We're happy to announce Eat App's integration with Spades; a digital payment solution that allows customers to pay at table with a QR code before leaving. 

Key Takeaways

  • Hospitality is a term often used in the food service world.

  • Well-rounded establishments will be equally focused on delivering excellent service.

  • The global hospitality market experienced a growth of 7.0% in 2023.

  • Understand what hospitality is, its importance, and how to implement it in your operations.


"We are excited to partner with Spades to provide a quick and easy pay-at-table solution for restaurants. Our platform has always focused on improving the guest experience for diners, and now we can offer even more value by integrating with Spades to provide customers with a seamless digital payment solution," said Eat App CEO and Co-founder, Nezar Kadhem.

 With the Spades and Eat App integration, the benefits for restaurants are endless. Customers can now significantly improve a venue's capacity to increase tips and overall revenue.
