What makes a trip to a restaurant a great experience is not just the fact that they serve delicious food and good wine, but it has a lot to do with the atmosphere and overall 'vibe' of the place. Of course, a 'good vibe' means different things to different people (some like it chilled and some like it loud and bustling), so imagine how cool it would be to be able to browse through dining options based on the exact atmosphere you're looking for. That's what Hoppit is all about; finding restaurants by atmosphere. Hoppit's API provides access to this handy functionality.
In 2007; Jono (Jonathan Morse), Dusty, and Kevin created Tripleseat to streamline event planning processes with robust software. Five years later, restaurants and event planners can easily capture leads, manage bookings, generate documents, manage contacts, and run reports from simple user interfaces. However, Tripleseat has extended its software via the Tripleseat API.
