Intel Capital leads $13.5m financing for restaurant tablet system maker E la Carte


e la carte tabletIntel Capital has led a $13.5m Series B financing round for tablet-based restaurant food ordering system E la Carte.

Romulus Capital also took part in the round, which the company said it would use to support its rapidly-growing team, expand deployments of its Presto system and improve the product.

E la Carte’s Presto tablets sit on restaurant tables allowing customers to order and pay without needing to get the attention of a member of staff.

The company says its tablets help restaurants achieve ten per cent sales boosts, seven-minute faster table turnarounds and a nine times increase in loyalty programme signups.

Intel Capital director Christine Herron said, “E la Carte offers the most innovative and reliable guest tablet solution in the industry.

“We’re thrilled to further accelerate the company’s growth with not only capital, but also our significant resources and expertise in manufacturing, operations, and media.

“As E la Carte transforms the dining experience, we are creating a new market for both restaurant and guest services.”
