Where did you eat lunch today? Chances are, you were at your desk. But Stas Matviyenko, founder of the app Allset, wants to change that: “Our mission is to bring people from offices to restaurants, to get all the benefits of a restaurant experience and have a proper lunch break,” he says. The app coordinates with restaurants and combines reservations, ordering, and payment into one interface, and ensures lunch arrives moments after diners arrive. “We called it Allset because every time you finish in the restaurant and everything is okay,” Matviyenko says, “everyone says ‘all set.'”
