In only a few weeks, Google has driven nearly 50,000 customers to our restaurant clients, which has resulted in over 21,000 orders.

ChowNow, the leading online ordering and marketing platform for restaurants, announced today a partnership with Google that gives customers the ability to order directly from a restaurant’s Google business profile — enabling its over 5,000 restaurant clients to tap into the growing mobile food ordering market. When a customer Googles a restaurant from their mobile device, they can now “place an order” from the restaurant’s Google business profile and navigate right to the restaurant’s menu.

Today’s food ordering restaurant customer is on mobile, with 75% of consumers choosing a restaurant based on mobile search results and 64% of mobile restaurant searchers converting within an hour.* ChowNow is positioning restaurants to take advantage of these statistics and turn their mobile searches into transactions.

“We’re excited to equip our restaurants with the discovery power of Google search and make it easier than ever for their customers to place orders,” said Christopher Webb, CEO and co-founder of ChowNow. “In only a few weeks, Google has driven nearly 50,000 customers to our restaurant clients, which has resulted in over 21,000 orders.”

The release of this feature supports ChowNow’s ongoing mission of providing independent restaurants with access to top technology, giving them a competitive edge against bigger brands and offering yet another way for customers to place orders and for restaurants to grow their sales.
