Glug App will revolutionise how we order food and drinks in restaurants and bars this summer.
The co-founder of Bongo’s Bingo, Joshua Burke, is launching his brand-new venture in July. The Glug App is an innovative free app to order food and drink in advance, connect users with venues and plan social time with friends and family. Benefits of the launch version of the app include:
- Full menus to order from through mobile devices, computers and tablets
- Reducing queues with a quicker and more efficient service
- Maintains safe social distancing measures – for example, minimising the time spent waiting for staff to serve your table
- No cards or cash – everything is ordered and paid for through the app, with less contact
- Helps brands communicate directly with customers
Later versions of Glug will include many more exciting features.
With co-founders Carl Whiteside and Lewis Allbones, the trio have been working on their project for 3 years, identifying several crucial ways to improve how customers engage with the vast and varied hospitality industry across the country.
They also welcome David Gallimore to the team, who has helped to create large-scale marketing-tech platforms for many of the UK’s leading hospitality companies, SMEs and independents.
The Glug App will bring everything into one place with thousands of venues listed. It works for every kind of hospitality business, from the smallest countryside pub to the biggest nightclubs, live music venues or high-end eateries, to independent cafes, delis, intimate bars, bakeries and high street chains. Glug have been speaking to owners and operators across the UK, using this feedback to help refine the app.
As social distancing is gradually relaxed, in the coming weeks the hospitality industry will open its doors again and face new challenges in the new Covid-19 normal. Glug will help many businesses adapt successfully to these unprecedented changes.
Glug will soon be ready to launch. “It’s been difficult having to pause our physical Bongo’s Bingo shows, but we have remained creative with our live streams and there’s more exciting news to come there soon. Glug is launching during a very difficult time for the UK – and the world, too – and especially the hospitality industry, but we believe it will connect people back with the places they loved going to before all of this terrible stuff happened. We are in talks with lots of businesses who are signing up to be a part of Glug.”
