NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The newest tech company in New Orleans, LA, Get City Dealz, is assisting local merchants in getting the word out about their businesses and helping them reach new audiences through search engines and social media, including one of New Orleans’ best kept secrets, the Orleans Grapevine. By making it easy to market their menu items and specials, Get City Dealz is helping to increase foot traffic to the restaurant and raise awareness of the unique entrees, appetizers and desserts the Orleans Grapevine has.
“We’ve had a lot more interest in our menu over the past few weeks of utilizing Get City Dealz, especially with promoting our newest Caribbean Special which features Spiny Florida Lobster, Toasted Coconut Ice Cream and a Shrimp Remoulade served in a beautifully hand carved Conch Shell from Belize,” explained the Orleans Grapevine’s co-owner Earl Bernhardt. “We’re able to reach a lot more people, both New Orleans locals and tourists, utilizing the Get City Dealz platform in addition to our traditional means of advertising.”
The Caribbean Special at the Orleans Grapevine has become one of the best-selling specials at the Cajun Creole restaurant on Orleans Avenue in the French Quarter due in part to the ability of Get City Dealz to easily get the word out about the unique special. The use of pictures to promote the special on the Get City Dealz and the ease of sharing the special on sites like Facebook and Pinterest are helping to grow the Orleans Grapevine’s business.
“This special has huge appeal to people local to New Orleans as well as visitors even if you just read about it, but interest really spiked when the pictures showed what the food looked like and the beauty of the hand carved Belizean conch shell. People shared the special more and expressed desire to come in and try it. The Get City Dealz platform made it easy for the Orleans Grapevine to do that quickly and easily. Their Chef, Eddie Raye King, took the pictures with his camera and they put together the special in a matter of minutes,” explained Liana “Li” Evans, CTO of Get City Dealz.
Get City Dealz is now helping the Orleans Grapevine bring awareness to their large selection of wines from all over the world. The restaurant’s collection of wines is one of the largest in the New Orleans area and includes wines from New Zealand, Chile, France, Italy and many more countries. One of the more popular ways to sample what the Orleans Grapevine has is with their popular “Wine Flights”, which they have also promoted through Get City Dealz with a lot of success.
Pictures of the Spiny Florida Lobster with Deep Fried Mini Corn on the Cob, the Shrimp Remoulade in the hand carved Belizean conch shell, the Toasted Coconut Ice Cream and the Wine Flights are available at the Orleans Grapevine’s merchant profile on Get City Dealz.com.
