Frustrated that you can’t get a reservation at your favorite restaurant on short notice? Can’t get a table at the hottest new spot in town? Ben Leventhal is out to change that with his new app Resy, a mobile app for people who love eating at great restaurants but hate hassling for reservations. He’s the guest this week on All in the Industry with Shari Bayer and he’s got plenty to share. In addition to starting Resy, he co-founded Eater, one of the most popular food websites in the world. Tune in and hear his inspiration for starting Resy and hear what else he’s been up to lately. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.
“What we did with Eater is take this amazing technology and slap restaurants on it. that’s a thru line in my career – is thinking about tech and restaurants and finding the right and best way to put those two things together.” [14:00]
“There’s all this friction and inefficiency that goes into allocating tables. We’d like to fix that with Resy.” [16:00]
“The bar on casual cuisine has gone way up.” [29:00]
