Tabit Technologies, a mobile-first hospitality platform founded in Israel, announced the grand opening of its new U.S. headquarters in Aventura.  “This new space gives us a strategic opportunity to bring on new talent and better serve our partners as we continue to grow,”  said Tabit co-founder and President Nadav Solomon.

At nearly 5,500 square feet, the offices at One Turnberry Place, 19495 Biscayne Blvd., will serve as Tabit’s corporate headquarters in the U.S. and will house 70 employees. The design mirrors the company’s focus on mobile technology and innovation.

Tabit’s all-in-one platform helps restaurants digitize their operations such as reservations and payments, without the major costs that other providers charge. “Reservations can cost $1 per head, delivery companies charge 30 to 40 percent, and payment companies often take 3 to 5 percent of sales,” Solomon said in an earlier interview with Refresh Miami. Solomon noted that the company’s mobile devices can increase sales while also ensuring quicker table turns – all while improving the accuracy of orders.

Tabit was co-founded by Solomon and Barry Shaked in Tel Aviv in 2014. Prior to founding Tabit, Solomon was a lieutenant commander in the Israeli Navy in charge of  command and control systems before studying biotechnology and food engineering and working at Ernst & Young as a senior strategic consultant for the food industry. Shaked founded the Israeli company Retalix, the biggest point-of-sale company for the grocery and retail industries that sold in 2012 to NCR for about $800 million.

Since launching U.S. operations in 2020, Tabit now serves thousands of restaurants and hotels globally and has over 300 employees with offices in New York City, NY; Little Rock, AR; Boise, ID; Charleston, SC; Detroit, MI and Dallas, TX.

In South Florida, Tabit’s platform is used by a diverse set of restaurants, including Novikov, Serafina, The Setai, KYU, and Rosa Sky. The startup, which employs about 50 in the Miami area, has also partnered with FIU on initiatives such as teaching students how to use their mobile point of sale technology and helping modernize the school’s tech stack. Making its HQ in South Florida makes sense, as hospitality is one of the region’s largest industries and the Miami metro area is an emerging tech hub.

Tabit recently closed a $40 million funding round, bringing their total amount of external capital raised to $105 million.
