DROOL IN A NUTSHELL «Drool» is the world's first Social-Table platform and presents guests and hosts with a novel social gastronomy concept. It is a new way how people get to know each other at so-called «Social-Tables» and enjoy innovative gastronomy together in the real world. Drool is also intended for innovative hosts who want to offer more than the usual routine of preparing, serving and collecting. To enable hosts to participate independently in the Drool ecosystem, the "social-tableKIT" was created as a digital and free tool. With this tool, hosts can easily create their own culinary packages via the Drool platform, which are not (yet) available on their menus, and offer them digitally on Drool. Hosts determine the price, timing and offer themselves and leave administrative tasks such as booking, ticketing, payment and guest lists to Drool. With Drool, a digital gastronomy platform was created to automate essential business processes and to respond to existing and new customer needs. Thus the gastronomic offer of a host is led into the digital age and its normal tables transformed into exciting Social-Tables. OUR STORY The idea for Drool was born on journeys to distant countries, where the founders often shared a table with strangers in restaurants. What was new and strange at the beginning soon became a chance to get in touch with different people. This ease of getting to know and exchanging, which in many countries is a part of social interaction, is also to be found in Drool. But also the hosts, who were involved in the events with their guests and shaped the overall experience, impressed the founders on their travels. The hosts impressively told the story of the origin of their restaurant, the culinary creations and their visions for the future. In doing so, they awakened emotions in their guests and created an unprecedented closeness. So a visit to the restaurant became more than the usual routine. It became a real experience. These experiences inspired the founders to reflect the feeling of shared enjoyment in a concept: Drool. With this concept, the founders are betting on the future, in which the world will become even more digital and interpersonal contact all the more important. Drool combines society, social and technology to create added value for all participants.
