Resy, the restaurant reservations and technology platform is expanding its U.S. market footprint to include Nashville this summer. Used by hundreds of award-winning restaurants, Resy’s expansion includes the following Nashville restaurants: Husk Nashville, City House, Little Octopus, Butcher & Bee, Kuchnia + Keller, Two Ten Jack, and Hemingway’s.
“We remain sharply focused on providing diners with a selection of the country’s best restaurants,” states Resy CEO and co-founder Ben Leventhal. “With the launch of New Orleans, Nashville and Portland, we will increase our ability to meet the growing demands of Resy users in critical U.S. markets. We look forward to elevating the restaurant dining experience in these amazing food cities.”
Beloved for its ease of use for both consumers and businesses alike, Resy works exclusively with more than 1,000 restaurants in over 70 U.S. cities, seats 500K+ diners per week (seating over 15 million diners since its inception in 2014), has expanded into 6 new markets over the last 12 months and counts more than 1.2 million users, marking significant advancements in the company’s growth and market share. In addition, Resy has a 5% global no-show rate, an industry low.
Resy’s mission is to use technology to redefine hospitality by offering a cutting edge real-time cloud-based system with flat pricing, resetting industry expectations about how much value restaurants should expect from technology partners. Resy’s Hospitality Board, which includes representatives from the best hospitality companies in the world, works in close consultation with the Resy team as they build features like Notify, a real-time fully automated waiting list; live text messaging between host stand and guests; and ResyPay, a fully integrated paperless check payment system.
“Resy offers a service that makes the reservation process more intuitive, user-friendly and hospitable for both the restaurant and the guest,” states Kenny Lyons, Director of Hospitality and Performance for Neighborhood Dining Group. “Nashville is a very young and energetic city and we see a lot of that same energy in the team at Resy. They’re changing the restaurant industry as we know it and we look forward to making the switch.”
Consumers can download the Resy app for free, available on both iOS and Android, to make and change reservations, pay their check, and manage their dining profiles.
