London, UK (PRWEB UK) 14 April 2014
It is no secret that the restaurant industry is currently on a decline, with many restaurants forced to close their doors due to a lack of customers meaning lack of sales and profit growth.
From small bistros to large celebrity establishments such as highly reputable chef 'Jamie Oliver’s' Union Jack Restaurants, no restaurant owner is safe from the economic issues which the industry faces. Not so long ago, Jamie Oliver had to close three out of the four Union Jack Restaurants he owns, citing tough economic circumstances.
Many are trying to revive and save this struggling industry and restore it to its buoyant state, a major method which is being explored is mobile web apps.
The popularity of mobile apps in recent years has had a dramatic effect on the way people find out about new restaurants that they can go to dine.
New mobile app “FindMe4u” looks set to bridge the increasingly widening gap between restaurants and their current and potential customers.
FindMe4u Restaurants is a platform which allows restaurants to feed customers with information on their service instantaneously. The service allows them to build their brand awareness whilst conducting restaurant advertising and directly promoting their restaurant to their target audience.
FindMe4u allows restaurants to pull in customers that are located around them with the use of its geo-location technology.
There has been a significant jump in the number of consumers using the Internet and mobile apps to find local restaurants, and the regularity of their ‘searches’ has also increased and by building their online presence with FindMe4u, restaurants can tap in to this growing trend.
There has been a positive shift in consumer trust and appreciation of online reviews with The Local Consumer Review Survey (2012) showing that approximately 72% of consumers surveyed said that the trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from friends and family.
FindMe4u’s Rate Me and Share Me features allows users to rate a restaurant and share reviews with friends and family about their restaurants experiences and with this, the reputation of a restaurant can grow positively overnight, drawing in the crowds.
Restaurant owners can give their establishment the spotlight it deserves through FindMe4u.
