Additional insights from the Dinova marketplace include an exceptional 19 percent YOY increase in the Healthcare vertical, 16 percent YOY increase in Consumer Discretionary companies and 14 percent YOY in the Information Technology vertical.
"Dinova's marketplace continues to thrive as we surpass the $5 billion milestone," said Vic Macchio, founder and CEO of Dinova. "Between the trends we're seeing in Fast-Casual and the increasing desire for unique and niche dining options, it is clear that restaurant diversity in our network is paying off."
As business dining spend increases, Dinova continues to add an increasingly diverse group of restaurants to its more than 14,000 restaurant partners nationwide. "We are thrilled to add Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar, Fadó Irish Pub, and Chaya to our growing marketplace," said Macchio.
"Part of the foundation of our culture has always been to partner with our local businesses and Dinova is a way for us to stay true to who we are while exposing our brand to new business guests," said Chris Simms, founder and CEO of Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar, a 19-unit casual dining chain operating in California, Nevada and Texas. "We are particularly excited for the opportunity to serve corporate card holders and offer them an exceptional dining experience and 'go to' place for meals during the work week. As a growing family founded restaurant group, we were looking for a partner that could grow with us as we expand into new markets and with Dinova's national presence, we are confident they are the right fit."
"In partnering with Dinova, we're glad we have an extended opportunity to help businessmen and women across the nation end a long day with great food, drink and a little banter," said John Piccirillo, director of marketing at Fadó Irish Pub. Fadó Irish Pub is a premier restaurant and pub with 13 locations across the U.S., and is known for its exceptional draft beer, creative cocktails, thoughtful dishes and embodiment of the Irish pub culture.
"We are excited to now have all three of our restaurants with Dinova, and feel that this partnership is a win-win for us to expand our base of business clientele," said Rachel Pattison, Marketing Manager of the Chaya Restaurant Group, a Japanese-fusion concept in San Francisco, Venice Beach and Downtown Los Angeles. "We look forward to cultivating a close relationship with the Dinova team in order to grow our business at all three locations."
