Sunday, the French-origin restaurant tech company managing its rapid North American growth from Atlanta, is already making use of its recent $100 million capital raise with an acquisition in Canada.
The company bought Montreal-based CHK PLZ, which also provides QR-code payment capabilities that Sunday says cut down on wait times and restaurants turn more tables and boost tips.
The Quebec firm adds not only 300 more restaurant clients on top of the 1,500 Sunday has already signed since entering the U.S. in April, but also brings digital ordering capabilities on top of live payments at the table, reflecting CHK PLZ’s efforts to help small restaurants survive during the pandemic.

Christine de Wendel, CEO of North America for Sunday, said the complementary product offerings and compatible team cultures will make for an easy melding of CHK PLZ’s six-person team into the Sunday infrastructure.
CHK PLZ founder and CEO Roberto Casoli will become general manager of Canada for Sunday, running operations for the country from the company’s current base. The company was founded by three engineering students from McGill University.
