Meet the team

Carolyn Mandache

CEO

What do you do at Time2Dine?

CEO, which basically translates as a bit of everything to make sure we are constantly moving forwards, and working well together as a team.

What did you do before?

Before becoming CEO of Time2Dine, I was developing key business skills and contacts via the Entrepreneurial Spark business accelerator program. Having previously co-ran a successful company, I was confident the business would work, and since the concept was an original idea created by myself and my husband, our enthusiasm for the project is excellent motivation.

I was a stay at home parent for many years, with 2 children, and becoming guardian to two nieces. I am a keen writer, and in my spare 5 minutes I’m working on a novel.

What is your favourite part of the job?

I enjoy working with our marketing agency, The Marketing Department, to develop marketing strategies and how to deliver our messaging effectively, as well as connecting with people to seek out opportunities for partnerships and PR or sharing skillsets, knowledge and experience.

My key skills are English (I graduated from the University of Strathclyde with a degree in English literature) and art/design, so I enjoy the creative side of the business.

Why should a restaurant join Time2Dine?

By choosing Time2Dine, restaurants can offer their tech-savvy customers an entirely new, convenient way to dine out.

What is your favourite part of the job?

I enjoy the variety my role entails; working with the tech team and being out of the office watching our hard work in action in restaurants.
