The name “Chope” was inspired by the term chope spoken colloquially in Singapore. The means to online reservation include the company’s website, mobile applications, and plug-ins for restaurant websites and Facebook pages. Chope charges restaurants fixed and per-diner fees for the use of its table booking system; diners are not charged booking or cancellation fees for reservations made through Chope’s system. In July of 2012, Chope announced its application has been used by 1,000,000 diners.
On June 30, 2015 the company announced it had secured an investment of US $8M in a series C round co-led by F&H Fund Management, a fund chaired by pioneering Alibaba CTO John Wu, and NSI Ventures.
