GrabMyTable Lets Mom And Pop Restaurants Easily Serve Up Websites




As more consumers turn to the sites like Yelp and Citysearch to find restaurants, it's important for establishments of all sizes to have a website. While larger restaurants may have more resources to create a sleek site, the mom and pop restaurants need an easy way to create a presence online. GrabMyTable is hoping to be a resource for restaurants to create websites easily as well as a restaurant discovery platform for consumers. We have free lifetime subscriptions for the first five TechCrunch readers and restaurateurs who sign up for GrabyMyTable here.

GrabMyTable was designed with the small restaurant owner in mind who doesn't have the time or money to put into developing an established site but still wants to maintain an informative website. The platform lets administrators with no HTML knowledge create a site with contact details, photos and videos, menus, specials, and even lets users add a customer review system that can be controlled by the site's administrator. The service costs $60 per month per site. The startup is also including a consumer-facing directory of all sites created with its technology broken down by city/regional area.

Of course, for the directory to be useful for consumers, GrabMyTable’s technology needs to be widely adopted by restaurants all over the world. In this space, the site will have trouble competing with Yelp, Citysearch and others which already have established marketshare in the listings and review areas. Plus, OpenTable is the go-to resource for bookings while Menupages.com lets users access menu for most restaurants in their coverage areas. Letseat.at also offers an easy portal for restaurants to create websites, but its offering is free.


While GrabMyTable faces stiff competition from a variety of sources, the site has experience on its side. The startup’s parent, iFoods Limited owns and operates several other food-focused websites including Twecipe.com, Lookandtaste.com. Vidvend, and foodandfizz.com.

Over A Year After Android Launch, ShopSavvy Finally Comes To The iPhone

ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications. It launched in October of last year after winning one of the initial Android Developer Challenge top prizes (when it was still known as GoCart). But despite the success it has seen on Android, one question remained: When would it be available for the iPhone. Today, it finally is. Developed by the guys at Big In Japan , ShopSavvy is an app that allows you to use your device as a portable barcode scanner. You point your phone's camera at any barcode and it will read it, do a product look up, and give you information about the product, as well as where you can find it online or at nearby stores and for how much. Obviously, something like this is a window shopper's dream. ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications.

Lindsay Lohan Breakup Confirmed by Lohan, Locksmith, Police [Gossip Roundup]

Farewell, last season's Suri Cruise fashions. Goodbye, Amy Winehouse's bathing suit. Adieu, humanoid version of Lauren Conrad. And so long, LiLo and SamRon's fairytale romance. Lindsay Lohan confirmed her split with Samantha Ronson and insisted the decision was part of a very healthy and mature effort to " focus on myself ." Upon hearing this, Ronson changed her locks and discussed a restraining order with police, so confident was she in Lohan's ability to turn productively inward. Lohan promptly had a run-in with the police . Who would have imagined such a messy breakup for this model relationship? Courtney Love's lawyer, on her client's drug-fueled plunge into broke-ness: ""Courtney noticed the money was gone when there wasn't any left." Deadpan gallows humor: the only possible response to having Courtney Love as a client. (Besides asking for a hefty retainer.) [ P6 ] Before Lauren Conrad's contract expired in March, MTV
