Edinburgh based global restaurant reservation leader, EVEVE, announced today that it booked its 1,000,000thdiner this weekend. The historic reservation was booked at London’s critically acclaimed La Buvette. The individual who booked this reservation will receive a dinner for two at La Buvette, courtesy of EVEVE and La Buvette will receive one month of complimentary EVEVE service as part of EVEVE’s celebration of this success story.
“Booking our 1,000,000th diner online is a particularly special milestone for us,” said Timothy Ryan, President of EVEVE’s North America operations.” “The 1,000,000th diner underlines the consumer and restaurant demand for our product, and could only have been achieved with robust technology.”
“When we launched in Edinburgh in 2007, people thought we were mad, but two restaurateurs, Gavin Ferguson and Tony Crolla, saw the long term picture and got firmly behind us,” said EVEVE’s CEO Timothy Ryan. “Their support and guidance was instrumental in the development of our product. Tony Crolla owns Edinburgh’s famous Vittoria and La Favorita restaurants, while Gavin Ferguson was a previous owner at Skippers and the Waterfront, who now owns the Waterside Bistro in Haddington.”
Today 93% of Eveve’s reservations come from outside Scotland, but the company has not forgotten its Scottish roots. “We are still headquartered in Edinburgh, with the global development team located here, not to mention our European support operations” notes Timothy John Ryan, CEO. “We hope that companies like ours, which are exporting from Scotland, can help the local economy by bringing quality skilled jobs and revenues into Edinburgh”.
“Eveve appreciates the incredible support extended to us by our restaurant partners,” said Ryan.
“Our cutting edge technology has enabled restaurateurs to run their businesses more efficiently and profitably.”
“In addition to our long standing relationships with restaurants in Europe and Australasia we now operate in 10 U.S. states and Canada,” added Ryan. “Restaurant owners across North America can look forward to solid growth in our service provision. We look forward to the next million diners and remain committed to continually improving the user experience. ”
