Waino’s mission is to deliver your weekly or convenience groceries to your door whenever you want, at retail prices. We work within 15 zip codes in Palma and we have over 11,000 products in-store from different grocery stores (you can order from all at the same time!). We already have a working product and you can make your first order here.
We have developed Waino because we have very little time to go buy the groceries. In our city, there are no real solutions that work for us, therefore we have built it for ourselves.
We are growing really fast and if you are interested to know more about our startup, product, or you feel like you want to join us, drop us an email at email@example.com.
