The popular American dining establishment Five Guys is now accepting Apple Pay in its app.
This was discovered by Twitter user @ContactlessWiki who noticed that the app’s description was modified in the past couple of months to show support for Apple Pay acceptance in the app.

The user was able to indicate this online by using the Internet Archive Wayback Machine which shows that as of of March 5, 2022, the Five Guys’ app did not have support for Apple Pay, according to its description.
However, as of today, there is added text in the app description that talks about paying with Apple Pay:
“QUICKER CHECKOUT – Streamlined payment options, including Apple Pay and Google Pay, ensure you check out quickly and easily.”
As for the exact app update that could have given it the support is unknown, as the Version History in the App Store for that app does not indicate which update it was. It could have been as closer as early this week since that is the most recent update, and most notably, was Version 5.0.0 of the app. Before that, the last update was back in January 2022.
For Apple Card users that pay with it at the checkout, they will receive 2% in Daily Cash with each purchase they make in the app.
It should also be noted that Five Guys does accept Apple Pay in its restaurants and website too.
