Why Restaurants?

When we set out to build Trof we wanted to create a unique experience that no other app is providing. When it came to meeting people we instantly knew adding food to the mix was a must. Humans have been connecting over meals since the dawn of time. Breaking bread together is one of the oldest and most fundamentally unifying human experience. Plus, who doesn’t love eating at amazing local restaurants?!

It all started...

When Lee moved to Colorado Springs, he was so excited to move to a new city. What he didn’t realize is moving to a city where you don’t know anyone can be extremely difficult. Lee spent much of him time alone wishing we was out exploring the town. One day Lee meet Meghan, who had experienced the same issue. Meghan had a great idea! The rest has been history since the idea sparked in Meghan’s mind!

Mission

Trof’s mission to build a sense of community anywhere. Whether moving to a new city or just simply wanting to meet new people in your town, we got you. We want everyone, from the streets of Raleigh to the hills of Silicon Valley, to have an amazing friend group. Life takes a village to navigate through, and it can be difficult to build one. We like to say “we’re your best friend, for finding best friends” and we mean this.
