New App Released That Can Find Nearby Coffee

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 08, 2015) - Finding a good cup of coffee in the morning (or the afternoon, or any other time) just became a little bit easier.

Pricefox Inc. (www.gopricefox.com), a Vancouver based technology start-up, has released a new feature in their app that allows users in the Lower Mainland to see how far away they are from a cup of coffee and compare prices at nearby cafes.

In addition to Pricefox’s database of over 30,000,000 product listings from grocery, health, beauty and electronic retailers across Canada, the app now covers hundreds of cafes in the Lower Mainland and includes regular brew and gourmet coffee, such as Lattes, Cappuccinos, Americanos and other specialty coffees.

"Vancouver is a coffee town and we are a proud Vancouver startup," says Pricefox CEO Vedran Budimcic. "I think people will be really surprised by some of the price differences between cafes," adds Budimcic.

Currently, the app mostly includes larger chains such as Caffè Artigiano, Blenz, Starbucks and Tim Hortons but the company will add smaller cafes in the near future. Interested cafe owners in the Lower Mainland are invited to contact Pricefox (www.gopricefox.com) to be included in the app.

Pricefox is Canada’s first local shopping app and was recently coined "small business’s best friend" by the Vancouver Sun. The app allows shoppers to search for and compare nearby products.

Pricefox is available as a free download on the App Store and Google Play.
