AI Driven Restaurant Platform, Malou, Secures $10 Million in Funding for Global Expansion

Malou, a creative firm that uses artificial intelligence to power restaurant platforms, made significant progress by raising $10 million in a recent fundraising round. With a particular focus on the US and the Middle East, the funds will be used to thrust worldwide expansion, strengthen product functionality, and drive quicker growth within France.

With its state-of-the-art AI-powered platform, Malou, founded in 2021, stands out as it attempts to transform the digital restaurant environment. Malou has emerged as a disruptive force in the restaurant IT industry due to its array of services designed to improve online reputation, visibility, and customer engagement.


The platform acts as a central center, allowing social media profiles, listing and delivery systems, and a restaurant’s Google page to all be smoothly integrated. With the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation, Malou analyzes evaluations from customers, creates social media content, and keeps consistent data to enhance restaurants’ online exposure, SEO, and social media interaction.

According to Malou, the comprehensive approach of its platform effectively handles and improves every aspect of the relationship between eateries and their patrons. Malou wants to be the go-to business for eateries trying to succeed in the digital age, from initial discovery and conversion to continuing customer satisfaction monitoring and loyalty development. In addition, the organization offers customized support based on each restaurant’s particular requirements and stage of development.

Malou has successfully brought on board a wide spectrum of clients, including individual businesses, well-known food chains, celebrity chefs, and prominent restaurant groups. With an extensive portfolio of 2,000 restaurants spread over 12 countries, Malou has an impressive track record. The Bagatelle Group and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc. are two of its well-known clientele.


Key investors in the most recent fundraising round included Jim Texier, the former chief product officer of Lightspeed Management Co. LLC, Bertrand Jelensperger, the inventor of The Fork, and henQ Inc. Lead investor henQ partner Mick Mackaay commended Malou’s team for creating a “hyper-verticalized” system that automatically improves every facet of a restaurant’s web presence, hence increasing accessibility for owners who might not be marketing gurus.

According to Mackaay, “The team has further impressed us with their ability to get this solution into the hands of many restaurants, a notoriously hard target group to sell to.” The funding infusion is anticipated to catapult Malou to new heights as it continues to reshape the restaurant technology scene globally.
