Tray Bien: The New Way to Serve

$20,274

216

Welcome to the smarter way to serve. Perfect for restaurants, caterers, casinos, cruises, and for you dinner-party moms and dads!

Tray Bien's sleek, minimalistic tray locks glasses in place and lowers the center of gravity, making it easier and more stable to comfortably serve your favorite beverages.

Through this Kickstarter campaign, Tray Bien wants to gather the financial support necessary to continue manufacturing and expanding our distribution reach.

Here we are today: asking you to help bring the Tray Bien solution to your favorite restaurant and make it easier (and look edgier/cooler/more hip) to serve drinks.

Each tray is two-sided with a mahogany finish on one side and a cherry finish on the other. Sitting here is the limited edition lone pine tray, available with a pledge of $75 or more.

Krystyna and Shinri want to THANK YOU so much for your support! It means the world to us, and anything you can give will help us reach our goal of bringing our solution into the market. We hope you're as happy carrying your Tray Bien tray as we are!

A huge thank you to the special people who helped Tray Bien get off the ground.

We couldn't have done it without our team: Kevin Baron, Chip Brettell, Jamie Coughlin, Trip Davis, Gregg Fairbrothers, Doug Fraser, Gail Gentes, Catalina Gorla, Sean Hammett, Phil Hanlon, Joseph Helble, Olivia Holmes, Kevin McClamroch, Bill Nisen, Peter Robbie, Annie Saunders, Urlike Wegst, Holly Wilkinson, and many many more who guided and supported us through the process.

Risks and challenges

It's a fun challenge starting our first company while being college students enrolled in those tricky engineering courses, but we are working our hardest to make our product and our company the best they can be.
