Incentivio is an all-in-one digital guest engagement platform. EatOkra is a digital guide to Black-owned restaurants. Together, Incentivio and EatOkra app users can find local Black-owned restaurants and place delivery, take-out, and curbside orders. This is all done conveniently through their mobile app or website. EatOkra will also be able to leverage Incentivio’s built-in loyalty and marketing tools. This will engage and reward app users for interacting with the restaurants on the EatOkra platform.

“We are privileged to be working with EatOkra and to do our part in helping them achieve their mission of connecting foodies to Black-owned restaurants,” says Rajat Bhakhri, CEO and Co-founder at Incentivio.

“We’re overjoyed to work with the Incentivio team,” says Anthony Edwards, CEO and Co-founder at EatOkra. “Offering an integrated digital ordering, marketing, and loyalty solution allows our restaurateurs to keep more of their bottom line.
