NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ground breaking mobile app, SimpleDeal, (www.SimpleDealApp.com), announced today a strategic partnership with award winning food service equipment company Chefs' Toys. Lauded as one of the largest restaurant equipment and commercial kitchen supply dealers in the U.S. based in Southern California, the partnership came as a natural fit with the mobile app's core end user being restaurants. The one-of-a-kind opportunity will provide immediate reach for the SimpleDeal Mobile App to thousands of restaurants working with Chefs' Toys. Current customers of the food service equipment company will have the immediate opportunity to test drive the SimpleDeal Mobile App via their gold level platform, free of charge, for a 90 day period. Gold level access is valued at $119 and provides restaurants with the ability to:
- Schedule deals to help drive business when it matters most
- Send deal messages directly to fans and patrons who haven't been back to their restaurant for some period of time
- Access reporting to learn what the thousands of people right outside their door really want when making a dining decision.
"Foodservice operators have a myriad of operational challenges. Marketing is certainly one of them. They are always looking for ways to fill their seats cost-effectively," says Jim Wendt, Director of Marketing at Chefs' Toys. "The 1-to-1 interaction that SimpleDeal Mobile App offers has the potential to be a valuable business development tool for restaurants. It offers a positive way of interacting with customers, which could be a nice alternative to some of the online review sites out there where it can be exceptionally difficult to manage and control your restaurants messaging."
The partnership will begin on February 21st, 2017 and at that time, Chefs' Toys customers will be able to sign up for the SimpleDeal Mobile App platform with an exclusive invite code they will receive by email or can access by visiting www.ChefsToys.com/SimpleDeal
So how does SimpleDeal fit into the restaurant industry? SimpleDeal is a mobile app that is poised to transform the way that people discover local restaurants via their mobile phones. When searching for a restaurant to dine at, app users can simply point their phone at any restaurant of choice and simply tap a button to show that restaurant's deals and offerings at that very moment. If the users select a restaurant as their "fave" then restaurants can send them unique deals to lure them back for a visit. It is a free to use, one of a kind, on-the-go experience that easily converts everyday foot traffic for restaurant owners into immediate consumers without taking any share of their profits. Whether the restaurants deals include a percentage discount off, a two for one special, or even something more unique like having an entrée named after you, SimpleDeal provides access to all deals and offers that are being made to restaurant goers at that exact moment, at that exact location. The mobile app is currently available for both iOS and Android platforms.
"Chefs' Toys has been a valued service provider to the foodservice industry for over 28 years," states James McKinney, Founder of SimpleDeal. "At the core of SimpleDeal we are about helping restaurants strengthen their 1-to-1 relationships with a direct to customer managed platform. It only made sense for us to partner with Chefs' Toys. As veterans within the restaurant and food service industry, they fully understand the importance of providing restaurants within their local communities the tools needed to be successful. Just as the right foodservice supplies are necessary for day-to-day success, strong and effective marketing platforms such as SimpleDeal strengthen long-term profits. For that reason, being seen as a value-added partner and ally to industry icon Chefs' Toys enables us to really be seen and validates our position within the restaurant space."
