About kea

Launched in 2018, kea is changing the way restaurants operate. We've built a voice product that takes calls on behalf of the restaurant, helping customers place their orders without having to speak to someone in the store. This allows the restaurant to stop context-switching and focus on what they do best: making great food. We've raised $29m to date from top-tier investors and we're building an amazing team to drive the world's restaurant commerce. We've experienced significant revenue growth, and plan to continue that trend by providing even more value for our customers through our technology. There are tens of thousands of restaurants out there that need kea, and we're building for them.
