VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glance Technologies Inc. (“Glance” or the “Company”) (CSE:GET) (OTCQB:GLNNF) (FKT:GJT) today announced it is participating as an exhibitor at the Northwest Food Show held in Portland, Oregon, April 14th and 15th.

The Northwest Food Show is the largest and most established in the Northwest and draws an eclectic and broad range of food-related vendors, distributors, and representatives from across the United States, with a large percentage of attendees being restaurants, bars and hotels.

Glance has engaged with both the Washington Hospitality Association and the Oregon Restaurants and Lodging Association, as an allied member, to provide a mobile payment solution to their restaurant and hospitality members located in the Pacific Northwest region.

According to the National Restaurant Association, Washington and Oregon combined have a total of more than 26,000 eating and drinking locations and had estimated annual restaurant sales of $23.2 billion in 2018.

The cities of Seattle and Portland are great opportunities for Glance’s expansion: both cities have burgeoning restaurant scenes that are experiencing rising rents, increased competition, a tight labor market and rising labor costs due to minimum wage hikes. Glance’s Real-Time BillTM and upcoming Order from TableTM features present the perfect solution for restaurants looking to leverage in-restaurant technology to reduce their expenses and increase revenue.

“We see the western U.S. region as a great opportunity due to multiple trends coalescing such as rising labor costs, a tight labor market, and the increasing adoption of restaurant technology,” says Desmond Griffin Glance Technologies CEO, “We think apps such as Uber, Starbucks, and PayByPhone have primed consumers for technologies such as Glance in these markets.”
