Tabero is a community-based marketplace connecting people safely around tables in host restaurants as an alternative way to meet new people, network, make new friends and acquaintances by dining with them.
Bringing strangers together to share meals is serving up opportunities to meet and eat with new friends.
Modern friendships embrace great technology and Tabero is building some compelling features that makes finding those modern friendships and connections easier, safer and more fun. Users can sign up quickly and securely, view events by location, cuisine type, personal interests and common ground with other registered diners and teams. Last year, between lockdowns, a number of Tabero dining events took place in Dublin, confirming the demand for alternative social gatherings and the need to connect proving stronger than it has ever been with consumers searching for experiences and communities to be part of.
‘Some people find it easy to strike up friendships while others don’t. Then there are people who just want to go out and have more fun and network than ever before. They want to try something different. People who travel at home or abroad said they’d love to meet others travelling too. People are missing their work colleagues because of remote working; they want to reconnect. Many people who’ve used apps to meet others don’t trust them. Safety in numbers, meeting in groups helps avoid the awkward ‘get-out clause’ moment that people have found themselves in after matching online and quickly realising the match isn’t there in person. Some people value new experiences and others want those casual connections that are more important now than they have ever been.
The Tabero platform allows people to connect around tables in restaurants by giving them the tools to control and manage those connections. This approach offers real value for users, providing them with a level of safety, using technology that allows them to curate their experiences. Giving users that control, creates transparency and trust which is integral to the success and growth of the brand.’ - Gerry Cleary, CEO & Co-founder.
Tabero was established in December 2019 by Gerry Cleary, Niamh Phelan and John Power.
