Meet the team
Yumpingo was inspired by a casual conversation our founder had with a friend who runs a restaurant.
When asked for the single thing that could most improve his business, the restaurateur replied that he'd love to see the thoughts of his customers pop out above them like thought bubbles in children's comic books.
After lots of hard work, Yumpingo's unique platforms for collecting and understanding customer sentiment data makes this possible, to help restaurants around the world keep feeding happiness every day.
Meet the growing team that makes it all happen!
