RDE, Inc. — Partnering with Restaurants to Thrive During America’s Reopening!
RDE is proud to own and operate America’s largest restaurant-focused discount brand.
The global pandemic devastated America’s restaurants, particularly the independent restaurants we all love. The Great Reopening is a massive opportunity to revitalize the restaurant industry as people will be eager to go out and dine in person again.
Restaurants will recover to earlier levels quickly. The Covid relief bill passed by Congress dedicates $28.6 billion to restaurants so they can prepare for diners to return. And it provided at least $1,400 to most Americans who will use some of that money to dine out.
Restaurant.com will help restaurants find diners. We partner with restaurants to bring discounts to diners. Our restaurant customers control the entire process, so they can make the discounts part of a complete marketing plan to fill their tables as diners return to the restaurants they love.
