Look, it’s been a long time coming, and the whole hospitality industry needs a shake up. There are plenty of players in the food & drink space, especially in Sydney. Tayble wants to redefine the way you dine.
Imagine walking into a restaurant or bar. You sit down and take a seat. What happens next?
But what if you could head on over to your favorite bar or eatery, take a seat and open up the Tayble App?
You can check out the menu, food & drink specials, order your favorite meal, split the bill, and leave at your convenience. Oh did I mention, you can add to your order at anytime?
Another way to think of it is like ‘Uber.’ Instead of ordering a car, you order your dinner and drinks with your friends, right from your smartphone, or tablet.
Tayble wants to redefine the whole eating-out casual drink experience, and this doesn’t stop at ordering at your table. You can post reviews about the meals and venues too.
The app is in the process of being developed and has two-thousand users and fifty pre-registered businesses queued up for the apps’ release. Tayble is looking for more customers to pre-register before it’s launch, which you can do here
The competitors range from menu apps like HeyYou who process more than 13,000 transactions daily – to user recommendation sites like Yelp – and MenuLog, a food delivery app. Tayble aims to be the go-to app, for casual food & drinks.
Tayble makes money by charging a small transaction fee to businesses for the ease of the Tayble-tech.
Restaurant owners can reduce staffing costs, balance the till with incorrect orders and of course limit the time that you have to wait. Venues can pre-register and be one of the first to offer Tayble service here
Tayble plans to first enter the Sydney market, before expanding across all major cities and to America.
An insider has reported Tayble have recently commenced the later stages of negotiation with one of Australia’s largest breweries and plans to leverage this partnership to incentivise user adoption.
Tayble received a pre-seed investment of $350K from a Radio Station Network in America, an experienced entrepreneur – and, the head of a retail chain.
The team did not disclose specific names related to who these three investors were.
Currently, Tayble is finalising a $500K seed investment. The majority of it will be used to fuel growth in the Sydney CBD area.
The team is made up of Phil Tran, Ben Burns, Chris McCarney, Scott Davis and Aloke Bikkina.
- CEO: Phil Tran, an ex-IBM executive (Sydney).
- COO: Ben Burns, patent holder (Brisbane).
- CMO: Chris McCarney, former Sabra Sales (Melbourne)
- CTO: Scott Davis, previously worked at Google in SF (USA).
- BDM: Aloke Bikkina, Founder of DIY Banners (Sydney).
- UI/UX: Sid Parihar, previously Apple Designer in SF (USA)
Most of the team met at a networking event at The Entourage, a place to network and get a business education in Sydney. They shared a beer, some good and bad times – as one of the co-founders businesses took a turn for the worst. Years later, they reunited, went out for lunch and that’s when the idea for Tayble app was born.
According to Phil Tran, CEO of Tayble, “Determination and discipline trump all.”
