BigDish launches booking app in Basingstoke, Exeter, Brighton

Website upgrade begins, with new functions added including reviews and social media sharing
BigDish's app helps restaurants attract customers during quiet periods

BigDish PLC (LON:DISH) will launch its restaurant booking app in Basingstoke, Exeter and Brighton in the next few weeks.

The company, whose app and website aim to help restaurants fill spare capacity by offering discounts during quieter times, has also kicked off a process to upgrade its website. Management previously revealed that the upgrade would add review functions, reservation sharing on social media, search-by-region capabilities and flagging-up of new restaurants.

BigDish has also changed its reporting currency to pounds sterling from US dollars and has moved its year-end to 31 March, into line with its UK subsidiary.

Taking place on or around 30 April, the expansion into Basingstoke and Exeter is part of the London-listed company’s first and second territories, respectively. The move into Brighton, expected in May, will be the first location in Territory 3.

"We are extremely happy with the speed of the progress being made at BigDish,” said chief executive Sanj Naha.

He added: “We can't wait to watch BigDish continue to expand and develop over the coming months.”

Shares in BigDish rose 7% to 2.25p in early trading on Thursday.
