About Tock

Tock is changing the way restaurants, wineries, and culinary event organizers run their business. This includes a robust reservation, guest, and table management system for businesses of all sizes across the globe.

Nick Kokonas and Chef Grant Achatz opened Alinea to international fanfare in 2005 - now a perennial Michelin three star and widely considered one of the best restaurants in the world. For years they were spending $140,000 a year on staff dedicated to managing reservations and losing an average of $260,000 a year on cancellations. Knowing there had to be a solution, Nick started work on a new reservation system. The homemade platform was a success. Soon after, Nick founded Tock with Brian Fitzpatrick, founder of Google's Chicago engineering office, to turn this simple idea into a robust platform to change the way people dine around the world.

Tock’s explosive growth (as of February 2019):

  • Announced an exclusive partnership and integration with Chase Pay
  • Announced an exclusive partnership and integration with WineDirect
  • Won Chicago Tribune's "Game Changer" Award for industry innovation
  • Reached a global customer base of over 23 countries operating in 100+ cities
  • Has now processed over $450 million in prepaid reservations

An Insider's view of Tock

What’s the vibe like in the office?

What I love most about working at Tock is the support I get from my immediate team. We created a culture where we can work off of each other's strengths and come up with a plan on how to fix and learn from each other's mistakes. The cold brew on tap isn't bad either.

What does your typical day look like?

Every day in sales here is different than the last, and we have the flexibility to create our own schedules. Some are spent researching and reaching perfect matches for Tock, some are spent meeting with some of the world's best chefs in the coolest cities, and some are spent rolling up our sleeves and ensuring successful onboarding for our clients.

A successful member of our team needs to be determined, passionate about our product and the success of our partners, persistent and flexible in trying new ways to reach potential new partners, and organized to easily manage your deals and leads. An optimistic and friendly attitude also goes a long way!

Maggie

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

For those that love food and eating out, what if I asked you, where should I go to dinner. What would you say? Tough question, right? The restaurant scene in Chicago and across the entire world is more crowded now than ever before. So at Tock we’re helping restaurants compete and succeed with tools to make them better businesses.

Dan

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I've never worked with a more collaborative, talented, and hard-working group of people, across all of our teams. Everyone is willing to learn and adapt as the company grows and scales. Not only do all departments have full visibility into what the others are doing, but we actively seek out ways to help and improve lines of communication.
