Wahaca has become the first restaurant chain in Europe to allow customers to pay their bill through Facebook Messenger.

Wahaca has worked with technology partner, Flyt, to enable guests to retrieve, split and pay their bill through Messenger.

Flyt chief executive Tom Weaver said: “Flyt continues to deliver on the possibilities that integration offers hospitality and retail businesses. As a key Facebook Messenger partner, Flyt is enabling new services within the biggest platform in the world and offering operators the opportunity to rapidly innovate. Our universal integration platform is growing in the number of available services that a business owner can use to create new experiences for their customers, and to have our work showcased at the F8 conference is a watershed moment for Flyt.”
