ChowNow, the online ordering and marketing platform for restaurants, announced a partnership with Google that brings Google Wallet to thousands of independent restaurants across the United States.

All of ChowNow restaurant clients’ ordering apps have been updated to include Google Wallet at no additional cost, and all new restaurant clients will receive it as a standard feature.

“We continue to uphold our mission of helping independent restaurants compete with larger chains by providing them with technology that would be both difficult and cost-prohibitive for them to build themselves,” says Chris Webb, CEO of ChowNow.

With the addition of Google Wallet, rather than manually inputting their credit card number and billing address, customers with an Android phone can simply tap the “Buy with Google” button.

ChowNow aims to increase convenience and reduce ordering times, allowing restaurants to increase order volumes and create a more profitable to-go business.
