We believe a busy block is good for everyone. Increasing traffic to South Jersey's restaurant scene will also help nearby retailers, parks, and other local offerings.

After a city-wide launch in Philadelphia this summer, Spotluck has expanded into surrounding suburban neighborhoods of New Jersey. The mobile app has teamed up with Visit South Jersey to introduce its marketing technology to local restaurants and residents. Washington Township and Cherry Hill mark Spotluck's first stops in South Jersey, with Haddon Township, Collingswood and Mt. Laurel launching in the near future.

“Restaurants form the epicenter of communities and neighborhoods. Spotluck allows local restaurants to join forces and market the neighborhood as a whole. We believe a busy block is good for everyone. Increasing traffic to South Jersey's restaurant scene will also help nearby retailers, parks, and other local offerings." said Cherian Thomas, Spotluck's CEO. Spotluck struck a similar partnership with Visit Philadelphia when launching the city, so working with South Jersey was a natural fit.

"As a community, we're excited to partner with Spotluck to bring innovative technologies to South Jersey. The app serves as a powerful tool to pull visitors to our neighborhoods and experience our incredible local dining scene," said Devon Perry, Executive Director of Visit South Jersey.

Spotluck's Washington Township restaurants include: Italian Affair, Little Beef's, Think Greek, Steve's Grilled Cheese, The Village Pub, Attilio's, Luna Rossa, Slice, Thai Burger Café and Treesy's Soul Food Café. Spotluck's Cherry Hill restaurants include: Kaminski's, Vitarelli's, Indian Villa, Amici Ristorante, Tiffin Indian Bistro, Zushi Dozo, Rockhill, Steak 38 Café, King of Pizza and Michaelangelo's.

Bob Ciconte, owner of The Village Pub, shared “as a company we have embraced the use of technology to gather feedback and communicate with our customers nearly in real time. Utilizing apps like Spotluck gives us the ability to entice and reward our customers as well as develop new customers that have not yet tried The Village Pub.”
