Hungry Hub, a Thai-based restaurant reservation application, emerged as one of the winners at a major gathering of regional startups and e-commerce players in Singapore.
The Bangkok headquartered company emerged as the winner of the e-commerce segment at Echelon Asia Summit 2018, an event that brings together startups, investors, corporates, governments, tech ecosystem players and customers from Southeast Asia.
Hungry Hub is Thailand’s unique dining offer web/app which offers an exclusive fixed-price concept at normal a-la carte restaurants.
“Great week at the #echelon2018 won the e-commerce track for Hungry Hub!,” Hungry Hub co-founder/CEO Manveer Singh said in a social media update.
When contacted, Manveer told Asia Samachar that the company was now looking at expanding to new markets, with Singapore seen as one of the potential targets. At Echelon 2018, Hungry Hub is pitching for a US$500,000 seed funding.
How does it work? Hungry Hub allows you to book a table and enjoy a fixed price meal at top restaurants around Thailand, dishing out exclusive offers not available for walk-in or customers who call to reserve, the firm says.
Echelon is the flagship of Singapore-based e27 which positions itself as the go-to platform for news, community, events, talent and funding. The two-day event ended yesterday (20 June 2018).
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.
