Nivoix further emphasizes Foodomarket's unique advantage, stating, "We understand the challenges faced by restaurant owners firsthand. Our platform was designed by industry insiders for industry insiders. Our exceptional performance in France is a testament to our success, and expanding to the UK was a natural progression. We are excited to make an impactful entry into this market."
