Toptable.co.uk is launching a text-based service in the new year. Karen Hanton, who founded the online restaurant booking service five years ago, said people who were out and about would be able to find restaurants nearby and book a table in minutes. Toptable expects to make its first profit of several hundred thousand pounds this year and will turn over about £3m. The Times (Money) 31/12/05 page 12
