Bar Stool Reservation - Episode 624 - 4/24/2015
|Snag-A-Stool Bar Seating Reservation App|
appearing on Shark Tank Episode 624
The entrepreneurs behind the Snag A Stool app is Jamie Manning and Adriano Varassin who'll be appearing in the next Shark Tank Episode 624 this Friday night. The Snag-A-Stool business model draws two different types of customers based on supply and demand for reserving a barstool at different times. First is the "Premium Bar Stool' Reservations" during busy times like Sporting Events when the Bar or Pub's typically filled. If you paid for a premium bar stool via the App, you're guaranteed to have a great seat no matter how busy they are.

The other business model Snag A Stool will be demonstrating on the Shark Tank is the Free version offered during slow times. Obviously you wouldn't go out of your way renting a bar stool when the establishment isn't busy, but you might if offered a small reward. Maybe a free appetizer or the first round on the house would certainly fill a few tables or stools. Bar Owners connected to the Snag-A-Stool App can offer whatever incentive they'd like to help fill empty bar stools and tables during off-peak hours. How much a Bar or Pub pays Snag A Stool App for filling seats remains to be seen, we'll have to wait for this Shark Tank Episode to air to learn that question.
Snag A Stool App Reviews before Shark Tank ShowCurrently, the Snag A Stool App is only available at the iTune's App Store and not on Android. The FAQ does hint it's in development for Android and will be available soon. The last update was earlier this Month and not enough ratings yet obtained to post average reviews.
I understand the free version's marketing plan filling empty Bar Stools during off-peak hours, but the premium bar stools reserved during a major event not as much. For instance, what if a large group of people reserved all the Snag A Stool's available and then never showed up to pay for their seats? Not only is the establishment losing money every minute the seats are empty, but could potentially rub a few customer's with limited seating the wrong way. Of course, they could always download the Snag A Stool App real fast and hope no one shows up for the reservations.
Watch the latest App to be Featured on the next Brand New Shark Tank this Friday night in Episode 624 and see if Jamie and Adriano can snag a Shark or two.
