About aleno

aleno was founded in Zurich in 2015 by a team that had experienced first-hand how difficult it can be to run ones own restaurant. aleno is headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland.

Our great team also operates from many other locations such as Berlin, Munich and Wroclaw.We have a dynamic corporate culture with a start-up mentality. We have passionate restaurateurs, sales and tech experts working hand in hand in flat hierarchies. Together, we are shaping the path to a new era of hospitality.

To build a great corporate culture, we have established the following cultural principles:

Customer Obsession

Our customers are at the core of everything we do. Everyone in aleno has a deep understanding of them and their problems. Our business success is determined by how good we are at solving these.

Moving fast

Speed is essential for our success. It’s better to move fast and make mistakes than to move slowly and miss opportunities. We have a strong bias to action and constantly push ourselves to satisfy the customer through early and fast delivery of valuable products.


We are a hybrid company. Therefore transparency and communication are key. We foster an environment where you can openly share your thoughts and challenge the status quo if needed. We all work to ensure everyone has access to all the information they need.

A positive mindset

We think big and see opportunities where others see difficulties. Together, we believe we are able to solve the most complex challenges.

Acting like owners

We see a problem? We solve it. "That's someone else's problem" simply doesn't exist for us.


Different people approach problems differently. We need that. aleno is committed to diversity as well as inclusion. We are an equal opportunity employer and committed to the principles of affirmative action. Qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to origin, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender perception or identity, national origin, age, marital status, protected veteran status, or disability status or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law, ordinance or regulation.
