Zoko, our company name, comes from the Basque word txoko – a gastronomical society.  These groups of friends would regularly meet to eat, drink, sing and talk.  (If your zoko includes singing, send us some video of it!) 

Many of the early txokos would go as far as purchasing a home together, which served as a space to share their meals.  Regardless of the arrangement, these groups were arranged communally from the outset.

Much like the original txokos, Zoko’s intent is to make it easier for people to connect face-to-face over good food.
