Restaurant Associates Venues, part of Compass Group UK&I, is to launch its first digital-only restaurant at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, the UK’s largest zoo.
Launching in late July, Compass Group’s technology will bring the Time 2 Eat app to visitors and allow guests to browse menus and select final orders to dine in at the Base Camp restaurant on site.
A new all-day menu has been introduced for summer 2021, including a kid’s menu and a wide range of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Steve Chandler, managing director of Restaurant Associates Venues said: “It’s been a pleasure working alongside ZSL Whipsnade Zoo to support their digital transformation. Their ethos to take guest satisfaction to the next level matches our own and we hope the Time 2 Eat technology will support this philosophy and propel this further.”
Chris Webb, commercial manager ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, said, “At ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, we are focussed on delivering delicious, good quality food for the whole family, and with Restaurant Associates Venues we’ve made that even easier now through the new Time 2 Eat app.
“Making lunch time easy and enjoyable for families is essential and the new contactless restaurant will allow parents to order ahead of time and skip any queues when visiting the Zoo’s 10,000 animals – we expect they’ll go wild for the delicious menu on offer through the Time 2 Eat app.”
