Deal positions Foodics as the dominant Restaurant-tech provider in MENA
Foodics, the leading GCC Restaurant-Tech company based in Saudi Arabia, has announced today its first acquisition, with the full ownership of POSRocket, the second largest restaurant Cloud technology provider in MENA.
This landmark acquisition is a strategic move by both companies and one that enables Foodics to consolidate the market, as well as take market leadership position in Egypt, Kuwait, Oman and Jordan on top of the dominant position it already had in the rest of GCC. This first acquisition also opens the door to further upcoming M&A activities and international expansion from Foodics.
Founded in 2016 in Jordan, POSRocket offers cloud-based POS software for restaurants and retailers, allowing owners to remotely manage operations in real-time. The acquisition will allow POSRocket merchants to benefit from Foodics’ ecosystem in managing payments, supplies and capital lending infrastructure.
“Our acquisition of the fast growing and second largest restaurant Cloud technology provider in the region is very strategic as it naturally establishes our position as the dominant player across MENA and beyond,” commented Ahmad Al-Zaini, Foodics CEO and Co-Founder.
“Foodics is a natural fit for POSRocket, as both brands are driven by helping business owners grow their operations,” remarked Zeid Husban, POSRocket Chief Executive Astronaut and Founder. Since its inception in 2014, Foodics has successfully already processed over US$5 billion worth of orders through its platform, and is targeting 150,000 terminals by the end of 2024.
