with LocalEats to integrate best dining deals with best local
restaurants across America.
NEW YORK CITY - (December 6, 2011) - BiteHunter,
the first real-time search engine for dining deals, and LocalEats, a top-selling travel app
dedicated to helping diners find the best locally owned restaurants
in America, announced an official partnership today. The
partnership integrates the two mobile apps' content to bring users
a curated guide to the top locally owned restaurants with the best
dining deals in real-time.
BiteHunter and LocalEats marry up content from each mobile app -
dining deal information and curated local restaurant guide - to
deliver the best possible prices at the best restaurants in
America. Both apps solve problems in the marketplace, whether that
be allowing for consumers to find available deals without
registering for daily deal emails and newsletters, or allowing
business travelers to find the best eats no matter where they are.
Featuring more than 15,000 restaurants in more than 50 markets
across the US, LocalEats can now pair up carefully chosen
restaurants with the best dining deals.
"We've been looking forward to this partnership with LocalEats
because we both have a vision of bringing the best of the best to
our users," said Gil Harel, CEO & co-founder of BiteHunter.
"LocalEats is a top dining and travel app, and each of our content
can only benefit our users. This new integration will take each app
above and beyond others on the market."
LocalEats app users will see BiteHunter's icon in the restaurant
detail page, which reveals available deals at that location. When
clicking the deal, they will go directly to the deal source.
BiteHunter will provide users LocalEats' restaurant synopsis if a
deal is from a LocalEats-selected restaurant, helping them to make
better restaurant choices.
"Collaborating with BiteHunter gives LocalEats users an
advantage when dining out at LocalEats-selected restaurants," said
Shannon Austin, strategic development officer of LocalEats. "Users
can check the app at home or on the road and know they're getting
the best deal available at that restaurant on that day. BiteHunter
is a pioneer in the deal aggregation space, and their intense focus
on the dining space mirrors our own. This partnership can only
benefit restaurants as more customers discover them and feel
confident they're getting a great value for their dining
