Foodie Frenzy: LivingSocial Gourmet Now Live in Seven Markets
Boston, Atlanta Join D.C., San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, and Portland, Ore.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LivingSocial today announced the continued expansion of Gourmet, its high-end restaurant product to seven cities with the launch of Boston and Atlanta, which join recent launches in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia and Portland, Ore., with more to come in 2012.
"In just two months we've introduced our Gourmet product in seven markets and the response from both our members and our restaurateur partners has been fantastic," said Alli Phillips , GM of Restaurants at LivingSocial. "Our Gourmet offers connect restaurateurs with the clientele they desire - people who appreciate food and dine out frequently, while at the same time giving our members access to one-of-a-kind culinary experiences that aren't available anywhere else."
An average Gourmet offer costs upward of 100 dollars per person and includes some of the finest foods, wines and spirits LivingSocial's restaurateur partners have to offer. To date, Gourmet offers have ranged from a meatball making class with Joey Campanaro at Little Owl in New York, to an eight-course prix-fixe tasting menu at two-Michelin starred Saison in San Francisco, to exclusive tickets to ChurchKey's New Year's Eve bash in Washington, D.C. Each offer is available for two weeks or until it sells out, which happens often. In fact, LivingSocial sold out 4 of 5 Gourmet offers featured in the past two weeks.
"LivingSocial's Gourmet product is unlike anything else in the market," said Peter Smith , Owner & Chef, PS 7's Restaurant in Washington, D.C. "By working with LivingSocial we were able to create a one-of-a-kind experience for potential customers and have seen great results."
LivingSocial extends Gourmet invitations to its members that show an interest in food and experiencing new things through past purchases, however food connoisseurs that have not received an invitation and are interested in joining can also log on to livingsocial.com/gourmet and submit a request for admittance.
