SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ritual, the pick up and pay app that lets you skip the wait and earn rewards at the best eateries, is throwing a two-week digital food festival called “Ritual Eats Week” from March 5th to the 16th. Thousands of restaurants across the country are participating and when users pay with Apple Pay, they will receive exclusive dishes at affordable prices with savings up to fifty percent off.
Ritual Eats Week will also feature one-of-a-kind events for Ritual and Apple Pay users with internationally recognized chef Ken Tominaga in San Francisco and Boston’s “Ultimate Burger” king James Martin. Cities participating in Ritual Eats Week include: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Boston, and Toronto.
Any customer who orders with the Ritual app and pays with Apple Pay will have access to these exclusive daily deals, while paying easily, quickly and securely. Limited-time offerings during Ritual Eats Week include: half-priced Fuku Fingers at Fuku’s Brookfield Place location in New York, free tater tots with the purchase of a burger at Tasty Burger’s Back Bay location in Boston, and half-off the Tokyo-Style ramen bowl at The Ramen Bar in San Francisco.
“We started Ritual Eats Week to transform lunchtime,” said Ritual co-founder and CEO, Ray Reddy. “After discovering that sixty-two percent of working professionals eat alone at their desks, we saw this huge opportunity to connect people to the best spots in their neighborhood while making lunch social and convenient. By featuring exclusive items at a great price during Ritual Eats Week, people can discover a new favorite over their lunch break.”
Ritual has a unique social ordering feature which allows you to collaborate on orders with your teammates to save them the trip and earn you bonus points towards free food. The app reduces a user’s wait time by seven minutes on average and offers full menus and the ability to customize orders without extra fees. Ritual helps people get out of the office and discover new eats.
To participate in Ritual Eats Week, simply make sure you have Ritual and Apple Pay and you’re ready to eat. Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by credit and debit cards. When paying on the go in apps, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad (5th Generation), iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay, so when you make a purchase, your card number is never stored on your device or on Apple servers, and when you pay, your card numbers are never shared by Apple with merchants.
