LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2014) - FoodMarketplace.com is one of the world's most innovative online platforms, enabling independent food retailers to connect directly with consumers, while leveling the playing field with the supermarket giants. Local food retailers can now forge a deeper connection with their customers using hand-tailored profiles that circulate information about fresh items, daily deals, business news and more. FoodMarketplace has announced they will be giving one contestant $1,000,000.00 cash in prize money during their "Fan Frenzy" social media competition!

"We want to get the word out about our great service and let consumers know how serious we are about our commitment to EVERY independent food retailer -- ESPECIALLY the mom and pop stores," said FoodMarketplace's CEO and Founder, Franco Lagudi. "The little guys have so much competition and no means of mass-marketing against big supermarket chains. Buying local is what food is all about -- we want people to get back in touch with their community." 

FoodMarketplace's $1,000,000.00 "Fan Frenzy" is open to all members of the general public from now until October 31, 2015.

The person whose picture has the most fans at the end of the competition wins the $1,000,000.00 cash, changing their life forever!

"Marketplaces have played a huge role in human communities since time began," Franco Lagudi quipped. "We're simply using technology to update the model."
