If one person can feed a child with TangoTab, their network can feed a village. By solving a real business problem at restaurants, we have the opportunity to end hunger in America.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 15, 2012
Recently inaugurated TangoTab, which donates a meal to those in need every time a consumer dines at a participating restaurant, has had remarkable success in partnering with restaurants. Hundreds of eateries have signed on and, through TangoTab, now offer incentives to bring in customers during slow dining times. The startup offers a novel and effective way to both fill empty tables and fight hunger in America.
TangoTab directs diners in real time to restaurants with empty tables. Restaurants pay a small flat fee when they are successful, as opposed to the significant fees charged by competing deal sites that often cripple restaurants profitability. To top it off, the socially conscious Internet company gives 20% of its gross revenue to local hunger-relief charities. Consumers save money, restaurants get clients when they need them most, and a growing societal issue is solved.
"At TangoTab, we believe that the power of social media can dramatically magnify each person's impact", says Andre Angel, TangoTab's founder. "If one person can feed a child with TangoTab, their network can feed a village. By solving a real business problem at restaurants, we have the opportunity to end hunger in America."
Dallas-based CRO, with over 140 locations throughout the United States, and brands such as Cantina Laredo, Three Forks, and El Chico, joined forces with TangoTab from its inception. TangoTab customers have flocked to the eatery, drawn by the offers and by the appeal of helping those in need. CRO is one of over 600 restaurants working with TangoTab in Dallas to fight hunger.
Deep Fork Grill & Seafood, a contemporary wood grill and fish house, is one of TangoTab’s most popular restaurants in Oklahoma City. When diners eat out at Deep Fork Grill & Seafood, TangoTab donates locally to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Owner Wade Starr loves the TangoTab model. “We’re giving the clientele something they want, they’re giving us more business, and we’re working together to get food to people who really need it. It’s a win-win-win.”
New York City has its share of TangoTab restaurants, too. For highly rated Arctica Bar & Grill, which serves up a continent-hopping menu in an Arctic exploration themed space, TangoTab offers a chance to increase their customer base while helping to give back to the community. Owner Ronan Conlon is bullish on the venture: “We thought it was an easy fix. We can help hungry people, during off-peak hours. That’s something the staff can feel good about, and something we as owners can feel good about.”
In partnership with restaurants like Cantina Laredo, Deep Fork Grill, and Artica Bar & Grill, TangoTab has donated over 90,000 meals to hungry men, women and children nationwide.
TangoTab is a social startup that partners with local eateries. TangoTab donates meals to feed the hungry every time diners use it to save money at a participating restaurant. For each redeemed deal, TangoTab donates meals through local food banks to feed those in need. Customers help fight hunger simply by eating out. When a TangoTab customer eats, so does a person in need.
Hunger is a growing problem in the United States. According to Feeding America, 1 in 6 Americans will go to bed hungry tonight, and 1 in 4 children wakes up not knowing where their next meal will come from. Working with TangoTab, restaurant and consumers are fighting to alleviate the problem.
