December, Dublin – Flipdish, a digital ordering platform, has today welcomed the results of Deloitte’s Fast 50 Awards, in which the company takes the second spot in this year’s listing, up one place on last year’s awards. The Fast 50 is one of Ireland’s foremost technology award programmes. Now in its 22nd year, it ranks companies based on their growth and revenue over the last four years and celebrates innovation and entrepreneurship in Ireland’s indigenous technology sector.
This year’s Fast 50 awards showcases the companies that not only survived the pandemic but thrived during the turbulent year that has had significant impact on companies across all sectors. Flipdish’s mission has always been to help food business owners take control of their business and during the pandemic their priority was to enable business owners to survive and thrive with Flipdish technology. Through Flipdish’s offering of QR Code Order & Pay technology and Kiosks, food business owners were able to stay in line with government guidelines while also catering for their customers’ needs. This is already on top of Flipdish’s other offerings of online ordering through branded websites and apps which continue to be used by food businesses across Ireland, Europe and the US.
Despite a turbulent year, Flipdish has certainly thrived and continues to do so through the pandemic. Starting 2021 with a €40 million fundraise in February, while the company’s revenue increased 10x since its funding round in 2018. During 2021 Flipdish also made some notable partnerships, one being with the iconic Bewleys cafe on Grafton Street in Dublin. As well as this, Flipdish has seen some significant growth this year particularly in the US market which has grown 10x and the UK market that has grown 4x. Additionally Flipdish has been hiring at pace and today has more than 300 employees.
The company was also awarded the inaugural Scale Up award. This award is for a company that has demonstrated an impressive ability to scale up and expand overseas over the last four years.
Speaking on the results today, CEO and co-founder Conor McCarthy said ‘Flipdish are once again thrilled to be listed as one of Deloitte’s Fast 50 companies. We are also delighted to move from number three to number two which only reconfirms the continued acceptance the hospitality sector has when it comes to new technology’
‘I also want to congratulate all those other companies who have been listed. This is a great achievement for us all. This year has been hard across all sectors but the hospitality sector has experienced and is continuing to experience significant loss when dealing with the pandemic. At Flipdish, we are hoping to be an essential partner as part of the sector’s recovery and ensuring as many hospitality businesses remain open across Ireland and prosper in 2022 and beyond.’
