LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Off The Menu, the app that curates secret menu items from our favorite eateries has relaunched with more cities, updated search capabilities and an in-app Uber & Lyft features to get foodies to their destinations in a click. On the heels of the relaunch, the Off the Menu team struck a production deal with Anonymous Content and a distribution contract with online powerhouse Fullscreen to release original content. Founder Lawrence Longo has partnered with Shay Mitchell, as she joins the OTM team as Creative Director helping launch the new digital content and creative activations.
"I have been exploring cities with Lawrence to find the tastiest secret menu items, way before Off The Menu had come to life. When OTM went from a dream to a reality, I would offer my advice on the look and feel of the app not only because Lawrence is a good friend, but because I am genuinely interested and invested in the way we use social media today," says Shay Mitchell. "I'm thrilled to come on board to help grow the awareness of this essential app for food and drink lovers and really let people in on what Lawrence and I have been doing for years!"
The first series from Off the Menu, Celeb Bites, features OTM founder Lawrence Longo and celeb-friends' (Shay Mitchell, Mikey Roe, Charlotte McKinney) quest for the ultimate secret menu items. Series premieres on Off the Menu's YouTube channel Thursday, September 22nd.
Created as a portal for the explorer and foodie alike, Off The Menu's new digital content will showcase food & drink secrets as well as adventures in celebrity dining from neighborhoods across North America. The new app has honed in on how to search for secret menu items and allows users to search at the neighborhood level, by city or type of cuisine. Users can also save and catalog their favorite off the menu items right inside the app.
Celeb Bites Season 1 will air new episodes every Thursday, kicking off with OTM partner and pretty little liar Shay Mitchell and her hunt for experimental, spicy (very spicy) dishes. The season features foodie obsessed celebrities as they join Lawrence Longo revealing their favorite secret-eats.
More series are coming down the pipeline, and the alliance with Anonymous and Fullscreen further acknowledges the popularity of food and drink content within the digital space and the booming growth in food focused mobile apps. "Trying to find the merger between what is popular and what is singular has always been a goal of our storytelling at Anonymous Content. Off the Menu and its digital content strategy are a perfect match for us," said Michael Sugar, Partner at Anonymous Content & Advisor of Off the Menu.
