localLocal Thanks, an operating company of Loyalty SuperStore announced a marketing partnership with Today’s Restaurant News. TRN is the go to source for the Florida and Georgia restaurant and food service industry. Local Thanks is building a platform of marketing services for restaurants in those two states specifically tailored for TRN. 

TRN will introduce this new platform in September at both the Georgia and Florida restaurant shows. Howard Appell, the CEO and Founder of Todays Restaurant News stated, “We have attended these shows for over 20 years and have a tremendous following for our papers and at our booths. Our readers and business associates come to us for the latest industry news and innovations. Our TRN Local Thanks marketing program is going to allow restaurants to increase their business and database of customers immediately, for about the cost of a cup of coffee a day. It is about time that restaurants do more with coupons than only promote a single visit and our Local Thanks platform is all about frequency.” 

Martin Berns, Chief Executive Officer Loyalty Superstore and Local Thanks said, “The platform we built for TRN has been specifically designed for the restaurant industry. It is an outreach program from the restaurant to existing and new customers, virtually grabbing them by the collar and bring them into the restaurant. The market platform includes a private branded mobile app, coupon website, customer incentives, social media, email, text and push messaging. It includes a cash back internet mall that is funded by over 1200 national merchants that their customers shop at every day. It even includes an interactive scratch off program and virtual punch card that promotes repeat visits.” 

Mr. Appell added, “Restaurants in this program can enjoy double digit lift and a growing list of happy and loyal customers. We are excited to bring it to our Florida and Georgia restaurants.”
