Here's What Owners Are Saying About TastePro

What is TastePro?

Simply put, TastePro is The Best Way To Try New Restaurants. Locals and travelers alike use us to discover multiple restaurants over the course of a single meal. We're based on the age-old concept of food tours, which have operated for decades in major cities worldwide. 


We've brought that experience to the masses, with self-guided food tours that are as easy to book and enjoy as a standard meal out, and all the adventure and novelty of a food tour. Here's how it works for consumers:

1. Browse

They browse restaurants and select their favorites. Each restaurant lists a tasting menu—typically smaller-sized portions of signature items—as well as the days and times they accept TastePro bookings

2. Book

They book and prepay for each restaurant, specifying their tour date. Payment covers tasting menu items, tax and tip for each stop


TastePro will pay you automatically

3. Enjoy

They visit each restaurant at a valid time, showing their booking confirmation upon arrival. They'll order from your tasting menu, and pay separately for any additional items

What is TastePro and why will it benefit my business?

TastePro allows people to create customized, self-guided food tours, where they can explore an entire city’s food scene all at once. Building on food tours and food festivals from around the world, TastePro offers trendsetting personalization and freedom for an unparalleled dining experience. 

Customers browse restaurants and create a tour with their favorites, pay an all-inclusive price (including tip), and then visit each restaurant at their leisure, during any valid time throughout the day. Each stop features a tasting menu of a restaurant’s signature dishes. 


TastePro was designed with restaurant owners and staff in mind, and provides tremendous benefits that directly impact your revenue, traffic, and reach without eating into your current business: 

  • Boost traffic during off-hours 
  • Convert more prospective guests into paying customers 
  • Convert more first-time visitors into returning loyalists 
  • Gain exposure to a broad new audience of ‘perfect’ guests
  • Increase upsell 
  • Increase word-of-mouth marketing 

The power is always in your hands: Accept TastePro guests when you want, serve and charge what you want, and set policies to prevent latecomers, no-shows and any other pain points you may have. 


TastePro is free to join, with no membership fees, subscription fees or any other out-of-pocket costs. Our main goal is to boost your business without changing anything you’re already doing. 


We encourage you to contact us at Info@GoTastePro.com to get started.

How does TastePro work for restaurants?

TastePro was designed with restaurants in mind. We know how hectic it can get in the kitchen and dining room so we made TastePro simple and low-tech. We know you get approached by groups that ‘promise to bring in more customers…for a small fee’ all the time, so we made TastePro free to join. We're a risk-free approach to boosting traffic during your off-hours. 


It takes just a few minutes to list your restaurant on TastePro, and about 30 seconds to train your staff before you're up and running. We take care of everything and let you know when we’re sending customers your way.


Here’s how TastePro works for restaurants:

  1. Email us at Info@GoTastePro.com. 
  2. We’ll follow up with a form for you to create your listing page, which takes 5 - 10 minutes to complete
  3. Schedule a limited-time complimentary professional photo shoot, valued at $3,500*. Your listing will go live shortly afterward
  4. Customers book your restaurant on TastePro and present their email confirmations upon arrival. Staff verify them in 5 easy steps. You'll also receive an email every time a customer books, to retain for your records
  5. Serve each group and take the opportunity to upsell and offer incentives for return visits if desired 
  6. TastePro will issue payment shortly afterward 

How long does it take to sign up on TastePro?

Listing your restaurant on TastePro only takes a few minutes. No hardware or tech knowledge needed, and staff training should take less than a minute. Email us at Info@GoTastePro.com to get started.

Will TastePro change any of my normal operations?

TastePro is designed to have little-to-no impact on your regular operations, and actually increases turnover in many cases. There are only a few things to take into account:

  • Since customers pre-pay for their tour (including tip) and TastePro handles payment for you, your staff won’t have to issue a bill to TastePro customers, unless they order additional food and drink during their visit.
  • Customers will present a confirmation email upon arrival to show that they've pre-paid. You can see how easy it is for staff to verify these emails by viewing our Staff Instructions.
  • Since tasting menu portions are typically 1/3 their normal size, your kitchen staff should be trained in how to prepare those dishes. Alternatively, you can serve regular-size items if desired. 

