Hi, we’re Olo! Our name stands for “Online Ordering” which – as funny as it sounds now – used to be three words back in the dial-up era. We set out to create convenience with order-ahead in 2005, sending text message orders to busy coffee shop printers from feature phones two years before the iPhone would change the world. Our uphill efforts back then, before 95% of the population had a smartphone, remind us just how far the industry has come. We’re proud to play a part in shaping the evolution of the restaurant industry and the new era of digital hospitality. In March of 2021, we became a publicly-traded company on the NYSE.
