Tempe-based business accelerator Black Dog Venture Partners has acquired 50% of a Canadian-based restaurant app company.

Black Dog Ventures CEO Scott Kelly said he has immediate plans to relocate OnPlate Technologies to the Phoenix area. Kelly will become CEO of OnPlate in the deal.

Ten to 12 marketing employees will be hired in the next few weeks, Kelly said, and OnPlate’s tech team will be relocated to the Phoenix area in the first part of 2021.
