Another wave of Twin Cities restaurants have switched their online restaurant systems from Open Table to EVEVE. The newest restaurants include the two Sunset’s restaurants in Wayzata and Woodbury, Joe’s Garage, Fuji Ya, Rainbow, Jax’s Café and King and I Thai. These seven restaurants join some of the highest profile restaurants in the Midwest including Bar La Grassa, Hell’s Kitchen, Meritage and the 3 Twin Cities Barrio restaurants.
“Several other reservation entities have tried to compete with Open Table but none of them have succeeded the way we have in our initial U.S. test market,” said Tim Ryan, Director and President of EVEVE’s U.S. operations. “Our first foray into the U.S. has been an unprecedented success. We are now poised to become the lead challenger to Open Table in 2012,” said Ryan.
“In the U.S., Open Table charges more than double what they do in Europe,” said Ryan. “Twin Cities restaurants have grown tired of subsidizing Open Table’s expansion in Europe. We are also receiving very positive feedback to the fact we do not market other restaurants to their diners, said Ryan.” “Unlike Open Table, we realize that a restaurant’s customers belong to them and not to either Open Table or us.”
“We have also successfully helped restaurants deal with the concerns some of had regarding the possibility of their losing customers as a result of their transition to EVEVE, said Ryan.” “Those restaurants who switched to EVEVE are now seeing their online bookings increase by as much as 42% from their 2010 numbers when they were with Open Table,” said Ryan.
- Jax’s Café’s bookings are up 42%
- WA Frost’s are up 37%
- Hell’s Kitchen are up 21%
- Scuzi’s are up 12%
- Bar La Grassa’s are up 5%
“Twin Cities restaurants are giving us seven reasons for their decision to switch to us,” said Ryan. These factors include:
1. Cost savings
2. Maintain control over their brand
3. Retain control of their reservations
4. Stop losing reservations to their competitors
5. Manage tables exactly as individual restaurants want with EVEVE’s custom designed systems
6. Work with a provider that has worldwide support and financial stability
7. Partner with a company that uses cutting edge reservations system technology
An already established global technology company, EVEVE established its live reservations systems in 2007. EVEVE is a leading global supplier of live reservations systems and has relationships with approximately 1,100 restaurants worldwide.
