Founded last year and based in Herzliya, a town in central Israel, Order.Chat lets users automatically book a restaurant table by conversing with a Facebook chatbot. The service operates on a 24-7 basis and automatically contacts the requested restaurant, sending a confirmation or suggesting an alternative if the restaurant is fully booked. Users can either ask to reserve a table at a specific restaurant or request recommendations for a certain type of restaurant in a specific city. Currently, the service only operates in Israel and intends to expand globally, according to the statement.
