BigDish upbeat as restaurants rush to sign up as coronavirus fears hit footfall

BigDish's platform helps "yield management" at restaurants - a fancy phrase that basically means luring in customers when the restaurant is less than full

BigDish PLC -

Dining deals and discounts offerer BigDish PLC (LON:DISH) said the fourth week of February was a record week for new client additions.

The company revealed that 58 new restaurants signed up to its yield management platform in the final full week of February, taking the total number added in February up to 166.

Proving it is an ill wind that blows nobody any good, BigDish said coverage of the coronavirus outbreak had encouraged restaurants to sign up for the service in the final week of February, as they sought to keep their restaurants reasonably full.

In all, 562 restaurants are live on the BigDish system with another 21 set to go live soon.

"I am pleased with the pace of growth in February and to have surpassed the 500 restaurant mark,” said Tom Sumner, the chief executive officer of BigDish.

“It is also very pleasing to see that we are starting to gain some traction with restaurant groups and that quality restaurants are joining BigDish. The technology team has been working on some exciting product functionality improvements specifically for restaurant groups and I look forward to being able to update the market in due course," he added.
