PHOENIX – Devour, the creator of the innovative food ordering marketplace DevourGO, is thrilled to announce its partnership with ItsaCheckmate, a leading first and third-party order aggregation and menu management provider. This collaboration introduces the ability for many enterprise and independent restaurant brands to attract and engage Gen-Z fans through digital community partnerships and gamified food ordering.
Through DevourGO, guests gain access to exclusive community-based promotions and menu items that cater to their appetite for unique digital experiences. The integration with ItsaCheckmate ensures that orders placed by these guests seamlessly integrate with the existing systems used by ItsaCheckmate customers, simplifying the onboarding process for restaurants.
This partnership directly addresses the challenges faced by restaurants, seeking to engage with the internet-native generations: finding the right approach and overcoming staff bandwidth limitations.
“Restaurant operators are eager to create compelling and innovative experiences to attract guests,” says Shelly Rupel, CEO of Devour. “Recognizing the growing popularity of web3 technology and gaming among younger Gen Y and Gen Z audiences, we saw a tremendous opportunity to create a bridge between them and the industry we deeply care about. Partnering with ItsaCheckmate allows restaurants to tap into this large new market even before understanding the technology at work.”
By joining the ItsaCheckmate Marketplace, DevourGo can seamlessly integrate with existing ItsaCheckmate customers allowing restaurant operators to manage their menus and receive digital orders in the same familiar manner as their other channels. “Maintaining operational consistency and minimizing staff training were key requirements for us,” says Chad Horn, COO of Devour. “ItsaCheckmate was the ideal partner to fulfill these needs at scale, as they share our commitment to ensuring operator convenience and enhancing the guest experience.”
“Web3 offers immense potential for the restaurant industry and we are excited to simplify the adoption of this technology for our customers,” said Stefan Hertzberg, SVP of Growth, at ItsaCheckmate. “ItsaCheckmate’s Marketplace provides our customers a seamless way to leverage cutting-edge technology and generate new business opportunities. The ability to allow a new generation of guests to use Cryptocurrency payments is just one example and we are thrilled to be working with Devour in this space.”
Devour currently operates in 17 markets across the United States and has been rapidly expanding. In an exciting development, our markets and restaurant partners will soon be accessible within the Alterverse gaming metaverse, starting in Q3 2023.
