The Manila Times
SOUTHEAST Asia’s leading buy now pay later (BNPL) platform Atome is here to take foodies on the ultimate gastronomic trip. It has partnered with The Bistro Group to offer its BNPL services in select food and beverage (F&B) outlets in Metro Manila. The Bistro Group, famed for its dining concepts that have amassed popularity across the country, is the latest addition to Atome’s growing roster of restaurant partners which offer flexible, deferred payment options to diners in the metro. Foodies can use Atome to pay at branch locations of Hard Rock Cafe, TGI Fridays, Denny’s, Randy’s Donuts, Watami, Modern Shanghai, Bulgogi Brothers and Italianni’s restaurants within Metro Manila. In total, the partnership will cover 65 F&B outlets under the Bistro Group. “Nearly 70 percent of Atome users in the Philippines are Gen Z or millennials under the age of 40, and we know food and dining experiences ranks high among their favorite activities. Walk into any Bistro Group establishment, and there’s always people celebrating — be it a birthday, anniversary, personal and professional milestone — or perhaps just a couple of friends satisfying their cravings. Beyond the Bistro Group, Atome is also available as a payment option across 200+ restaurants and counting,” General Manager at Atome Philippines Zine Nedil said. Signing up with Atome is easy and can be done within a matter of minutes. All one needs is to download the app from the App Store or on Google Play and complete the account opening requirements.
