Twice As Hungry with Mark Calabro and Shannon Hautot

  • 16 years on from starting the successful Australian point of sale system, OrderMate, Mark Calabro and Shannon Hautot have invested over $2 million in seed funding for another tech startup, HungryHungry.
  • OrderMate put Mark and Shannon in a strong position to understand the retail market providing point of sale software to over two and a half thousand Australian venues and has processed more than three billion dollars worth of food orders – that’s a lot of data. 
  • The subsequent knowledge that that’s brought, now has Mark and Shannon driving this new online ordering platform and QR ‘order at the table’ tech, with HungryHungry.
  • This is an interesting wave in mid-market retail at the moment, that previous guests Stevan Premutico and Kim Teo are also acting on. 
  • If you’re in hospitality retail – tech or ops – this is one to pay close attention to.

Scribbling on a napkin made Stevan Premutico a multi-millionaire.

While contemplating digital changes sweeping the hotel industry during the GFC, Stevan drafted in red in a cafe in London. That was the day that Dimmi was born.

After revolutionising the Australian restaurant industry, the popular reservation platform was acquired by TripAdvisor in 2015.

Now, as one of Australia’s leading tech entrepreneurs, Stevan is back to launch me&u – a customer ‘tap, order and pay’ application.

More on that in the episode.
