Mobile Order Ahead

LevelUp Pairs With Smarter Takeout

LevelUp has announced a new partnership. Going forward, the restaurant mobile payments and loyalty firm will tie in with Smarter Takeout, an online and mobile ordering specialist.

The partnership ties LevelUp restaurant partners to additional options for takeout, delivery and catering.  And that benefit is reciprocal — Smarter Takeout restaurant’s partners can now tap into LevelUp Broadcast, which allows restaurants to broadcast live menus to new customers across the social and digital channels they prefer. Those channels include Yelp, Chase Pay, Amazon Alexa, Google Pay and Apple Pay.

Smarter Taekout’s current customer list includes Coco’s Bakery, Don Pablo’s, Sammy’s Pizza, and Zio’s Italian Kitchen, as well as some of the largest concessions and theaters in the New York City area — the Metropolitan Opera House, Empire State Building and The Rink at Rockefeller Center are all among clients they serve.

“Smarter Takeout’s online ordering expertise and innovative takeout, delivery, venue intermission ordering and catering solutions paired with our loyalty platform offers a win-win for operators and consumers alike,” said Seann Moriarty, head of strategic partnerships at LevelUp. “We’re all about simplifying operations for restaurants, and this partnership will do so across a number of diverse restaurant concepts.”

Trevor Seamann, founder and CEO at Smarter Takeout added, “We are excited to be partnering with LevelUp to bring greater convenience to consumers at their favorite restaurants through our joint solution. We look forward to working together with LevelUp to drive sales and order volume at our joint restaurant partners.”
