou?
Stan is from Paris but is a real citizen of the world! After having created a successful startup on his university campus in England, he decided to join the Dalou adventure to bring happiness with food in the busy work-life of everyday workers!
Wlad is the original founder of Dalou and always wanted to become a chef! He was shocked to see that 30% of office workers skip breakfast because of time constraints! So he decided to create an easy platform where people could order delicious food at the office!
From Berlin to London:
Dalou startet in January 2016 by Wlad, a french student living in London. After having worked for Foodora in Berlin – a premium food delivery startup – he noticed two major problems in food delivery: there was nothing for breakfast, and nothing answering the needs of companies. Companies were left out with old-fashioned, expensive, and bad quality catering!
So he decided to create a new food delivery concept in London that would guarantee quality of products, choice to fit everybody’s dietary preferences, and convenience when placing an order. The London experience proved the viability of the concept, and Wlad decided to take Dalou to a professional level. That’s how Stan Jallot, a friend of Wlad, joined the team to help Dalou grow.
From London to Zurich!
Stan and Wlad started very well together, by being selected in the famous Kickstart Accelerator in Zurich. This accelerator program was initiated by digital Switzerland, supported by the the willingness of a group of CEOs (Swisscom, UBS, Credit Suisse, Raiffeisen, Migros, Coop, EY, PWC, etc.) to bring innovation to Switzerland.
Coming to Zurich, it was also the moment, when we met our mentor Oliver Chappuis, a dedicated food expert and food enthusiast. He made us lunch dalou.ch and become the only food startup of the KSACC that was operating and serving clients during the program. Together with his friend Oliver Stahl (founder of “Snackbox” and “Früchtebox”) they decided not only to further support dalou.ch by investing and advising us when the KSACC program ended, but also to join the core Swiss management team.
Where are we today?
Dalou has been serving delicious breakfast and cold lunches to hundreds of companies in the city of Zurich! We continue to establish new partnerships with excellent, local bakeries and food producers to further develop our offers in the Zurich area. Our plan is to then expand to other cities!
