Alocito is a dining platform that specializes in Dine-In Mobile Ordering. Our service is designed for those who want a full dine-in experience but have limited time (lunch breaks, before a movie, etc). The Alocito app allows customers the ability to select a restaurant, access the full menu, place an order, pay and tip ahead of time. The restaurant gets notification of the order and can begin preparing the food. When the customer arrives, their table and meal are ready and the bill (and gratuity) are paid. This provides the customer the opportunity to enjoy an awesome sit-down experience in about half the time so they can get back to work, catch their movie, or just get on with their lives.

For restaurants, Alocito is a great way to attract new customers who would otherwise bypass their establishment and opt instead for a drive through or fast casual. And while takeout is always an option, restaurants would prefer to give customers all that they have to offer in terms of se...

And while takeout is always an option, restaurants would prefer to give customers all that they have to offer in terms of service and experience. And customers, want more options and the chance to enjoy a break.

Phil and I have had the pleasure of knowing each other for almost 4 years now. Being a technology entrepreneur myself, has made for some great conversations and strategic planning discussions. Phil is a very ambitious entrepreneur and I believe he will succeed with any direction he chooses to take. I believe he will be a great asset and leader that stands out in any crowd.

Phil LaColla is one of the most motivated and dedicated entrepreneurs I know. When I first heard about his Alocito idea I thought it was genius! Its an idea that makes perfect sense for both the restaurant and it's consumers. I want this app to launch so I can start using it myself!

I am honored to be asked by Phil LaColla to write this recommendation. I have never been in business and know Phil only as a friend. We are fellow parishioners of St. Chrysostom"s Episcopal Church in Chicago; that's where we met about two years ago, when Phil was new to our city. We have since become friends, and I have introduced him to two other friends who are fellow entrepreneurs about the same age as he is. I admire Phil for his combination of energy, ambition, and vision combined with steady application and self-discipline, on the one hand, and solid integrity and old-fashioned morality, loyalty, and kindness on the other. He would be contribute helpfully and graciously to any organization he joined; yours would be better for having him.

Dining on your own time? I value my time. I am always finding ways to get more tasks completed with the time I am provided in a day. I often forego a meal to complete a task due to lack of time to sit down, order, wait for food, wait for bill, check out . Alocito provides an opportunity to order food, show up when it's ready, and leave when you are done.

Expediting mealtime is a necessary service in a world that demands so much of ones time. A service which benefits the consumer by removing the wait associated with dining out will also benefit the restaurant partners by increasing volume of customers able to be serviced.

Phil LaColla is a business minded innovator and intuitive thinker. Phil not only recognizes opportunities, he creates them. Phil turns ideas into action and action into a deliverable product or implementable process. Alocito is in need of execution specific guidance to keep development costs in budget as well as prioritizing tasks to deliver a final product.

Phil is a dedicated, smart and flexible entrepreneur. I have seen him leverage his management and technical skills, taking Alocito from a rough concept to the prototype development process. I have every expectation that Phil's company will succeed and thrive.
