Founder of Bongo's Bingo launches ordering and social planning app Glug

The co-founder of Bongo's Bingo, Joshua Burke, is launching Glug, an app to support the reopening of pubs and bars, in July.

Burke has been creating Glug with Carl Whiteside and Lewis Allbones over the past three years. They also welcome David Gallimore to the team, who has helped to create large-scale marketing-tech platforms for many of the UK's leading hospitality companies, SMEs and independents

Glug allows guests to browse local bars and restaurants, order food and drink in advance and pay through the app.

"We have raised £250,000 of investment already," said Joshua Burke. "We are launching Glug to support the hospitality industry as bars, restaurants and pubs across the UK reopen. We work with many of them through Bongo's Bingo and the wider hospitality circles we are all part of. And with David on board, we have got his many years of vital experience in this area too. Glug is something we all passionately believe in.

"We have seen what works and what doesn't and we believe Glug will be the definitive way forward. It will help businesses and their customers by linking them together."

Gallimore added: "I will be working with Josh and the team in the capacity of board advisor to help support Glug's growth with my technical and industry expertise and experience. Having previously been involved in bringing very similar technical products to market and scaling them to national level, I am well-placed to advise on key consideration, industry dynamics and help the company to build relationships and avoid common pitfalls as they grow."

Glug will launch on 1 July.
