The team behind the online food service Nomme is bringing their next technology solution to the market: ClickDishes.
The Calgary-born startup has raised a $1.6 million seed round from angel investors. ClickDishes is a mobile app and platform that partners with local restaurants to enable their customers to order in-app, streamlining to-go ordering, dine in eating, and payment services. The app is launching in Calgary and Vancouver initially.
“After working with our other food app, Nomme, we realized there was a gap in the market,” said Alec Wang, CEO of ClickDishes. “Imagine: No more lineups during your lunch break when you want to get your food, or no longer having to track down your server to come to your table to place an order or to get the bill—ClickDishes is the solution.”
There is no cost to using ClickDishes for consumers. Users download the app and create a free account to place a take-out or dine-in order with any restaurant partners. ClickDishes takes a small percentage of a restaurant’s order total on their pay-as-you-go model, or for large volume locations offers subscription plans.
“By using ClickDishes to augment the ordering process, restaurants and their staff can focus on delivering quality meals and experiences to their patrons,” says Vicki Zhou, VP of ClickDishes. “In addition, through the app, patrons will complete their dining experience faster, ensuring more table turn over for restaurants.”
ClickDishes was cofounded by Alec Wang, Tim Li, Vlad Sarpe, and Vicki Zhou.
