Ciaran Haughey of Table4One at Collision 2019 Toronto

 Dining alone?

You don·t need to any more!

Connect with similar professionals who will be in the same location at the same time as you and meet them over lunch or dinner using the new Table 4 one App. The Table 4 one App is Designed and built by professionals for professionals! Having spent many years of travelling on business and uttering that pitiful phrase ·Table 4 one, please?· in lots of restaurants and hotels, only to look around and see several other people in the same predicament, we felt that there had to be a better way.

Believing that someone at the table across from you, sitting alone looking at their phone, could be a highly valuable business contact, led us to creating a way to connect with them.

Ciaran Haughey spends about one-third of his working life on the road and while he enjoys meeting people and visiting new places, dining on his own is one aspect of business travels he dislikes. The businessman has turned his discomfort with sitting alone in restaurants into a company.

The idea for Table4one came to him a couple of years ago during a business trip in Manchester. He was eating out, and looking around the restaurant, he observed 10 others sitting at tables alone, looking at their phones to pass the time.

·On business, I·d rather travel or meet up with someone I don·t really like than have to eat out alone·.
