Livebookings, the European leader in real-time reservations and online marketing services for restaurants, today announces that it processed a record 1.48 million covers in January. Saturday 21st January was Livebookings’ biggest booking day ever.
In contrast to the general economic and consumer pessimism in January, the UK restaurant industry continued to thrive with demand for innovative online reservation and marketing solutions remaining high. Livebookings delivered record cover growth in January, seating an impressive 84,000 diners in one day and reaffirming its European market leading position in real time online marketing and reservations services for restaurants.
Colin Tenwick, CEO, Livebookings said: “Despite an increasingly tough trading climate, restaurants continue to turn to online booking technology and mobile marketing to boost high levels of diners. Our service acts as a ‘recession-proof’ revenue stream for our restaurant partners – that’s why we continue to deliver record levels of covers every month, significantly more that our nearest competitor.”
The January success followings a record breaking year for Livebookings, which saw it seat over 1.4 million diners in December, generating £21 million worth of business for the restaurant industry. For more information on Livebookings, please go to http://www.livebookings.net.
