EatOut, the region’s largest restaurant discovery platform today announced a partnership with Delhi based Dineout India, which is owned by Times Internet Limited – India’s leading digital products company and the digital venture of the Times Group, India’s largest media and entertainment group.
Through this partnership, EatOut will launch Dineout’s InResto Restaurant technology platform to their restaurant partners in East Africa. InResto works with over 12,000 restaurants, bars and quick service outlets who are spread over India, Bahrain, Dubai, Oman, Qatar & Singapore.
The platform is one of the largest technology platforms for the F&B industry in India and helps restaurants manage their reservations, walk-ins, delivery orders, feedback, marketing communication, and white label apps. Currently, the company processes 30 million seats and manages over 20 million delivery orders every month and has helped some of its restaurant partners improve operational efficiency by almost 35%.
EatOut’s MD, Mikul Shah had this to say: “We are excited about bringing inResto to East Africa. Our aim is to continue building on the success of our restaurant festivals and media businesses. The Dineout team shares our vision and together we are already working closely with some leading local brands, as we gear up for the official launch of the platform later this year.”
In anticipation of this partnership, Co-founder and Head of Global Growth of Dineout India Vivek Kapoor says: “In our endeavour to reach out to leading brands globally, the alliance with EatOut fits like a charm. We are really impressed by the work done by Mikul’s team and I feel that the F&B space in Kenya is at the brink of leaping into the big food tech revolution! Our timing couldn’t have been better. With this partnership, Kenyans can expect more exciting developments in the restaurant scene that will ultimately create a better dining experience for consumers.”
