Spotluck app offers free restaurant discounts with spin-to-win game

After successfully launching major metropolitan markets throughout New York, DC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, New Jersey and more, locals bring the nation’s #1 “dining” app on iTunes to Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Spotluck is a free mobile app that helps hungry diners decide where to eat. Like a game of restaurant roulette, users play by spinning a virtual wheel of local restaurants to unlock smart discounts. Spotluck’s proprietary software fluctuates discounts (15% to 35% off) based on day, time, and even weather.

“Williamsport has an amazing selection of local restaurants that offer quality food and are an essential part of a tight-knit community,” said Dillon Tedesco, one of Spotluck’s founding members and Chief Revenue Officer.  “By featuring some of the best locally-owned spots together on Spotluck, we help them stand out against the many corporate chains on the Golden Strip."

Spotluck discounts change based on factors that impact restaurant occupancy; think Priceline or Uber for restaurants. Rainy Mondays yield larger discounts while sunny Fridays remain low (but attractive), giving users that extra nudge to try a local spot. Best of all, users get a guaranteed 10% discount at all Spotluck restaurants regardless of their spin results.

It was a two-man effort to bring Spotluck to Williamsport. Cousins Dillon Tedesco and Josh Howe helped build Spotluck from the ground up. The two were on a personal mission to bring the nation’s top restaurant app home. “It’s been an extremely rewarding experience to bring Spotluck to our hometown and introduce something new and different to Central Pennsylvania,” said Josh Howe, Williamsport native and Director of Spotluck’s Pennsylvania operations. In only one week, nearly twenty local restaurants have already signed up including DiSalvo’s, Rivals, Bullfrog Brewery, The Sticky Elbow, and other local staples.
