In The Media: The Current Newspapers Get The Dish On Spotluck
You could call the media’s appetite for Spotluck insatiable. The Current Newspapers, which means Northwest D.C., DuPont Circle, Foggy Bottom and Georgetown all dish on how Spotluck, the #1 dining app is revolutionizing the way people eat out. Because when it comes to dining locally in the DMV, Spotluck is always on the menu.
With Spotluck, supporting local restaurants is the only choice you have to make. Spotluck brings together more than 315 of the best certified local restaurants in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. The restaurants are organized on the app by neighborhood, and once you select a neighborhood, the app takes a spin and picks a restaurant for you.
Users get one spin per day, and as a bonus for supporting local restaurants, the restaurant offers preferred pricing. The price ranges depending on the day of the week, time of day and weather. Cherian Thomas, the co-founder of Spotluck says, “I always felt that prices in the restaurant on a Tuesday at 2 p.m. when it’s raining shouldn’t be the same as the prices of Friday night at 6 p.m. when it’s beautiful out.”
However, Thomas believes the biggest key to Spotluck’s success is how it helps people find local restaurants. “I’d argue that if you polled the next 300 people you saw, ‘Would you rather go to Olive Garden or a local Italian restaurant?,’ the chances are they’d prefer local,” Thomas says.
Being rewarded to avoid making a difficult decision seems too good to be true, but that’s exactly how Spotluck works. You can read the full Current Newspapers article here. Spotluck is available for free download from the App Store and Google Play store.
