Hungry Hub, a Thailand restaurant reservation application launched three years ago, has taken the pole position in a television startup challenge, in position to win the Thb 1 million prize money up for grabs.
Hungry Hub CEO/co-founder Surasit Sachdev (Manveer Singh Sachdev) and his business partner Kamolporn (Bow) Thedratanawong gave programme guests and viewers a ‘taste’ of their application when they appeared on the latest show of Unicorn Startup television series.
Speaking in flawless Thai language, common with all most Thai Sikhs for whom it is their master language, Surasit was pretty animated when explaining how the system works.
“We have been working for three years and have failed before by growing only 10% per year,” he told the audience. “However we have learnt from our failure and now we have grown seven times in the last nine months.”
There’s no need to worry about how much you are going to pay at the end of your meal anymore. With Hungry Hub, you just have to book a table and you can enjoy a fixed price meal at top restaurants around Thailand. That is the commitment Hungry Hub gives to their app users.
Hungry Hub was founded in 2014 with the goal of providing convenience in the restaurant reservation process. However, in 2016, the company changed its vision to focus more on providing value added service to restaurants and diners by tackling the fixed price dining market, the company says on its website.
“We work with restaurants to come up with unique offers that allows the diners the capability to try new restaurants, or take their team out while controlling their budget,” it promises.
The other co-founders are Wannasiri (Belle) Aramwattananont, Matthew Fong and Ravidas Singh.
