“SimpleDeal is made for the small guys. Our goal is to truly save the restaurant industry. The restaurant industry is the second largest industry within the US and 70% of it is made up of small business owners who only own one restaurant, which means it’s their livelihood.” States SimpleDeal App Founder and CEO James McKinney. “Restaurants cannot afford to throw their profits away after they are forced to discount them. How many times have you returned to a restaurant after presenting a daily deal? Our app promotes community and small business growth. With this Indiegogo campaign we are asking for a chance to serve an industry that has served us time and time again.”
The SimpleDeal App is 100% free to users. Participating restaurants do have a fee of $39.00 per month to list with the app, however can load in as many deals or offerings as they would like for their customers, and have the ability to change deals out daily. Unlike market competitors such as Groupon, SimpleDeal does not hit restaurant profit margins by taking a large chunk of sales or force restaurants to discount their food and services.
