Provider of online restaurant bookings, OpenTable has confirmed plans to launch in Australia.
The platform, which has been operating for 17 years, has a network of more than 33,000 foodservice venues across the US, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Mexico and the UK.
It will go live in Australia in mid-December and has already signed up high profile diners including Rockpool, ARIA, Otto Ristorante, Jamie’s Italian and MoVida.
Adam Clarke, managing director, APAC said OpenTable’s expansion into Australia marks an exciting milestone for the brand.
“Whether it’s at a caf, neighbourhood bistro or hatted restaurant, Aussies love to dine out and we’re committed to empowering what that experience means for people.
“OpenTable’s growth has been driven by our ability to develop products that cater for the changing needs of restaurants and diners. Here in Australia, we will continue to innovate by providing insight into dining trends and behaviours, and building on all we have learned over the past two decades,” he said.
OpenTable will bring with it its Connect and Guest Centre restaurant management products, as well as the recently acquired ResPAK table and guest management solution.
