SupperKing: Invite Strangers to Dinner
The brainchild of German entrepreneur Kai Stubbe, SupperKing is an iPhone app that’s designed to enable peer-to-peer domestic dining experiences.
Driven by Stubbe’s own experience of moving from Germany to the US four years ago, SupperKing allows budding chefs to open up their next dinner party to sociable strangers. “I was always looking to sit at a table in someone’s home and get insight and news about a city,” he says. “The main goal of the app is to bring people together, and it’s much easier to meet people over food and drinks.”
The app lets hosts set up a description, which includes, date, time, location and cost per seat. Diners can search for tables by price, neighborhood, and type of food. Payment is integrated into the service, and SupperKing takes a 10% commission. In the future, the app will add a photo-uploading feature, and hosts will have the option to live stream their events so that other app users can check out the dinners that they’re missing.
