Deliverect to offer social media ordering after UAE's ChatFood acquisition

Deliverect, an online ordering software company for the restaurant industry, has acquired ChatFood, an e-commerce platform for the F&B sector.

With the acquisition, Deliverect will offer customers a one-stop digital platform which can help improve both in-restaurant dining and online delivery by giving the restaurant industry a unified solution to enable growth and improve customer experiences, through social, dine-in QR, and direct channel ordering, as well as online food delivery.

Deliverect is used in over 6,500 locations in the UK, equating to about 15% of its global footprint. It works with brands across restaurants, chain restaurants, and dark kitchens including: Caffè Nero; Pret; Pizza Express; and Poke House.

Established in 2018, ChatFood was founded in the Gulf region with more than 3,000 food service locations using its technology. ChatFood co-founders Benjamin Mouflard and Vini Rodrigues will remain with Deliverect, leading further growth and expansion. The company's UK customers include Ben's Cookies and Pizza Express.
