FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- One of south Florida's homegrown, leading tech start-ups is about to take the national stage to seek their next big investment. Selected as the first company to appear on the August 4, 2015 (10 p.m. EDT) premier of CNBC's "West Texas Investors Club," SpeedETab's Co-Founder Adam Garfield will pitch his mobile application that is modernizing the way customers order and pay for food and drinks at their favorite hangouts.
"West Texas Investors Club" is an eight-episode, unscripted series set in West Texas featuring multi-millionaires Rooster McConaughey (brother of actor Matthew McConaughey) and Butch Gilliam. In each episode the duo will be seeking their next big investment by interviewing up and coming entrepreneurs to uncover their potential as well as the potential of their products.
"As a Miami native, this is an exciting opportunity to not only introduce SpeedETab to a global audience, but really shine a bright light on the Miami tech scene," said SpeedETab Co-Founder and CEO Adam Garfield. "This is a big step forward for SpeedETab to secure investment funding and showcase the product's strength on a major platform."
Frustrated with poor service and long wait times in the hospitality industry, co-founders Adam Garfield and Edward Gilmore developed SpeedETab to let customers order and pay for menu items right from their smartphone. Once the order is ready, SpeedETab sends a notification to the user to pick up their items.
"We're on a mission to make people's lives easier," said Gilmore. "It's all about offering convenience, and saving time – whether that's checking out a menu from your phone, or actually using your phone to pay and skip the line – we're incredibly proud to showcase SpeedETab on CNBC."
The Android version of SpeedETab will be released on August 4, 2015 in conjunction with the company's appearance on the premier of CNBC's "West Texas Investors Club."
"Launching SpeedETab for Android devices is an exciting step forward for us as we continue to grow and evolve," said Garfield. "We've heard and felt the demand from Android users and we're excited to have them as part of our growing user base."
