Today, Will’s Northwoods Inn announced its partnership with Bartab, an application that allows customers to purchase and share food and drink items via iPhones or Android smartphones. The app features a Will’s Northwoods Inn menu offering top sellers like its signature cheese curds and Wisconsin game day packages.

“We’re excited to introduce this new method of purchasing and sharing food and drinks to our customers,” Kevin Kruse of Will's Northwoods Inn said. “Bartab is also a great addition to our Facebook page, allowing our fans to pre-purchase our specials anytime.”

People who have the Bartab app can gift drinks and food through text messages, emails or Facebook. Users can purchase and claim items at Will’s Northwoods Inn for themselves, grab a round for a group, or send specific items to an individual anytime or from anywhere. By adding a credit card to the app, all transactions are processed seamlessly and include a 20-percent gratuity, negating the need to ever open or close a tab. Users who are gifted an item don’t need the Bartab app, only a smartphone where they can access the mobile web and claim their item by clicking on a link sent to them by the gifter.

Webtab CEO Steve Johnson said, “We are thrilled to offer this fun and innovative tool that combines social sharing, mobile payments and loyalty. Bartab is the only service that embraces the social nature of an outing with friends while driving revenue for our partner venues. We believe this technology will revolutionize the way people plan their social events and transact at bars and restaurants.”
