As a guest-facing hospitality company, we're committed to supporting independent restaurants and the diverse communities they serve.

Our members are guests & customers - not "users".

People & personal data are not products to be sold or leveraged.

Hospitality technology & AI should be used to enhance human connection - not replace it. 

Deep personalization is the hallmark of genuine hospitality.

Our Values are our vertebrae.

How It All Started

"Having worked in restaurants for over three decades, I'm often asked to recommend "another great bar" or asked "What’s your favorite restaurant in that city?" or "Where would be a good place to take my husband for our anniversary", etc...

But I've always said that asking me to recommend a great meal or "The Best restaurant" in a particular city, is a lot like telling me you’re going out for ice cream and asking me to choose the best flavor.

In other words, I've always believed that "The Best" is subjective.

So, in the interest of wanting everyone to enjoy themselves as much as possible, I've always tried to learn as much as I can about their personal likes and dislikes before ever making a recommendation.

I ask questions like:

“Where have you eaten before that you really liked and what did you like most about it?”

“Where have you been that you'd never go back... and what made it so disappointing?”

“What are some of your other favorite places... and why?”

“Do you have any food allergies, dietary restrictions or have any foods that you simply don’t like or wouldn’t even consider trying?”

“What do you consider 'good service'?"

etc...

The list goes on and on... and, while it may sound tedious, the more information I gather about someone - the more reliable (and appreciated) my recommendations tend to be.

So, while my own personal recommendations may have served as a sort of an "organic proof of concept" - the method wasn't scalable.

So we built an app that does it all automatically with predictive analytics...which is really just a fancy way of saying Paire is a unique and proprietary computer program that automates the "getting to know someone part" (aka: machine learning) since that's the part that's so vital to making reliable recommendations. Our AI then uses that information to calculate each person’s individual compatibility with restaurants and bars everywhere.

In short, we've built the first personal A.I. recommendations engine for people who are really serious about food and like to travel.

Paire also offers the world's most advanced restaurant & bar bucket list maker to help you organize & share your lists of the places you don't want to forget.

It's ironic - we found that the best way to remove bias from restaurant recommendations was to create a platform that actually serves as a celebration of each person's bias by listening to and acting on each person's opinions instead of just broadcasting them."
