Restaurant reservation service Chope seats one-millionth diner in a year
July 26, 2012 by Terence LEE
Chope, a web and mobile restaurant reservation service, has announced in a press release that it has seated one million diners since its launch in June 2011. A quarter of its online reservations come in between 10pm and 10am.
In other recent moves, the startup has expanded into Hong Kong with the launch of Chope.com.hk, and partnered with Samsung to preload its app into all Galaxy SIII phones in Singapore. The Galaxy SIII, which is Samsung’s flagship phone, has become a hot-seller of late, generating 10 million units in sales worldwide. The app is also available on iOS.
The company offers diners a choice of about 150 restaurants. Some of the Singapore restaurants under Chope include: Pollen, Wild Honey, The White Rabbit, and Overeasy.
At least two other startups in Singapore have a similar business idea. Reserveit.sg was the first to come up with a mobile app that expands on their web offering. HungryGoWhere, which was recently acquired by SingTel, is also venturing into this space with TableDB.
