Restaurant booking platform TheFork bids Australia goodbye
The company will shutter operations by 31 March.
Restaurant booking platform TheFork has announced that it will discontinue its operations in Australia starting 31 March.
Full press release below:
We have an important announcement to share regarding our services in Australia.
After careful consideration, we regret to inform you that TheFork will be discontinuing its operations in Australia. From March 31st, 2024, TheFork's local website and app will no longer be accessible.
We understand that this decision may come as a surprise, and we want to assure you that this was not a choice made lightly. Due to the significant impact the pandemic had on the global economy, particularly the hospitality industry, we therefore had to implement certain cost measures, which includes a reduction of TheFork's geographical footprint.
You have until March 31st, 2024, to redeem your Yums. Once this date passes, any unused points will automatically expire and will become inaccessible.
During this period, our services will remain fully operational, and you will be able to continue booking at your favourite restaurants with TheFork until 31st March 2024.
Should you have any additional questions, please visit our FAQ here or reach out to our dedicated support team at [email protected].
Thank you for your trust throughout the last 15 years and most importantly, for supporting local restaurants.
