The idea behind Dimmi was created by Stevan Premutico on a coffee shop napkin in 2007. "I was sitting in a coffee shop in Chelsea, thinking about how the internet and online was transforming the hotel business, when it dawned on me that the same impact could change the restaurant business", says Premutico.
In January 2019, Dimmi announced its rebrand to TheFork. Operating as part of the TripAdvisor portfolio, the rebrand will see Dimmi join forces with its European equivalent, TheFork.
The service provides restaurant customers with a cloud-based reservation management platform powered by ResDiary. The reservations platform helps restaurant owners with reservation management, table management, guest recognition, and email marketing.
The service allows diners to browse over 4500 restaurants across Australia and make instant reservations via TheFork website, Android, and iOS apps.
