VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glance Technologies Inc. (“Glance” or the “Company”) (CSE:GET.CN) (OTCQB:GLNNF) (FKT:GJT) today announced that the current quarter is already the Company’s strongest ever for launches and merchant partner signings.
The Company has signed 136 new locations and launched 50 new locations in 11 weeks since the current fiscal quarter began on March 1, making it Glance’s best quarter to date for those metrics, with two weeks still left to go in the quarter.
“Our team is gaining momentum, especially with our expansion into the U.S.,” says Glance Technologies’ CEO, Desmond Griffin. “Merchants are increasingly recognizing how the value and power of our Glance Pay app can help their business.”
Glance is looking forward to additional opportunities from its attendance this week at the upcoming National Restaurant Association Show 2018 in Chicago, which runs from May 19 to 22. This is the U.S. restaurant industry’s premier event and the largest annual foodservice trade show in the U.S.
At the trade show, Glance will be one of just 14 exhibitors invited to the exclusive Startup Alley, reserved for top creators and innovators who meet the association’s specific criteria. Admission to this group gives Glance a unique opportunity to bring the Glance Pay app, with its sophisticated anti-fraud technology, into the spotlight.
Representing more than 500,000 restaurant businesses with more than one million outlets across the United States, the National Restaurant Association is the largest foodservice trade association in the world by membership.
