Our story

Glug was founded by a group of friends who started scribbling their ideas onto a piece of paper. After Lewis brought up the initial idea, their combined experience of the hospitality industry made it clear that there was space for something new. Spurred on by the effects of COVID-19, the team grew to set their plans into action. A few months later the Glug app was live and in use, being tested in a handful of high volume bars and restaurants. With the testing phase done, Glug is now building their UK business community. 



Technology is now being used to reassure customers about safety measures, cleaning schedules, collecting data, and eliminating touchpoints between customers and staff. ‘Right now, technology
is a neccessity,’ reflects Josh Burke, CEO and co-founder of Glug,
an ordering and payment app.
