Takeaway platforms have made it easy to enjoy our favourite meals, but they’ve made life tough for the restaurants we love.
Current platforms demand that restaurants pay disproportionate fees, while dictating control over data, pay-out, client relations, loyalty and contact. It’s a stitch-up that results in higher costs for consumers and restaurants.
Bistroo puts an end to this, by providing a platform where businesses are back in control.
We offer better user experience, lower transaction costs and a fairer infrastructure. Our job is to provide the tools, insights and support to facilitate a direct-2-consumer relationships for our merchants.
We facilitate, never dictate We've created a platform that facilitates the connection between restaurants, food merchants and consumers, instead of controlling it. Merchants are in full control of their payments, product selection, orders, advertising, and analytics. They can speak directly with their customers and are paid out instantly when orders are received.
Our operational product launched on March 3rd 2020 within the Netherlands and has over 20k active and recurring users, generating 250k USD platform turnover monthly, one-year after the platform was launched. Expansion (inter)nationally is on the horizon, with penetration of the Belgium market by the end of 2021.
The utility will become globally available through the launch of the Bistroo.com instance at a later date.BIST is the network’s utility token that is used for:
