Chope, the leading dining app for online table reservations and dining deals, launches their latest campaign “Dine Out to Help Out” to support the revival of Bali’s restaurant industry whilst accommodating food connoisseurs on the island with easy access to reservations and access to save big at Bali’s top restaurants.
Ever since the pandemic hit Bali, the entire island has been gravely affected since almost 80% of Bali’s economy rely on tourism. With the international borders still closed, Bali is left with essentially zero tourism and the hospitality industry along with the F&B industry has been badly impacted. This is where Chope comes in to be part of the solution to resuscitate the F&B industry with its latest campaign.
Now that the PPKM (Community Activities Restrictions Enforcement) regulations have been slightly adjusted, restaurants are allowed to accept dine-in customers at a 50% capacity and a 60-minute dine-in time, which means dining out in Bali is back!
Whether you’re walking down memory lane at some of your favourite dining destinations or discovering new culinary experiences to cross off your dining bucket list, Chope is here to tend to your dining escapades with its user-friendly dining app featuring easy online table reservations and fantastic deals.
Additionally, to accommodate diners with more savings when dining out, Chope’s Dine Out to Help Out campaign strives to aid Bali’s F&B industry by encouraging diners to return to dine in restaurants.
