The Fast-Expanding Mobile Self-Service Technology App Makes Waves with Partnerships at Six Hawaii Restaurant Concepts
The rapidly expanding restaurant and consumer app company, Beluga Technology, has announced its newest partnerships with six restaurant concepts across Hawaii. The pioneering Beluga Eats app dramatically streamlines the end-to-end consumer dining experience and empowers customers to engage with restaurant staff safely, with convenience and confidence. The new partnerships were announced at the Hawaii Hotel and Restaurant show that took place on March 30-31 at the Hawaii Convention Center. The Hawaii launch restaurant partners, which include a mix of full service and QSR concepts, are Uncle Bo’s (with two locations in Honolulu and Haleiwa), Pancakes & Waffles (with two location in Honolulu and Aiea), Jucci Lucci, Ono Loco Tacos, Chopstick and Rice, and A Taste of New Orleans.
“From the beginning, our focus at Beluga has been to build a restaurant platform that helps both restaurants cope with low staff and empower customers to have more delightful and convenient dining experiences,” said Jim Yang, CEO and co-founder of Beluga Technology. “We are pleased with the market validation we’ve received in our flagship Bay Area and Las Vegas markets. In addition, we’re always searching for new ways to not only expand our brand and better meet our customers’ needs, but also to bring this new dining paradigm to new markets. We are excited about serving the Hawaii restaurant market, which has been experiencing a significant staffing shortage, with our launch in these six new restaurant concepts. In an era where restaurants are struggling to find servers and staff, and consumers are yearning for a better way to dine, Beluga is a step towards the future of dining.”
“Beluga was hugely helpful in helping us navigate through the COVID pandemic,” said Jason Sung, owner and operator of the Pancakes and Waffles chain of restaurants. “Beluga gave us an unexpected boost by powering online takeout orders when our dining rooms were shut down. Now that our dining rooms have reopened and customers are returning, Beluga is helping us scale with limited staff by enabling contactless ordering and payment in our dining rooms as well.”
The Beluga Eats app powers contactless dining for restaurants in the full service and QSR market segments. The platform aims to revolutionize the consumer dining experience, allowing guests to discover the best dishes in the area, choose a restaurant and scan a QR code upon being seated. From there, guests can view a fully interactive menu with photos of all dishes, see the most popular menu items (algorithmically driven by customer data), and order and pay right from their table. Guests can even ping restaurant staff if needed. This technology streamlines the end-to-end consumer dining experience, including personalized restaurant and meal recommendations, self-seating, promotions, meal ordering, payment and social sharing. The app is also every consumer’s restaurant loyalty membership wallet, earning and redeeming loyalty points at restaurants and discovering personalized offers and recommendations.
Upon downloading the Beluga Eats app, guests can receive $10 off their first order. Guests can download the mobile app here: https://beluga.kitchen/download.

Beluga enables customers to eat anywhere they want, anytime they want. The Beluga Eats app has revolutionized how guests order and pay for food. The founders aimed to create a new way for staff to engage with customers surrounding safety, simplicity, convenience, information, efficiency and dining personalization.
