About Tock

Tock is changing the way restaurants, wineries, and culinary event organizers run their business and how guests explore, discover, and book at these places all around the globe. This includes a robust reservation, pickup and delivery, guest, and table management system for businesses of all sizes.

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. From the start they were spending an average of $140,000 a year on staff dedicated to managing reservations and losing an average of $260,000 a year on cancellations, problems Nick wanted to solve. Nick founded Tock with Brian Fitzpatrick, founder of Google's Chicago engineering office, to do just that — to design and develop a new, robust reservation platform to change the way people around the world search, book, and dine.

  • Awarded Built In’s “2020 Best Places to Work”
  • Announced Tock’s platform will be powering JP Morgan Chase’s new Dining Program
  • Won Chicago Tribune's "Game Changer" Award for industry innovation
  • Reached a global customer base of 30 countries operating in 200+ cities
  • Processed almost $1 billion in prepaid reservations
  • Featured in: New York Times, Bloomberg, GQ, Vice, Wired, Food & Wine, Eater, Skift Table, Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago Business, New York Post, and more
  • Named one of 2019's 50 Startups to Watch