Which cities have TastePro?

TastePro is currently operational in select pockets of Southern California, with significant expansion forthcoming. If you're located outside Southern California, we'd like to hear from you. Email us at Info@GoTastePro.com

Why is it good for other restaurants near me to also list on TastePro?

When planning their tours, TastePro customers typically look for restaurants within walking distance of one another. The more restaurants that appear in a given area, the more likely guests are to book tours in that area. 


We understand that your neighbors are typically your closest competitors. On TastePro, they’re your best friends. Restaurant districts in other neighborhoods are your competitors in this case. 


TastePro offers a generous referral bonus to anyone who refers a new restaurant. Please email us at Info@GoTastePro.com to send someone our way.

How is TastePro different from regular dining service?

TastePro closely resembles a standard dining experience: customers select your restaurant based on their research, make a reservation, arrive, and are served. But while standard guests will be at your restaurant for a full meal, TastePro guests are likely dining with you as part of a 3 – 4-stop self-guided food tour. 


Here are some more key differences between TastePro and standard dining:

  • TastePro customers can only visit you during times that you choose, which don’t have to include peak meal periods if you’re already full during those times 
  • TastePro customers order from a tasting menu that you set, which is typically a preset or limited menu that features signature items in smaller portion sizes 
  • TastePro customers pre-pay for their meal, tax and tip included, at a price you set. This price will typically be lower than your average check, since you’re serving smaller portions. 
  • TastePro handles payment, so customers are only required to pay for any additional food and drink that they order during their visit 
  • TastePro customers will typically spend less time at your restaurant, since they are likely visiting multiple restaurants in a row. This should provide higher turnover 

Why am I expected to offer lower prices than what's listed on my standard menu?

TastePro seeks to create The Ultimate Foodie Experience for customers who value great food and drink and the adventure of exploring a community’s food scene over just getting a deal. 


Restaurants typically post a price on TastePro that’s far lower than their average check per customer. This reflects the smaller portion sizes being served. Since TastePro customers visit 3 – 4 restaurants on a typical tour, we recommend that each restaurant’s tasting menu offers items at ~1/3 their normal portion size. 


Serving smaller portion sizes in this way has several benefits:

  • Customers don’t want to fill up at their first stop, so this is a rare opportunity where smaller portions are well-received 
  • You’re able to introduce prospective customers to your restaurant at a lower price point without a discount. This means fewer one-time bargain hunters and more potential loyalists 
  • Tasting menus can be ‘menu blind,’ with portion sizes preventing customers from directly comparing the cost of their tasting menu items to the cost of those dishes on your regular menu 

If you’re a small plates restaurant or want to serve standard menu items on your tasting menu, you have the ability to do that as well. We understand that cutting portion sizes down may be more difficult for some restaurants than others, which is why you have the freedom to create the tasting menu that you see fit.

Who uses TastePro and what makes them such great guests?

TastePro promotes itself to people who live for food. They’re a mix of tourists and locals, with the shared goal of discovering new restaurants. They’re more prone to upsell and more likely to return to your restaurant for a full visit in the future.

Will TastePro take away from my current traffic?

TastePro is designed to bring in new guests without affecting your existing business. 


You have complete control over setting the days and hours for accepting TastePro bookings. You are not required to accept TastePro guests during peak meal times if you’re already full during those hours. 


You also have the ability to set time limits for TastePro guests, to prevent people from lingering into your peak hours. 


You can change your listing’s days, hours and time limit anytime.

Why would I use TastePro if the average check will be lower?

The lower average check for TastePro guests is reflective of the smaller portion sizes being served. Since TastePro customers visit 3 – 4 restaurants during a tour, we recommend that each restaurant’s tasting menu offers items at ~1/3 their normal portion size. 


TastePro seeks to boost your traffic during off-hours, filling seats that would otherwise remain empty. Most customers may not have discovered you without TastePro, or weren’t ready to commit to a full meal at your restaurant. While the average check may be lower with these customers, it should still allow you to see higher profits, as well as gain invaluable exposure to a new customer base. 


You have the additional option to upsell TastePro customers on additional food and drink from your standard menu, as well as provide follow-up offers that incentivize a full visit in the future. 


