Sticky, created by Brighouse resident James Garner, allows customers with a smartphone to order without downloading an extra app and pay by just tapping a sticker, unlike third party order-at-table apps, with which customers have to download and sign up for.

Sticky was uniquely placed to gather data on what the nation was eager to order when they were given the chance post-lockdown.

The first post-lockdown order was a single pint of Peroni at 11:54am, and orders quickly picked up, with the repeat-order time per table averaging at just 21 minutes.

By 1pm, orders had already become bigger and more ambitious - one customer ordered five pints and four jägerbombs in a single transaction at 12:34pm.

The top selling pints were Coors, Carling, Pravha, Doom Bar and Yorkshire Blonde.

James Garner, founder and CEO of Sticky said, “July 4 was a historic moment for UK pubs. The new normal is not something that happens by itself - it’s a future created by pub owners and technology companies working together.

“We are so proud to have played a part in reopening hospitality with our contactless stickers and technology.

“Our reopening day target was hit by just 7pm and by midday Sunday we had already generated over £600 of additional revenue for just one pub’s outdoor area.

“We rolled out this technology with single on-site visits and feedback from pub customers has been fantastic.

“After a very successful rollout at The Marquis of Granby, Keighley, Sticky would love to help Brighouse businesses with their reopening plans.”
