MenusGoMobile Gives Restaurants and Bars a New Way to Promote Themselves

Independent Restaurants and Bars Capitalize on Mobile Technology

HERMOSA BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - January 17, 2011) - Thanks to, beginning today, independently owned restaurants and bars will now have affordable access to iPhone application technology. For as little as $50 per month, restaurants and bars can receive their very own iPhone application that is available for their customers to download directly from the iTunes Store.

As analysts predict that Verizon will likely sell 9 to 12 million iPhones on their network this year, coupled with the millions of existing iPhone users on the AT&T network, a great opportunity presents itself for independently owned restaurants and bars to engage with this group like never before. MenusGoMobile, a Hermosa Beach, CA based marketing company, is set to provide these businesses with a way to do so.

The application, available on, allows for independently owned restaurants and bars to integrate their menu, featured items and specials, contact information, including a GPS locator, a tip calculator, photos and video, as well as a social networking portal that gives users of the application the capability to share featured items and the application itself through social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter. The application also lets businesses directly communicate with their customers via push notifications. Push notifications are similar to text messages, which can be sent by restaurants and bars to anyone who has downloaded the application. MenusGoMobile also allows their customers to send push notifications and change their application content in real-time through their Content Management System (CMS), which is available to customers after subscribing through

"This is really a new way to look at marketing," says co-owner Tom Dunbabin. "Previously it would have cost these businesses thousands of dollars to reach these smart phone users. Now, for less than a print advertisement, these businesses can keep in contact with their current and new customers wherever they are. In the past these customers would have had to remember to visit a restaurant or bar's website, Facebook, or Twitter, but having this technology available allows our clients to always be in the palm of their customer's hand. Especially in today's world, having this kind of access is a must-have." 

Restaurant and bar owners in the United States can purchase their own application from The company provides various subscription packages to suit any budget, and currently they are offering a free first month of service to all new clients.
