Glance Technologies (CSE:GT.CN) has announced it has entered into an agreement to offer its mobile payment app for restaurants and merchants, Glance Pay, at the Ricky’s Group of Family-Style Restaurants.
As quoted in the press release:
The Ricky’s Group currently has 90 locations across Canada and is growing. The 90 locations are comprised of Ricky’s All Day Grill, Ricky’s Country Restaurant and Ricky’s Cafe. The same group that owns Ricky’s also owns Fatburger Canada.
“Ricky’s is committed to engaging with industry leading advances and technologies that will continuously improve our operations and guest experience. Glance Pay’s mobile payment solution gives Ricky’s the clear advantage in becoming even more operationally efficient while respecting both our guests’ time and the demand for fast and secure mobile payments,” says Stacey Hansson, Senior Vice President, Ricky’s.
Glance Pay has been growing rapidly since its launch 11 months ago. To date there are over 230 locations signed up to use the Glance Pay app. The mobile payments industry is already valued at $5.5 trillion in China and expected to grow rapidly in North America over the next 3 years as well. Glance is well positioned to be a leader in mobile payments with a strong presence in Canada and intentions announced for US expansion.
