“While it took a while for us to get to that “lightbulb” moment, ultimately Gather evolved out of a desire to help local businesses thrive. My co-founders and I wanted to create a company that could help this segment and that led us down a few different paths. But along the way, we developed relationships with folks at some of the top restaurants and restaurant groups in Atlanta and soon discovered they were still using pen and paper to manage a very lucrative line of business — private events. And that’s when the pieces started to come together.
There had to be a more efficient a process for managing private dining and events. So with help from our early clients, we developed a software platform to streamline and automate those administrative tasks, making planning and execution of events easy for both the venue and their customers. After seeing strong growth in the restaurant space, we saw the need for this type of solution in different types of venues, and have since expanded to breweries, bowling alleys, wineries, movie theaters and more. Today, Gather is a solution that our clients — over 3,000 locations across the US — depend on.”
