GRUBBRR Leadership

Bhavin Asher

Founder & Chief Technology Officer

Bhavin Asher is a combination of technologist, entrepreneur, consultant, and an all-around problem solver. He learned grass-roots entrepreneurship by trading cotton for his grandfathers business where he bought and sold cotton to garment and textile exporters. After graduating college with a computer science degree, he went to work for IBM first in India and then in Germany.  At IBM, Bhavin immersed himself in the technologies used by large, multi-national corporations.  Next, Bhavin transitioned to a position at Deloitte USA as a CRM Strategy Consultant covering numerous vertical markets including healthcare, telecommunications, software, and technology companies.  Deloitte provided a further learning ground to understand how successful businesses leverage technology to scale and grow. This role exposed him to Fortune 500 companies that were looking for direction on automating their businesses. Furthermore, Deloitte shaped Bhavin by giving him broad international exposure and acumen. After 3 ½ years at Deloitte, Bhavin wanted exposure to recurring income businesses and took a position at Liberty Power as a technology architect and consultant.  He implemented every strategy and tactic he learned as a consultant to automate Liberty Power’s business. At the next stage of his career, Bhavin wanted to work where he could utilize the accumulation of all of his knowledge and thus ended up at Salesforce as a Director/Solutions Architect. During his stint at Salesforce, Bhavin helped companies innovate by taking existing legacy software and using Salesforce technologies to reengineer existing business processes.

The idea of Grubbrr was born when Bhavin took his wife out for a Valentines Day dinner. Bhavin became frustrated by an excessive wait and started asking technology and process questions of the restaurant staff. It was there that he realized how archaic and outdated restaurant technologies are and started Grubbrr out of a desire to reduce or eliminate wait times. His intent is to bring innovation to the restaurant, retail, and hospitality verticals.
