tapChow is a real-world solution to real-world problems.  Restaurants largely do not know who their customers are.  Their various marketing efforts are disconnected, expensive, and generally do not return a hard-dollar ROI.  Our mission is clear -- we provide mid-market restaurant chains with a unified platform to identify and then continuously engage their customers with a verifiable increase in profitable revenue and a consequent decrease in marketing spend.

We are experienced and successful entrepreneurs.  Sam has extensive business experience and a proven execution track record.  With his first company, Sam spent eighteen years designing, building, and programming mission-critical control spaces for the military and intelligence community. He grew up in the restaurant space and continues to have a hand in the family’s remaining restaurant.  When not exploring San Diego’s eclectic restaurant scene (or launching a new business), he’s busy at home experimenting with new cuisine and techniques.

Our Advisory Board is comprised of world-class business and technology leaders.  This team of domain experts is committed to mentoring tapChow down a path of near-perfect focus and implementation.  We are grateful for their confidence in our model and team and continue to work closely with them to bring value to both our customers and investors.
