SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- San Francisco-based wait-free dining startup Allset (www.allsetnow.com) has raised $2.35 million in seed funding. Allset focuses on the dine-in restaurant experience, enabling customers to both book a table and pre-order their meal at local restaurants making for a wait-free and more seamless lunch.
Including previously raised $1 million in pre seed funding, Allset has now raised a total of $3.35 million. Launched last year, Allset currently operates in San Francisco, Palo Alto, and Manhattan serving over 8,500 diners per month with more than 180 restaurant partners.
The new round was led by Metamorphic Ventures, with participation from Andreessen Horowitz, FJ Labs, and previous investors — SMRK VC Fund and private investor and entrepreneur Alexandr Chernyak.
Allset plans to utilize the new funds to expand into new markets (Los Angeles and Chicago) as well as for product research, development, and marketing.
Allset takes all the waiting out of eating at restaurants. It allows anyone to book, order & pay for their lunch at local restaurants before arrival. The app can save diners up to 30 minutes of time that is usually spent waiting for a table, food & check.
Allset helps local restaurants bring in new customers during mid-week lunchtimes, increase table turnover by cutting dining time in half, and serve corporate clients for business meetings and employee lunches: https://allsetnow.com/for-restaurants/
Earlier this year Allset released a Facebook Messenger bot to enable diners to book, order & pay ahead for lunch at local restaurants directly from Facebook Messenger on their phones and computers: https://www.m.me/allsetnow

I really believe in this service and I am 100% sure that everyone who has a tight schedule and values their time will benefit from using Allset.
