Our story

Freer Technology was born out of our founders mutual love of technology and drinking. Our CEO, Duncan Freer, was introduced to Paul DiBenedetto by a mutual acquaintance in a restaurant in the suburbs of Chicago. The conversation quickly revolved around the distinct lack of disruptive technologies in the beverage and restaurant industries. In a very short space of time, the company was formed and the first prototype relating to an augmented reality promotional experience was developed. The prototype was initially shown to friends and family that included people actively involved in the beverage industry. The feedback from everyone was initial amazement followed by inquiries around how they could invest in the company. It was at that precise point in time our founders realized that they had created the first of many great ideas that would have applications in the beverage industry and beyond.
