What is REKKI?

REKKI ( is transforming the way restaurants order ingredients from their suppliers. Our mobile app makes placing orders fast, reliable and efficient.

The concept for REKKI was born in the kitchen. Our founders ran restaurants for over 10 years, and saw firsthand all the problems inherent in the industry. So in 2016 they started building an app to make the lives of chefs easier. Today REKKI is the world's largest marketplace for restaurants and suppliers. REKKI gives chefs and restaurants the power of choice in easily partnering with suppliers; enabling them to browse, order, and pay seamlessly - saving both time and money.

Our passion to better the food industry echoes right into our teams where every individual is exceptional at what they do. We’re looking for equally talented individuals who are bold, innovative, and will not settle for mediocre as we work towards making the industry radically better off.
