Harlem Restaurant Becomes First in U.S. to Implement Order Ahead Tech from MasterCard

MasterCard has partnered with acclaimed restaurateur and chef Marcus Samuelsson to bring Qkr! with MasterPass to the first restaurant location in the United States. The Qkr! with MasterPass app will be available to patrons of Samuelsson’s newest spot, Streetbird Rotisserie – a casual kitchenette featuring its namesake ‘bird’ with complementary dishes reflecting Marcus’ multicultural upbringing from Ethiopia to Sweden, as well as a design inspired by the era of 70s to 90s hip hop and street culture.
Customers who download the Qkr! app from their Android or iOS device will have a faster and more convenient way to not only order their meal in advance, but also pay right from their phone. A dedicated pick-up spot inside the location will help them get in and out quickly. Soon patrons will also be able to order delivery through the Qkr! app, as well.
The app is powered by MasterPass, a digital platform from MasterCard that safely stores payment information in one convenient and secure location and that can be used across connected devices. The app is now available for Streetbird Rotisserie diners to download from the App Store or Google Play.
New payment technology is just the latest example of how MasterCard is partnering with Marcus Samuelsson to deliver an enhanced experience to cardholders. Through Priceless New York, consumers have exclusive access to premiere reservations at Samuelsson’s other popular and well-known hot spot, Red Rooster Harlem.
