Where Promotion Meets Palate

August 1, 2009

Driving home from work one day, a foodie spies a new cafe on a nearby corner. “I’d like to try that,” he thinks and continues on your way. Seeing it again the next day, the foodie reminds himself to check it out soon. And so it continues, the next day and the day after that, until one afternoon, the sign is gone and the windows soaped over. offers an innovative solution to this disappointing restaurants community scenario. In partnership with local eateries, brings discounts to food lovers while helping promote local restaurants. The service bridges the gap between menu and mouth, benefiting both the restaurants community and food lover.

In a city-specialized concept similar to Craigslist, offers local restaurant coupons, or stubs. For example, a customer in Chicago, IL will have access to discounts from local restaurant coupons specific to the Chicagoland area.

Stubs are made available to the consumer, or stubber, for limited time periods marked by a countdown timer. During the countdown, stubbers must select, or snatch, desired discounts before the clock expires.

Restaurant partners will offer at least three stubs at a time, but are able to enact up to three pre-approved restrictions per stub, such as “limit one per table.”

On the site, partners will be awarded a search-engine-optimized (SEO) profile with links to eatery home pages. Restaurants community partners will also have access to anonymous usage data for market analysis. With all this powerful information at your fingertip – not to mention viral word-of-mouth marketing for your establishment – hopes to help the restaurants community and local foodies unite!

During the beta launch of the site, local restaurants may join the community and issue stubs free of charge. Once the beta phase has ended, eateries may be assessed a nominal periodic fee, but business owners will be notified well in advance of any pricing changes.

By joining the community, local eateries can gain exposure, reach a larger population, and ultimately increase business, while customers enjoy delicious savings and satisfy their epicuriousity of community restaurants.
