TGI Fridays is dipping their toes into the world of tech and social media to make dinner a heck of a lot more convenient for patrons. In a new partnership with Conversable, the restaurant chain will now allow guests to reserve a spot at the restaurant through Facebook Messenger.
The restaurant says this will be a first for the industry.
Fridays’ customers can interact with the restaurant 24/7 starting now through Facebook Messenger. Along with making reservations at select restaurants, they can also ask questions about the chain and use Messenger to find local TGI Fridays locations.
Conversable is a conversational platform that provides users with automated one-on-one response flows through message channels. By Fall, the company will allow guests to order food online and get delivery through social media.
This will definitely come in handy on Saturday nights. We hate waiting for tables when there’s so much food to be eaten.
