The mobile order and pay provider, Fetch My Order (Fetch) has exceeded its seed funding target of £150k by raising £1m including investment from entrepreneur Andrew Harman of Strive Capital.
Harman said, “We’ve been looking at the potential of Fetch over the last few months and are incredibly excited about the opportunities it will create in the hospitality sector.
'The recent pandemic has propelled the need for new technology solutions and Fetch sits at the forefront of this movement. Fetch will not only give peace-of-mind for guests but will also provide hospitality venues with the means to deliver a seamless customer experience.
He continued, “The instant appeal of Fetch was that it would allow me to bring my knowledge and experience within IT, business and hospitality into one venture. I passionately believe we can make a real difference and help aid the recovery of the hospitality industry. I look forward to working with the board and the wider team to create an exciting future together.'
Following the deal, Fetch plans to further develop their technology which has already seen them incorporate instant ordering through App Clips, so customers can tap “n” go without the need for downloading the app. They can also Open a Tab (a UK first), and be located with precise geo locating technology on premises, eliminating the need for table numbers.
Jason Jefferys, Co-Founder and CEO, said, “We’re delighted to have received such considerable investment and that others see the potential in Fetch. Strive Capital has made a significant investment in Fetch and Andrew has been hugely successful with his other tech businesses. He brings a lot of experience and guidance to help us succeed in our mission to be the number one order and payment solution.
'This year has been extremely challenging for the hospitality sector and I am proud to be working with such a brilliant team at Fetch that is developing world class technology solutions to help businesses do more with less. This investment will help bring these solutions to the market even faster.'
