At the time, the pair lived in Brooklyn, New York, planning upwards of twenty events yearly!  With so many events, Justin quickly found himself searching for party-planning tools that could make these events easier to plan and navigate.  “I wanted something straightforward, very to the point,” Justin explains. “I didn’t need a lot of bells and whistles... I thought, ‘I can build something for myself,’...and so I came up with the idea for what is now as a way for Sarah and me to have one way to organize all of this fun stuff we were doing.” And so, Potluck was born.
