The Easy Way to Treat Your Friends
Durham, NC (PRWEB) May 27, 2012
THE Blvd at the Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, has partnered with ZipTreatTM, a social and mobile ecommerce platform that allows friends to treat others to drinks, meals, and desserts despite differences in geographical locations.
“We are very excited to offer our guests this unique and cutting edge way for friends to celebrate” said Anthony Frunzi, Assistant Director of Food and Beverage at the Beverly Wilshire. “We have been looking for innovative ways to engage social media with our brand, and we believe that ZipTreat’s platform provides the ideal way to build a successful social and mobile offering.”
ZipTreat is a phenomenal new application that incorporates social media into everyday life. ZipTreat allows you to treat a friend in another city in celebration of any special event, as if you were there in person.
James McPherson, co-founder and CEO said, “It brings us great pleasure to partner with the Beverly Wilshire. Not only are they an iconic brand, but they have been very open to using innovative technology to provide the ‘next best’ experience for their guests. Our platform is uniquely suitable to creating the kind of ‘Social Media Experiences’ that can be a key differentiator in allowing local hospitality to be sociable and generous with friends.”
