More Houston hospital workers now have access to on-demand mobile ordering thanks to a Houston startup.
Houston-based Rivalry Tech has rolled out its its mobile ordering platform, myEATz, into five of Houston Methodist's hospital cafes. The hospital employees can now order food and beverages from the myEATz app or web platform.
The platform is now available at: Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital, Houston Methodist West Hospital, Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital, Houston Methodist Continuing Care Hospital, and Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital.
"Employee wellness is especially important in healthcare as worker shortages, combined with fatigue, continue to be a concern," says Aaron Knape, CEO and co-founder of Rivalry Tech, in a news release. "MyEATz offers more than just access to onsite food and beverage options, it encourages employees to utilize their meal breaks to recharge and make the most of their break."
The expansion aligns with Rivalry's partnership with Aramark Healthcare+, which operates all of the dining operations at Houston Methodist.
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Rivalry Tech to bring mobile ordering to five additional Aramark Healthcare+ Houston Methodist locations," says Dave Hanson, vice president of operations at Aramark Healthcare+, in the release. "Our continued investment in technology is a testament to our commitment to providing exceptional service and convenience to our healthcare caregivers. With Rivalry Tech's myEATz platform and our operational expertise, we are confident in our ability to enhance the overall dining experience for our guests.”
Founded in 2018 as sEATz, an in-stadium ordering app, Rivalry Tech rebranded and introduced the myEATz concept last year. Since then, the company rolled out its new app and raised $3.5 million in funding to expand its technology into the health care hospitality space.
