Toronto-born mobile pickup app Ritual announced today it has expanded internationally into London, England and Sydney, Australia and plans for expansion into Europe.
Ritual will also be in more than 40 North American cities and aims to more than triple its restaurant count by the end of 2019. Included in those plans are Canadian cities, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa, Montreal and Edmonton.
Since launching in Toronto in 2014, and in the United States in 2017, Ritual has developed a robust and scalable platform providing convenience, value and choice to both consumers and restaurants.
Ritual has experienced exponential growth, first crossing over a million orders in less than two years and now processing over a million orders in under two months.
Ritual provides restaurants with turnkey mobile ordering technology, which gives consumers a convenient solution to discover, order and pick up their meals – specifically for coffee and lunch orders.
Using Ritual’s social group ordering feature, Piggyback, over 100,000 teams globally connect and collaborate on lunch and coffee orders and pick up orders for busy teammates.
With Piggyback, restaurants are able to leverage existing customers who pick up and bring back orders for teammates, which increases order size up to 4x due to social features, ease of use and transparent pricing structure.
To celebrate city launches nationwide, Ritual will be hosting week-long Ritual Food Festivals, the equivalent of Restaurant Week but for takeout restaurants, which allow users to sample and discover the best of their neighborhood at a special price. Ritual ran 10 food festivals at the end of 2018 and is planning on running over 100 in 2019.
