Spotluck is a Bethesda based startup that connects local restaurants (“spots”) with the locavores in the DMV. Spotluck creates a collaborative marketing platform for local “spots” to communicate and connect with hungry diners.
Spotluck answers the proverbial “where to eat?” dining dilemma in 10 seconds by granting our users ONE SPIN PER DAY in each neighborhood to land on a randomly selected local spot. Users love us because we're FUN, and restaurants love us because we’re smart! Spotluck brings yield management to the restaurant industry through intelligent incentives that calculate the minimum incentive needed to bring diners into the restaurant (higher on rainy Tuesdays vs. a sunny Friday). Our proprietary software constantly fluctuates discounts based on day, time, weather and other data-related factors that affect consumer behavior. In addition to yield management, Spotluck provides GPS verified reviews, BIG DATA, and other merchant-centric value add offerings to our spots.
Spotluck is FREE and available on both iPhone and Android. In just over a year, we've partnered with more than 175 restaurants and have launched 15 neighborhoods (“Hubs”) in the DMV. Oh, and just last week, we became the #1 “dining” app on the iTunes App Store!
