The Answer to Modern Hospitality Madness

Everyone knows AGFG as the publisher who has guided local foodies for 40 years as well as the home of Australia's Chef Hat Awards and Readers' Choice Awards. 


What you probably don't know is that we've actually built something a whole lot better than a reputation.

OUR PROBLEM

Digital changed everything...


A few years ago we had a funny feeling that the Australian hospitality industry was changing. Being open and having great service just wasn't enough anymore.

Customers' attention had moved. They were online - all the time. All of a sudden people wanted to interact with venues directly from their devices. The whole journey from inspiration to order was happening digitally - you never even see the customer for delivery orders.

YOUR SOLUTION

We've built what vendors need


Instead of denying the truth of it all, we set out to talk to vendors from across Australia to see if they were ready for these changes and had a tool in place to deal with them. You know what we heard? An overwhelming NO!

We headed back home and came up with something to solve that problem. Something to close the growing gap between venue and customer connection. The AGFG Total Customer Solution was born, and now it's here to help you.

How Does It Work?

The key to success as we hit the road to recovery from pandemic-restricted trading is being seen by the right people, converting them into paying customers, and then getting those new customers back time and time again.

That's a lot of work...it sounds like more work than any one person can do on their own.

AGFG has combined 40 years of experience serving 65,000 Australian hospitality businesses and 5 million local readers into one package so you CAN do it yourself.

Don't worry - we still do all the technical parts!

What our customers say about us

"We're very, very grateful for the support. It's a very easy system to use the actual back end for web apps and Australian Good Food Guide. And it just means that we're able to promote more effectively, the events that are coming up."

Gemma Swain

“We chose AGFG for the simple-to-use Bookings engine and the integration between online orders and our POS system. Being able to accept and manage bookings outside of business hours has seen us generate additional business where we never have been able to."
