Marcos Alves, CEO and funding partner of eltenedor.es, was born in Barcelona 30 years ago. With a passion for the hospitality industry and a born entrepreneur, in 2007 he decided to take on a new project with Patrick Dalsace, Bertrand Jelensperger and Denis Fayolle, creating a restaurant reservations website called lafourchette.com, with the backing of the Eiffel Tower´s famous chef, Alain Ducasse. The company was a success and six months later, they re-launched in Spain with Marcos at the head of the business.
That is how eltenedor.es, the leading online restaurant reservations website in Spain, came about. It was on a course that in a very short time, evolved from a small company to an enterprise that today has more than 150 employees and has made a huge impact on the Spanish restaurant industry.
