Letsgofordinner.com creates virtual coupons for dining out

Letsgofordinner.com, which presented at the 24th Angel Forum at the SFU Harbour Centre, aims to be the “Entertainment Book for the internet.” The site is a mobile push application, which works by letting restaurants release coupons based on how busy or empty they are at a given moment. Members of letsgofordinner.com buy a membership card for $25 (half of which goes to charity) and then are notified of specials at restaurants that are part of the service. The advantage for restaurants is that they can fill seats (generally the biggest source of revenue loss in the business) while customers are able to save money on a meal without having to bring an unweidly coupon book.

Currently the site is set up to serve both Calgary and Vancouver. Letsgofordinner.com is asscoaited with local start-up incubator Bootup Labs.
