(“BigDish” or the “Company”)
BigDish Plc (LON:DISH), a food technology company that operates a yield management platform for restaurants, is pleased to announce it has received the funds from the placing as announced on 6 June 2019 and to provide an update on operations.
BigDish has received the £2.1 million from the placing, directly from the investor, a family office in California, USA. As previously announced, the Company is fully funded to 2021. This will transform BigDish from its current eight locations to being present all over the United Kingdom.
New territories, Brighton and Reading will soon be going live on the BigDish platform. The small delay to the schedule was due to the Company’s focus on the recruitment strategy. The recruitment of new Territory Managers is progressing with one new territory manager for Territory 3 starting soon. The Company will spend July and August focusing on recruitment and account management in Territory 1 and Territory 2. BigDish expects to have all Territory Managers in place across the UK by 1 September 2019. Additionally, particular attention will be paid to expanding Brighton after it launches.
The partnership with the tech platform is still expected to proceed, despite minor delays.
Sanj Naha, CEO commented:
“We are extremely pleased with the progress that is being made in expanding BigDish. We look forward to the coming months with the recruitment of our new Territory Managers and the new locations on the BigDish App.
“The new funding enables the acceleration across every part of the Company. We are also planning an extremely exciting media initiative which we look forward to sharing more on in due course. The platform, as it stands today, will be unrecognisable by 2021. We look forward to keeping the market informed over the coming months, the future looks bright.”
