London, UK (PRWEB UK) 10 July 2012
MenuSpring is a brand new website and mobile app that allows users to search for restaurants and food stalls according to the type of food or dish they are craving, and to share their dining experiences, pictures, reviews and recommendations.
“An individual dish can truly differentiate one restaurant from another and we capture that information to help diners find exactly what they fancy eating”, comments Ali Meruani, founder of MenuSpring. “We also recognise the power of personal recommendation and how popular it has become to share comments and thoughts about food and restaurants”.
MenuSpring provides diners with quick access to the details and menus of over 5,000 restaurants across London as well as many popular street and market food stalls. With thousands of searchable menu items and an A-Z of cuisine types, diners can find the food they want to eat. When using MenuSpring’s location aware mobile app, available for both iPhone and Android, diners will immediately be pointed to the nearest restaurants that serve the food they are craving.
Searches can also be made and filtered by location, vicinity to tube stations, price and ratings. Other features include a handy personal food journal where diners can store their food pictures and track the restaurants they have been to and those they want to visit, the facility to share restaurant recommendations with friends via Facebook, and a fun and newsy blog.
MenuSpring was founded by Ali Meruani, a London Business School (LBS) MBA graduate, and is part of the London Business School incubator. The incubator was started by LBS to help recent graduates with their startups by providing them with office space and mentorship. MenuSpring has Professor Rajesh Chandy (Professor of Marketing), Tony and Maureen Wheeler (Chair in Entrepreneurship) and Tim Brooks (Former Managing Director of Guardian News & Media, and Chairman of Newspaper Publishers Association) on its board of advisors.
