Dining out is now On-Demand

Nowait joins Yelp

In 2016, we partnered with Yelp to connect tens of millions of consumers to our restaurant partners. Today, we are thrilled to announce that Yelp has acquired Nowait. Together, we’ll make even bigger strides in the restaurant industry by allowing guests to go more quickly from search and discovery, to dining at our partner restaurants.