You have complete control of the price you list for your restaurant on TastePro, and can change it anytime.

How much does it cost to join TastePro?

TastePro is completely free to join. There are no membership fees, subscription fees, or any other out-of-pocket expenses, making TastePro a risk-free experience. 


TastePro operates on a commission-only basis, so we only make money off the new business we generate for you. You’ll find our commission rates to be very favorable. Email us at Info@GoTastePro.com to inquire about our rates and how to list your restaurant.

Do I need a tablet or other hardware to use TastePro?

TastePro does not require any hardware. Booking confirmations are sent to you via email.

What restaurants are best-suited to be on TastePro? Are bars okay?

What if my restaurant moves or I change its name?

If your restaurant moves locations or changes its name, please email us at Info@TastePro.com and we will update your information immediately.

What is a tasting menu and what should I serve on it?

Tasting menus allow TastePro guests to experience the best of each restaurant they visit. Tasting menus typically feature a selection of signature or top-selling items from your restaurant’s standard menu, served at ~1/3 their normal portion size. 


You can choose to offer a prix-fixe tasting menu or a limited menu that allows TastePro customers to choose from several options. We recommend keeping your tasting menu to just your top signature dishes. 


You have full control over setting the price of your tasting menu. Your price should include any applicable tax as well as a tip for your staff. 


Your tasting menus is displayed when a customer finds your restaurant on the Create a Tour map, as well as on your listing page. You can change your tasting menu at any time.

How much food should I serve on my tasting menu?

Most TastePro tours consist of 3 – 4 restaurants. We recommend that you serve your tasting menu items at ~1/3 their normal portion size, or that your tasting menu equates to 1/3 of a full meal.

What should I do about allergies and dietary restrictions?

TastePro guests will specify any allergies and dietary restrictions after they’re seated, so you can address these issues in the same way as with standard guests.   


TastePro customers know that it’s their responsibility to examine each restaurant’s tasting menu and assess for potential dietary/allergy issues before booking their tour.

Can you show me an example of a tasting menu? 

Here are some examples of what a tasting menu could look like:

  • If a standard taco entrée includes three tacos with beans and rice, a prix fixe tasting menu could be one chicken taco with a half serving of beans and rice 
  • Using the example above, a limited menu would allow guests to choose between a chicken or a fish taco, with a half serving of beans and rice 
  • If you want guests to choose from multiple items in multiple categories, the tasting menu could be a choice of one of three available entrees, two of four available side items, and any drink under on the menu under $10

Can I serve drinks on my tasting menu?

Yes, you can serve drinks on your tasting menu, whether alcoholic or nonalcoholic.

Can guests also order off my regular menu?

Yes, guests can order from your standard menu while on a TastePro tour. Guests are aware that they will be financially responsible for any items not included on your tasting menu. 


While we understand your desire to encourage guests to order items from the standard menu, we also kindly ask you to keep upsell attempts in moderation and good taste.

Does TastePro integrate with my reservation platform?

At this time, TastePro bookings are communicated via email and TastePro doesn’t integrate with reservation platforms. Since TastePro is meant to boost your traffic during off-hours, we expect it to be a convenient supplement to your reservation system, and that it won’t disrupt operations.

How do TastePro customer prove that they’ve pre-paid? 

When a customer books your restaurant on their tour, you’ll receive a confirmation email with their name, tour date, group size and booking number. That customer receives a similar email, known as their booking confirmation. 


Upon arrival, TastePro customers will present their booking confirmations to the host, cashier, manager or any other staff member you designate. That staff member will be able to verify that the information matches. 


TastePro will issue payment shortly after the customer’s tour date.

How do I know when a customer books?

When a customer books your restaurant on their tour, you’ll receive a confirmation email with their name, tour date, group size and booking number. This email is sent out automatically as soon as the customer completes their booking.

Can I set a deadline for customers to book so I don't have to deal with last-minute bookings?

Yes, you can specify booking deadlines if desired.

How does TastePro prevent customers from lingering?

