What does Resy do?
Resy, is a mobile application for people who love eating at good restaurants but dislike the troubles of reservations. The idea of planning ahead of time or jumping through the problems of eating at the best restaurants in the city is absurd. Even if people get a table, the chance of experiencing from the time of planning where to eat to the seats, could have been better. This company is changing it. This company has a policy that if people want to eat dinner at a specific time, then they should get a reservation at that particular time, instead of having to choose between the available times in the restaurant. The company was founded in 2014 and is now running in over 50 cities around the country.
How much Resy was funded?
The company raised $13M in Series A on January 9, 2017 from Lerer Hippeau Ventures, First Data Corporation, RSE Ventures and Airbnb
2M on July 31, 2014 from Vayner/RSE, Panarea Capital, Lerer Hippeau Ventures, A-Grade Investments, Ken Austin and Slow Ventures.
