Company Snapshot

Founded by three business-savvy cousins (Elda, Aydin, and Damla) from the Black Sea port town of Samsun, Turkmix is the first restaurant chain worldwide to offer traditional Turkish foods in a professional, fast-food environment. With four successful restaurants already in operation and the fast-food market in Turkey growing at an estimated 10-15% a year, Turkmix’s potential is enormous.

Endeavor and Turkmix

The Entrepreneurs have secured financing from an Endeavor Turkey VentureCorps member, who became a partner and majority shareholder.

Endeavor Turkey is currently helping re-brand the firm through mentorship and key introductions.
