Delivery is a crucial part of any modern restaurant’s operations, especially in post-Covid world. From the very beginning we at Tolstoy decided to launch our own delivery system and not to work with the delivery aggregators.
We talked about sustainability, Tolstoy software and food as well as our future plans to raise the seed round.
Building reliable supply chain with continuous quality assurance is one of the key elements of successful restaurant business. That is why we are happy to work together with a partner like Metro.
Today is a good day. We are finally rolling out Tolstoy statistics for the public.

Here are the sales of our first Tolstoy location from the last week (Feb 16-21 – we are open 6 days a week for now). We had an average of EUR 1.382 a day (or EUR 1.434 if we calculate the delivery fee in). Around 1.100 dishes sold in a week.
Tolstoy was conceived as a cashless, fully self-service restaurant long before the Coronavirus pandemic hit. Two weeks into our soft opening, not only can we see that our plan has proved to be successful.
Today one of the customers said to me that our pizza was the best he’d ever eaten. Not the best vegan pizza, but the best pizza. Period. For me, this seconds-long exchange was a moment of tangible success.
