Yemeksepeti, Turkey’s first and biggest online food ordering service, was recently sold for a whooping amount of $589 million to Delivery Hero, a German online food service.
Instead of simply taking all the money for himself, Yemeksepeti CEO Nevzat Aydin decided to share a huge percentage of the money with all his 115 employees. According to reports, the kindhearted boss handed out bonuses amounting to a total of $27 million.
Although the business wasn’t contractually obligated to do that, Aydin felt it was the right thing to do.
“We did this because if there is a success, we have accomplished it altogether.”
Yemeksepeti CEO Nevzat Aydin granted every employee more than $200,000 – that’s around 150 times of their usual monthly salaries of $1,000 to $1,800.
How did the employees react? Naturally, they were surprised and overwhelmed. Many got very emotional and cried tears of joy.
“There were emotions, because you affect the lives of the people. People can buy homes, cars.”
Most employees were emotional about the "life changing" gift given by the generous CEO.
Established in 2000 with a capital of $80,000, Yemeksepeti (which literally means “food cart” in the Turkish language) grew to be the country’s premier online food ordering service where customers can place food orders and have it delivered to their homes within 30 to 45 minutes. Aydin said the company averages more than 3 million transactions per month.
“Yemeksepeti’s success story did not happen overnight. I believe in team work and I believe success is much more enjoyable and glorious when shared with the rest of the team.”
It’s really a heartwarming story!
Aydin has truly set a wonderful example for all employers. His generosity for his employees will definitely have a huge impact on their lives. He, in return, will surely get their love and respect.

CEO and Founder Dan Price is not just Gravity Payments’ boss, he’s also a hero.
What makes employees happy? Is it having a nice, conducive work environment? Having honest and kind leaders who act professionally and know how to reward their subordinates fairly? High salary and great benefits? A CEO who really ( I mean really!) cares about the employees and not just the profit they bring in?
This can go on and on and I bet those people in the corporate world are wishing for these. I mean, wouldn’t it be nice to be a part of a company or institution that truly lives by its mission and vision statements? For those who are a part of such company, I say you’re indeed blessed…like the 120 employees of Gravity Payments.
