Dinner Lab is a membership-based supper club and culinary events startup that brings up-and-coming chefs together with food lovers in unique locations all around the country. Now in 31 cities, Dinner Lab is expanding once again.
The startup has acquired San Francisco-based Dishcrawl, a competitor that is considered the closest model to Dinner Lab.
Dinner Lab is up to around 75,000 members across the country. This deal will double its members with the addition of Dishcrawl’s members.
This deal will open a new door for Dinner Lab, who now plans to take diners to a number of venues in a single night. The “bar crawl for restaurants” idea comes directly for Dishcrawl.
“It’s a perfect fit for us in terms of product, and what she’s offering is something that could be a new format and a perfect crossover with our target members,” says Dinner Lab co-founder Zach Kupperman, who is also the owner of Silicon Bayou News.
Dishcrawl founder Tracy Lee will join the Dinner Lab team, which plans to begin offering the restaurant crawls in the second quarter of 2016.
