Marqii, a digital operations platform for restaurants and other companies in the hospitality sector, has recently secured $4.5 million in a Series A funding round. This brings the total funding raised by the company to $10 million. The funding will be used to accelerate product innovation, deepen industry-specific tech stack integrations, and expand guest engagement and review management capabilities.
Headquartered in New York City, Marqii provides a centralized platform for restaurants, bars, hotels, ghost kitchens, and virtual brands to manage their online menus and listings, as well as respond to reviews. The company recently launched its Managed Review Response service, which combines AI and human intelligence to create personalized review responses.
Marqii’s platform offers operators a single dashboard for managing menus and hours across all locations, automating review responses, and integrating with dozens of POS systems and over 80 listing sites. This streamlines online operations, increases search visibility, and keeps online menus updated.
Since its seed funding announcement in March 2022, Marqii has experienced significant growth, with over 200% revenue growth and assisting more than 8,000 additional hospitality businesses in streamlining their online operations. The company has strong market traction in the competitive hospitality technology space.
The recent funding round was led by CEAS Investments, with contributions from GTM Fund, Hatcher VC, and Maccabee Ventures. Ronnie Martinez, VC Associate at CEAS Investments and new Marqii board member, expressed excitement about the company’s progress and highlighted the team’s efforts in building new products and integrations to provide a seamless experience for hospitality groups.
Marqii’s success is a testament to their ability to address the needs of the hospitality industry, which has traditionally struggled with fragmented operating systems. With their innovative platform, Marqii is helping hospitality businesses streamline their operations, increase efficiency, and enhance guest engagement.
