Our Story

We've all been there - you're in a unfamiliar place or foreign city and you have a craving for a certain food. How do you find the best place to satisfy that craving?

For our founder Tim, this was a struggle he experienced far too often.

Whilst on a unplanned road trip to France, Tim ended up in Lille on a warm spring sunday and he craved ice-cream!

After searching for the best ice cream parlour nearby on restaurant rating apps, websites and blogs he gave up in frustration and decided to go to the closest place.

He was surprised, not only did they have raspberry sorbet (his favourite), it was the most amazing he had ever eaten.

On his way back home he starting thinking 'Why was it so hard to find a place that offers great Ice cream. If only there was an app that I could use to find the best raspberry sorbet wherever I am in the world - An app that is all about the food, not the service or the ambience'.

And from that thought, Eaten was born. Tim started building the app the very next day.

Jeeho and Tim met and bonded over a shared extreme love of food and general nerdiness, and the rest is history!  

Jeeho graduated from Georgetown University and began a career in finance, where he has worked in mergers and acquisitions, as well as the private equity industry.  He has been involved with a wide range of companies, starting from food, of course, to ferries.  

In his spare time, he is a starving classically trained chef and loves anything and everything related to pizza.
