Alex Bar­rotti

Toronto Life - - Tech Boom -


Alex Bar­rotti net­ted a $45-mil­lion exit from Inex, his e-com­merce plat­form, in 1999. Eleven years later, the idea for an­other start-up sparked in an usual place: a sushi spot in the Car­ib­bean. His friend, the owner, said he wished there was a way to send or­ders di­rectly from the ta­ble to the kitchen. So Bar­rotti dove into the restau­rant busi­ness and launched TouchBistro, a tablet app that lets din­ers or­der food, and man­agers mon­i­tor the speed and qual­ity of ser­vice. The app, which is used in 700-plus Toronto restau­rants, han­dles more than $3 bil­lion in trans­ac­tions ev­ery year.
