"No matter whether in the smallest village or in the big city - with the brand new WOGO app, users can easily find restaurants, cafés, pubs or clubs to their liking," explains Markus Wadl, founder and CEO of the Carinthian start-up WOGO, which operates internationally . The restaurant platform, which was previously online as a website, is now available as an app. Users can choose from over 300,000 restaurants in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Slovenia. This is just the beginning, however, as sales are only just starting and current bars, information and menus are being added. This provides an alternative to platforms such as Yelp or Foursquare, which are not familiar with regional conditions and preferences.

"Enjoyment and enjoyment of good food is a task that unites countries for us," emphasizes Wadl. “We don't believe in language barriers and support local tourism with WOGO, because the app is ideal for vacationers. The entire app is in four languages, so you can find all the information and all the important contents of the menu in English, Italian, Slovenian and German. "

New opportunities for gastronomy: Europe's largest platform with menu feature
"We act as a social and culinary interface between guest and restaurateur," Wadl explains another aspect of the WOGO app. With WOGO, every landlord can easily put their current menus, e.g. lunch and dinner menus, daily and weekly menus, menus, etc. online. Seconds later, the app user can find all the information on their smartphone. WOGO is the largest platform in Europe that offers this menu feature.
