Reserve’s mission is to help restaurants and guests connect to create memorable dining experiences. Since we launched in 2014, we’ve helped seat nearly 9M people in more than 500 restaurants in 104 cities across America. We learned a lot along the way, and love the experiences and relationships we helped create. What drives all of us at Reserve is knowing the role we’ve played – and will continue to play – in making that happen.
That’s why we’re really excited to announce a $10M Series B round to further our efforts to create better dining experiences and change they way restaurant reservations are made. We are so thankful to have the support of Expa Capital, First Round, Human Ventures, and others. Their commitment to our business means so much.
Fueling this new round of investment is, among other things, the promise and early success we’ve had in creating tools to help restaurants better manage their inventory and ultimately serve more guests each day. Last May, we released Reserve for Restaurants (RFR) — our premier table management software for restaurants, developed hand-in-hand with some of the finest restaurateurs in the nation. In just nine months, the number of restaurants using RFR has tripled to 519. Later this year, we’ll release the industry’s best table management solution to make it even easier for restaurants to gain more control of their dining rooms by better understanding customer demand and maximizing seatings every day.
Additionally, Reserve has gone nationwide! While we’ve traditionally operated in our focus cities (New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC and, as of a few weeks ago, Asheville, North Carolina), we’ve received a lot of interest in Reserve for Restaurants from all over the United States. So, we’re officially making it available across the country — no matter the city. From managing a waitlist at a busy walk-in joint, to providing a fine dining restaurant with better CRM tools, our robust solution is here to help.
With the support of our investors and lengthy list of partners, 2017 is shaping up to be a huge year at Reserve. We can’t wait to share some of the exciting plans we have coming in the following months. Happy dining!
