The Scenario

The idea of Tailgreeter was born after brothers, co-founders, and fans of the tailgate experience, Nick and Mirko, stumbled on the problem of how hard tailgating could be while trying to plan a road trip to Alabama (Roll Tide).

The idea was simple: create a marketplace that would give fans access to great tailgates everywhere they go! Instead of having to tailgate on their own, fans could join together with a group of people who were already out there. Everyone would get to join in on all of the fun without any of the hassles. From the food and drink recipes to the games and traditions, the tailgating experience would guarantee to make memories that lasted a lifetime. Tailgreeter was founded to tell these stories of fascinating communities of tailgaters so that more people could experience the best way to spend a day.

In the parking lot, everyone is welcome. Fans show up in droves to support and take pride in competing for the title of Most Passionate. The pregame festivities set the stage for the day and have earned their place as a necessary piece of a complete gameday experience. The tailgate itself is a way for fans to express their love and passion for a team and city, and has become representative of everything that makes this world great. The camaraderie and community in the parking lots allow everyone to be themselves no matter where they’re from or what they’re passionate about. When it comes down to it, there’s no denying the allure of the gameday experience, and tailgating is the glue that holds it all together.

Tailgreeter also gives the community access to a suite of features that makes hosting easier, including the ability to charge ahead of time, organize accurate guest lists, send out mobile notifications, check guests in when they get there, and more! Tailgreeter can also help add visibility to a tailgate, introduce sponsorship opportunities, and is always looking for ways to support the charities and fundraising efforts of every host. Tailgating together can help make the world a better place one parking lot at a time. Tailgreeter invites you to join what one wise man from Texas described as “the last great American neighborhood.”

A message from our CEO and Founder

I’ve been a fan of live events and tailgating for as long as I can remember! Once you’re out in the parking lot, everything going on in the rest of the world seems to disappear. For a few hours, the only thing that matters is the people around you. I loved that feeling, and quickly realized I wasn’t the only one. The problem was how difficult it was to replicate that feeling if I was going to a different stadium. So, to solve that problem, I teamed up with my brother and started reaching out to other tailgate hosts around the country. Every person we talked to had a fascinating story about their tailgates, including starting incredible and unique traditions, and building these amazing communities filled with the most welcoming people we had ever come across.

The goals of Tailgreeter very quickly became obvious:

• Tell the stories of these amazing tailgate hosts to anyone willing to listen
• Make tailgating more accessible everywhere by giving fans the opportunity to tailgate together instead of trying to do it themselves
• Help amplify the charitable efforts going on at each tailgate
• Build the most helpful set of features to make hosting easier for more people to be able to do it

We have the knowledge and the know—how of the business and tech side of the company, and our hosts have the knowledge and know-how to make tailgating easy so that everyone can experience the best way to spend a day. We look forward to building these relationships and show how important the tailgate is to a complete gameday experience. This past year has shown me that there is no better time than now to get out and enjoy spending time with friends and family, meet new and interesting people, experience incredible local traditions all over the country, and of course, eat, drink, and be merry! Thank you for giving us a chance to be a part of your story. Signature from Tailgreeter CEO and founder Nick Akrap