TastePro seeks to boost your business during off-hours without impacting your busy periods. TastePro guests are naturally inclined to spend less time at each restaurant, since they are visiting 3 – 4 restaurants at a time. While we don’t anticipate TastePro guests lingering long enough to affect peak times, we’ve created a time limit policy that you can set for your listing. 


Time limits place a maximum amount of time that TastePro guests can spend at your restaurant during their tour. Your time limit should always be longer than your expected duration, so guests should never feel rushed. Time limits are clearly posted on your listing page. You will be responsible for enforcing your time limit in the unlikely event that a TastePro guest lingers for too long. 


If you’re still worried about lingering guests, we recommend that you set your time window to end long before your rush typically starts.

What happens if a TastePro customer cancels or no-shows?

TastePro allows customers to cancel up to 11:59pm the day before their tour. You will be notified automatically via email if this happens. 


If a customer cancels after this deadline or no-shows, they will not be eligible for a refund (barring extenuating circumstances) and you will still be paid. 


You have the option of listing your restaurant as ‘flexible,’ which means that you are willing to accept a TastePro booking up to 7 days before or 7 days after the designated tour date. If you select this option, the no-show policy listed above would only apply 7 days after the customer’s designated tour date.

What are kid policies and why does TastePro have them?

Kid policies allow you to regulate parties seeking to bring children, as well as communicate whether guests must be of legal drinking age. You will be responsible for enforcing your kid policy, and you have the right to refuse service to violators without issuing a refund.You’ll have the option to choose from one of the following kid policies when creating your TastePro listing:

You’ll have the option to choose from one of the following dress code when creating your TastePro listing:

What is expected duration and why does TastePro have this feature?

Expected duration is the average amount of time that guests will spend at your restaurant during their TastePro tour. This mostly includes time to get seated, place orders, enjoy the tasting menu and savor the moment after finishing. Expected duration helps guests plan their tours around timing logistics.


Since TastePro tours cover 3 – 4 restaurants at a time, expected duration should be shorter for TastePro customers than for regular guests.

What are time limits and why does TastePro have them?

While we don’t anticipate TastePro guests lingering long enough to affect peak times, we’ve created a time limit policy that you can set for your listing. Time limits place a maximum amount of time that TastePro guests can spend at your restaurant during their tour. 


Your time limit should always be longer than your expected duration, so guests should never feel rushed. You will be responsible for enforcing your time limit in the unlikely event that a TastePro guest lingers for too long.

Where can I find TastePro's restaurant partner terms and related information?

How do I get paid?

Customers pay TastePro for their tours upon booking. TastePro then issue payment to you shortly after each customer’s tour date. You do not collect payment from customers directly, unless they order additional food or drink during their tour.


TastePro offers three options for restaurants to receive payment:

  • We can pay you bi-weekly via electronic payment, using platforms such as Zelle or PayPal
  • We can pay you bi-weekly by check. A small fee applies to cover postage 
  • We can keep a credit card on file for you to charge as customers come in

If you require a different method of payment, we'd be happy to work with you in making an alternate arrangement.

How much does it cost to list my restaurant on TastePro?

TastePro is free to join and requires no out-of-pocket expenses. We designed TastePro to be a completely risk-free experience.

What do you mean by set an all-inclusive price?

The price you post on your listing covers your tasting menu's food and drink, as well as tax and gratuity. TastePro customers pre-pay for their tours upon booking, so including these costs up front is necessary. You have complete control in setting your listing price, as well as the tip amount that you’d like to factor in. 


TastePro customers are responsible for additional charges during their visit, such as food and drink not included on your tasting menu.

How should I factor tips into my price?

You have complete control of the tip amount that you factor into your price listed on TastePro. We recommend factoring a generous tip into your listing price. You will be responsible for issuing TastePro this tip money to the appropriate staff members after you have been paid out.

What should I charge?

Since a typical tasting menu equates to 1/3 of a full meal, it’s expected that the average check for a TastePro customer would be lower than usual. TastePro customers operate under the assumption that a 3 – 4 stop tour should cost about the same as a full meal at a restaurant of similar caliber, so we recommend taking this into account.

If it’s free to list my restaurant, How does TastePro make money?

TastePro operates on a commission-only basis, so we only make money off the new business we generate for you. You’ll find our commission rates to be very favorable.
