Since its establishment in 2014, Rohlik has gained recognition for its automated fulfillment centers, which enable efficient packaging and grocery dispatch. The fresh funding will be directed towards refining this process, stretching the company’s reach even further.

One of Rohlik’s major selling points is its prompt delivery service, which includes an innovative 15-minute delivery window option. With the quickest delivery recorded within an hour, Rohlik has set a high bar for efficiency and reliability in the grocery delivery market.

Rohlik CEO Tomas Cupr has shared insights into the company’s expansion strategy. The focus will be on establishing profitability in local markets like the Czech Republic and Hungary before moving on to other territories. This gradual approach has allowed the company to understand specific market dynamics, thus ensuring its sustainability and risk reduction.

The company currently operates in several European countries, including the Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Germany, and Romania.
