MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, bogopogo launched its new FRAMPLE (Free + Sample) plan providing absolutely free mobile coupon access to all restaurants across the United States to promote their best restaurant deal. According to Pete Bosse, founder and CEO of bogopogo, "This changes everything. Now every restaurant in America can communicate their best deal, for 100% free everyday, directly to Americans wanting to eat out more often." According to National Restaurant Association research, 7 out of 10 Americans would dine out more if menu prices were lower during off-peak times. "Our new FRAMPLE plan empowers every restaurant nationwide with a mobile coupon tool designed to communicate their best deal to restaurant patrons for 100% free," notes Bosse. Bogopogo's mobile app, for restaurant patrons, is available in the Android and iOS app stores and is always free to download and free to use. Restaurants may feel bombarded every day with salespeople wanting to sell them something. Instead, Bosse was inspired by the words of noted restaurateur Danny Meyer, CEO and founder of Union Square Hospitality Group, when he said you get your greatest gratitude when you give to others. "Attention, calling all restaurants - bogopogo wants to be your promotional partner for life," exclaims Bosse! You can sign up now for the new FRAMPLE plan at www.bogopogo.com/merchant-register.
Here's how the new FRAMPLE plan works: it's simple, there are no contracts, no commitments, and no revenue sharing. It's 100% free for restaurants and other foodservice establishments. "Any restaurant can be up and running with a live mobile deal in 15 minutes or less! That includes account registration and viewing our 5 minute video tutorial," says Bosse. Each account may post one active promotional deal per location. Restaurants can change the deal as often as they like for any duration up to a maximum of 45 days, then the deal expires automatically. Deals may be cancelled, edited or replaced with another deal at anytime. Restaurants are limited to one active deal per location with the FRAMPLE plan. Bogopogo's goal is to build a foodie community comprised of restaurants wanting to promote their best deal, to fill excess capacity or attract new customers, and patrons wanting to eat out more often.
According to CEO Bosse, "Our new FRAMPLE plan is like fishing. With FRAMPLE, we give restaurants the equivalent of a fishing pole and they supply the bait, in the form of a deal, to attract new patrons. If the restaurant wants additional help using a depth finder, better bait or a fishing guide, then we have other paid plans to meet their complete range of promotional needs." Bogopogo's enhanced mobile coupon platform features include results analytics, proactive marketing and promotion assistance available for upgrade anytime with bogopogo paid plans. Bosse goes on to say, "The promotional element of the marketing mix traditionally includes advertising, public relations and discounting and it's the one element of the marketing mix that can help build a restaurant brand, attract new customers, encourage trial and showcase specialties." Bogopogo paid plan options begin at less than $1/day per location and go to about $3/day per location. Complete plan details are available at http://www.bogopogo.com/merchant-login.php.
Bogopogo launched in June, 2014 in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area with a vision of sharing useful information to help people make informed purchase decisions. The introduction of the new FRAMPLE (Free + Sample) plan, is bogopogo's first step toward nationwide expansion. When asked about the difference between bogopogo and group coupons and daily deals, Bosse said, "That's easy, put away your credit cards, you can't buy our deals – because they're free." Bosse also noted, "Our new FRAMPLE plan provides an everyday free alternative for restaurants, in addition to patrons, to communicate useful promotional information that empowers patrons to make informed purchase decisions."
