Graham Partners Growth, the growth equity strategy of Graham Partners (“Graham”), is pleased to announce that it has completed a growth equity investment in Bite, Inc. (“Bite”).

Bite’s software is highly customizable, user-friendly, seamlessly integrates into existing tech stacks, and seeks to improve order accuracy, increase throughput, and enhance customer satisfaction.

Labor shortages, rising labor costs, and the shift in consumer preferences toward digital ordering and technology-enhanced experiences is driving a conversion toward self-service kiosks in the restaurant industry.

Bite’s entrepreneurial and passionate leadership team is focused on long-term value creation for the company, which Graham plans to support by bringing meaningful resources to the company from prior experience in the retail automation space.
