Ticket Restaurant®

Ticket Restaurant®, Edenred's flagship solution launched in 1962 in the French market, allows employees to purchase meals at the affiliated establishment of their choice. It is a fundamental tool in the corporate landscape which has been updated and adapted to the economic, social and political contexts of the 33 countries in which it is currently used. By switching from paper to card format, Edenred's Ticket Restaurant® solution is becoming a tool that allows users, companies and merchants to share and communicate about their needs and interests. New services are being added, such as mobile applications and dedicated websites (geolocation of restaurants, real-time balance tracking, benefit and discount clubs, etc.). The only issuer in the French market that allows users to pay for lunch via Apple Pay, Edenred is also leading the way in mobile payment.
