In early 2017 QikServe announced that it had secured £2.7M in a funding round led by Maven Capital Partners. The company is now relocating its headquarters from Codebase, the UK’s largest technology incubator, to nearby Randolph House in Edinburgh’s West End.
The move will give the company over 3,000 feet of office space in the city’s prestigious west end and provide space for ongoing growth. QikServe involved its staff in the bespoke office design to ensure the creation of a positive working environment, within Edinburgh’s active technology scene.
Founded in 2011 by entrepreneurs Daniel Rodgers and Ronnie Forbes, QikServe’s platform enables customers to discover restaurants, check-in to tables, browse menus, place orders, save and redeem loyalty points or vouchers, and pay their bill directly from their mobile phone or tablet.
Rodgers told us: “A key driver behind our success is our integration with some of the world’s biggest hospitality technology players, like Oracle, which means that we are now in a much better position to grow globally than other companies, who only focused on developing their own apps.”
“Being based in Edinburgh is a strength for technology entrepreneurs and investors alike. The city has always had a great pool of talent due to the number of universities and colleges here, making it a great place for companies to set up in, but that talent is also now leading to a real spike in entrepreneurialism, with innovative new companies springing up all the time.”
