Chase announced Tuesday (Feb. 7) that customers will soon be able to use Chase Pay with HMSHost, the global restaurateur, and Parkmobile, which enables users to pay for parking in cities via an app.
In a press release, Chase said HMSHost operates close to 2,000 restaurant locations in greater than 80 North American airports and 99 motorway service centers. It also partners with greater than 300 brands, including California Pizza Kitchen, Loren Garcia TAPAS y Cocina and Starbucks. Chase Pay will be accepted at all HMSHost locations in the United States, and implementation will occur in the majority of these locations by the end of 2017, Chase said in the release.
“Implementing innovations to enhance the service we provide to travelers is a continual focus for HMSHost and access to digital payment options is an important part of meeting our guests’ needs,” said HMSHost President and CEO Steve Johnson in the press release. “We are excited about this partnership with Chase and making the checkout process more convenient for busy travelers.”
Starting in the second quarter of 2017, HMSHost locations will begin processing transactions on Chase’s closed-loop ChaseNet platform, establishing a point-to-point encrypted solution. The Chase Pay system adds another layer of security by tokenizing every transaction so that cardholders’ account numbers are never shared, Chase said in the release.
Chase customers will also soon be able to pay for parking from their phone via Parkmobile. “We know how valuable our customers’ time is when on the road for work or play,” said Jennifer Roberts, president of Strategic Alliances and Loyalty at Chase, who leads the Chase Pay team, in the press release. “We are excited that these new partnerships will make our customers’ travel that much easier.”
