Our Story

Three years ago, Tim Rothwell and Brett Berman set out to create a college lifestyle company that brings people together through food and drink experiences. The idea behind Hooked is that by pairing a good deal with the best restaurants nearby will provide users with an app they can always depend on when deciding where to eat, drink, or socialize. Whether the occasion is a celebration, happy hour, study date, or just plain dinner, Hooked has you covered. While pursuing this college lifestyle app, we quickly learned that Hooked serves a greater purpose than just meal decisions. We're building awareness around local restaurants and driving traffic through their doors during desired times of the day. Hooked is building a bridge between restaurants and the local community, and we could not have imagined how well it would be received.

The adoption we’ve experienced thus far has allowed us to continue growing the business nationwide. Today, Hooked is live in roughly 40 markets across the country; and communities everywhere are realizing its unique benefits. Take a look at the video above to learn more about our story.
