Hola Club Click & Collect

New click and collect drinks ordering platform targets taverns

The Hola Club Click & Collect platform offers a safe and convenient option to sell and buy drinks at local taverns. The platform enables consumers to pre-order their drink to collect at a chosen time. This reduces waiting times and eliminates queues.

This platform encourages and enables licensed tavern owners to operate and manage their staff and businesses more effectively and safely, and to comply with lockdown regulations. 

How it works for tavern owners:

Sign up on and create a seller account.

In the app, sellers are able to see bookings from consumers, which allows them to pre-pack orders and have them ready for collection.

The app also allows them to know in advance what drinks their customers will purchase, and be able to stock the right products.

How it works for consumers:

Sign up on and create a buyer account.

They then select their drink of choice from a list of products, choose a preferred time-slot for collection, and confirm where they would like to collect.

Consumers receive a confirmation of a time-slot for them to collect their order, and from which tavern.

Consumers don’t need to queue at the collection point. They collect their order and pay.

Platform: Android and iOS

Expect to pay: A free service
