A new app will allow customers to pre-order food and drink from high street restaurants and coffee chains.

Swoope, currently live in Birmingham, is working with independent bars and food-to-go retailers like Costa Coffee to enable customers to order and pay ahead for meals and receive a notification when they are ready to be collected.

“In the modern world, people aren’t used to waiting for things. TV, films, and music can all be accessed at the touch of a button, parcels can be delivered within the hour, and money can be transferred instantly,” said Swoope CEO Lee Nazari.

“The app allows users to search the extensive list of independent partners on the app to choose the perfect place for their lunch and place an order directly from their phone.”

The app also offers loyalty rewards, instant communication with venues and a table service feature that allows users to order from their phones for their restaurant table.
