Edenred Capital Partners acquires an equity interest in Zenchef

Edenred Capital Partners has acquired an equity interest in Zenchef, a startup specialized in web communication for independent restaurant owners.

Created in 2011, Zenchef‘s primary mission has been to assist independent restaurant owners with their digital communication to help them gain and retain new customers.

Within three years since its creation, Edenred Capital Partners has led a new funding with XAnge, METRO and past investors such as Elaia Partners, L’Accélérateur Capital Partners, Kima Ventures and several angel investors, totaling 6 million euros.

"Our business is based on the satisfaction of our affiliated partners, without whom we would not exist. We must constantly bring them added value. Therefore Edenred Capital Partners has chosen to invest in Zenchef. We acquired the intimate conviction that the positioning of the company responds to critical issues faced by independent restaurants in their fast-mutating sector”, Philippe Dufour, Executive Vice President, Alternative Investments at Edenred, commented.

This new increase in capital will enable the company to carry out its strong development initiative, including international development, for the coming years.
