Canadian-based restaurant point-of-sale system TouchBistro has raised a Series D investment of C$72m, co-led by Omers Ventures and JPMorgan Chase.

The new round of funding brings the software company’s total funding to C$117m. Other investors who participated in the round include Napier Park Financial Partners, Recruit Holdings, BDC IT Venture Fund and Relay Ventures.

The company will use the investment to develop a next-generation restaurant operating system and new payment solutions. It also aims to expand its presence in new and existing markets, planning to double the team size over the next year.

TouchBistro founder and CEO Alex Barrotti said: “I am proud to welcome our new partners – Omers Ventures, one of the largest pension funds in Canada, and JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the US.

“With this injection of capital, TouchBistro is incredibly well positioned to execute on our growth strategy.

“This fundraising will allow us to develop a whole new level of financial products and services integrations that greatly benefit both our restaurants and Chase customers alike.”
