DineGigs, which went live in 2017 with a job board and software offerings for the food service industry, opened a $5 million equity capital raise.

The company launched last year with limited offers such as hiring and on-boarding software, and a social network for restaurants’ employees. Duncan Parker, founder and Richmond restaurant industry vet, plans to use the new capital for a fuller rollout, with features such as inventory management, remote control for in-house lighting and thermostats, and accounting tools.

DineGigs is planning a full launch in the second quarter of 2019, and Parker said the fundraising round will float the company through then, at which point it’ll begin bringing in revenue.
