Press Release   •   Dec 30, 2013 15:01 EST

Long Beach, CA (January 1st , 2014)- The newly launched and ground breaking mobile app company SimpleDeal, (, announced today the official release dates for their SimpleDeal app. A mobile app that is poised to revolutionize local dining experiences throughout the US. The initial launch will take place solely in Long Beach California and then disseminate at a steady pace to other US cities.  When searching for a restaurant to dine at app users can simply point their phone at any restaurant of choice and simply tap to show that restaurants deals and offerings for that day. Whether it be a percentage discount off, a two for one special, or even something more unique like having an entrée named after you, SimpleDeal provides access to all deals and offers that are being made to restaurant goers at that exact moment, at that exact location. Not a week, or a month from now. The instantaneous deal method provides restaurants with the ability to customize unique experiences for customers in real time.

“Consumers nowadays don’t want to be limited by purchasing, printing out their voucher, or waiting until there is an opening. We are promoting the power of local communities and living in the now.” States SimpleDeal App Founder and CEO James McKinney. “ We can not wait to take this app live within Southern California and National shortly thereafter.”

If you can point your phone, you can find a restaurant deal right on the spot.  The SimpleDeal App is 100% free to users and will be available for iOS on January 10th 2014 and Android phones on January 17th. The app operates via your phones GPS and Accelerometer to pick up your exact location and orientation. Once you point your phone a photo of the restaurant that you are standing in front of will appear and consumers only need to simply tap a button in order to see that restaurant’s current deals and offerings. No cameras, no maps, just point for instant access.  If the photo appearing is not the location you desire then simply move left or right until your restaurant appears. If a restaurant is not a participating location SimpleDeal will show you current deals in your surrounding location. The app also enables users to have access to items such as the restaurants wait time, what time it closes, view menu items right from your phone, and bonuses where from time to time, with ongoing use your meal for the evening may even be on SimpleDeal .

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. If a restaurant would like to feature a product, such as a special monthly milkshake, they are able to do so with a self-customized message telling the patron to come in and try it.  It also eliminates the fear of affordability for customers when browsing on sites such as Yelp and looking at three to four dollar signs by telling you exactly how much it would cost for two people to eat there. It places the dining experience 100% in to the hand of the restaurant and enables them to showcase dishes that may make the restaurant famous or easily fill their location during known downtimes. Restaurants can become a SimpleDealer by registering at .

“I deeply believe in empowering local communities and small businesses. I think a few of our competitors limit restaurant owners in not only the messaging and what they are able to promote, but also handicap them by taking a large chunk of their sales. It is impossible to build a loyal return customer base that way.” Continues SimpleDeal App Founder and CEO James McKinney. “ The life force of a restaurant is the love the local community develops for it.  There is no better way to gain the attention of a new customer than offering a deal they cant refuse or giving them everything they may want to know about your restaurant while they are standing right outside of your establishment and updating often enough for them to return to their new found favorite place with those close to them.“
