Flipdish Extends Food Ordering Service To Include Hotels

Dublin-based digital food ordering solution for independent eateries Flipdish has announced that it has extended its services to include hotel kitchens in Ireland to assist in setting up hotel restaurants for online orders and deliveries during the COVID-19 crisis.

“A Huge Difference”

Among the first hotels that have signed up for Flipdish’s services is Scholars Townhouse Hotel of Drogheda, Co. Louth, the owner of which, Mark McGowan, stated, “When we started offering the takeaway service, there was only one other eatery in the area offering takeaway at the time, so we didn’t know how people would respond. Fortunately, people are really enjoying the option of being able to ‘eat out, but eat in’ that ordering from us is affording them, and it’s great to have that community support.

“Flipdish helped us get up and running almost immediately, so we were able to get our business back up and running as quickly as possible, which has made a huge difference for us.”

Flipdish is also working with several other hotels around Ireland, including Co. Kerry’s Killarney Plaza Hotel.

“Adapt And Change”

Flipdish CEO Conor McCarthy commented, “The current situation is forcing near-term and mid-term change to both consumer behaviour and restaurant operations. We are beginning to see how willing the traditional dine-in sector is  to adapt and change how the business is run, which might be the difference between survival and failure of the larger hotels and their ability to keep staff employed.”
