Restimo, a 2020 Venture Program graduate, raises funding for foreign expansion

Polish startup Restimo, a graduate of the 2020 edition of the EIT Digital Venture Program, has raised €255,000 to develop its RestHub application for the catering industry.

Backers of the company include EIT Digital and business angels Małgorzata Sitkowska, Nicolas Jedraszak and Michał Zawiasa, who successfully developed their own foodtech businesses and will support Restimo in further development.

Resthub is an all-in-one solution that allows restaurants to manage the entire ordering process in one place, integrating food delivery platforms, courier companies and POS (Point of Sale) systems.

"While working at Glovo's headquarters in Barcelona, I noticed how challenging it is for restaurants to handle multiple tablets. Order management, menu updates or reporting separately for each application used to take waiters many additional hours and even days of work per month. We have simplified it to a few seconds," says Arek Bielecki, co-founder of Restimo.

Instead of having to deal with up to a dozen different systems and devices on a daily basis, with RestHub waiters can manage everything via a single tablet.

Restimo serves restaurant chains such as North Fish, Makarun, Charlotte and many others and is present in over 25 cities in Poland.

The acquired capital will fund further product development, expand the sales and customer service team, and support the marketing of Resthub.

The company is also preparing for foreign expansion, targeting the entire region of Central and Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.

"14 Polish companies have been founded to date as a result of the support from EIT Digital's Venture Program, and it's great to see a company such as Restimo using that support as a springboard for subsequent growth," says Mirko Tadic, EIT Digital Venture Program Lead.

"We are glad that such experienced entrepreneurs are joining our group of investors. Their industry experience and contacts will allow us to achieve our goals even faster," adds Tomasz Marcińczyk, co-founder of Restimo.
