Hospitality tech group HungryHungry and MOBI announce merger

Both plans to expand to the US.

HungryHungry and MOBI have merged to create a new powerhouse in the local market and to take on new markets, in particular the USA.

The new company combines HungryHungry's expertise in hospitality-focused software with MOBI's enterprise-grade mobile technology solutions, and services over 4,000+ venues across 15 countries including Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA.

The new entity creates a unique combination of consumer-facing technology to drive new customers for venues while also offering a white-label technology platform that allows brands to effectively engage with customers and generate lasting brand loyalty for their brand.

With Mobi founder Tarik Mallet having exited the business in 2022, the new company will be led by HungryHungry Co-Founders Shannon Hautot and Mark Calabro.

“As we join forces with MOBI we look forward to the next chapter including the launch of our game-changing payments product, HungryPay - a product which leans into a service-centric industry that is hospitality, whilst having product market fit for countries like the US which are all about staff taking orders and tipping,” Mark Calabro, Co-Founder and Head of Partnerships, said.

“We share a genuine desire to create a powerful, sustainable market leader in the hospitality sector, that will act as a growth engine to stimulate the industry, whilst continuing to lead with innovation and integrity. Together with MOBI, we are better positioned than ever to innovate, scale, and meet the evolving needs of the global hospitality industry, both SMB and Enterprise, with big plans to sprint past our competitors,” Shannon Hautot, Co-Founder and CEO, said.
