Share your food experience with the world and claim your food expert status with our iPhone app using HD video.
We aim to revolutionize the way people discover new foods. There are hundreds of food discovery applications focusing on where to eat; our goal is to be the primary source for what to eat and how to find it.
We employe a B-2-B and a B-2-C model as follows:
B-2-C: All our content is generated by users. The content is mainly video captured using our mobile app and uploaded to share with the world. In this scenario, the customer is the user of the app who is generating content in exchange for points they can use towards deals at restaurants.
B-2-B: Restaurant brands are charged a small monthly fee for access to our restaurant portal to manage their profile, giving them access to:
Services are delivered on a tiered basis with a free tier that allows the brand owner to update their profile and a paid tier that allows for added deal, Analytics, and contect moderation fucntionality.
Our competitive advantage over the direct competition (e.g. Foodspotting, Forkly, Chewsy) is two fold:
1) We enable our users to share their experience using video. This adds not only visual dimentionality, but also sound and a personal review which has proven to be a lot more interesting than a simple photo.
2) Our current mission is to build the app around food communities and create leaders within those communities that can use the app as a tool for food discovery. A good example of this are diet communities that have a hard time finding foods that meet their restrictive requirements (Think Gluten Free).
