Bitemojo Connects People and Places Through Food, Says Founder
The app lets users select, navigate to, and pay for unique, off-the-beaten-path food experiences
Weiss-Gadish spoke on Wednesday at a conference on tourism and technology held by Calcalist in Tel Aviv.
Bitemojo, which was founded in 2016 by Weiss-Gadish and Michael Weiss, develops an app that can be used to select, navigate to, and pay for unique, off-the-beaten-path food experiences. Users choose a destination, a guiding narrative, what foods they’d like to try and how much they want to spend, Weiss-Gadish explained. The app does the rest. “To us, it is more important that tourists learn about the place,” she said. “It is not about filling up when you are hungry or about going to Michelin star restaurants. It is about the cultural experience.”
Bitemojo, which is free to use, has 40,000 users, Weiss-Gadish told Calcalist. The app offers service in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Barcelona, Berlin, Rome, Budapest, Ljubljana, Lisbon, Madrid, Bangkok, and Singapore. Bitemojo is set to be available in Amsterdam, New York, and Tokyo before the end of the year. The company employs seven people in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
