We moved to New York City three years ago after running a taco truck together in Philadelphia. We’re passionate about food and NYC is home to some of the best. We spent weeks trying out several restaurants, but found trendy places almost a drag because of their unreliable wait times. Like all other great ideas, our app is the result of a drunken evening. After putting our names down on a waitlist, we went to go grab a drink, and never heard from the restaurant again. As a result, we got very drunk. We beelined to the nearest dollar slice and six slices later, While You Wait was born on the back of a greasy napkin. The whole process of eating out in a large city is, quite frankly, a process. It should just be easier and we set out to find a better way.
