Both founders of LunchBokz™ had families that, at some point, made an effort to run a small-business family-owned restaurant. They believed in family recipes, the best ingredients and very reasonable prices. Unfortunately, neither of their families met with much success in the restaurant business, but this is not an uncommon story.
Small-business restaurant owners are special people. They believe that by feeding others, prosperity will follow. It can be very disheartening when that simple dream can not be fulfilled. What the founders learned was that the best intentions simply do not make up for strategic marketing.
In today’s culture it is difficult to increase business to smaller businesses for several reasons, but what’s probably the hardest to get over is the simple fact that people are much busier than they have ever been, and they don’t have the time to seek out the small guy to try something new. So, we as a culture fall back on reliable “big names” that are universal to our needs.
We’re often less than impressed by what “big names” have to offer, but they usually fulfill two important factors when making decisions about what to eat, those two factors are time and money. Time: they’re usually within five miles of any location, and Money: we usually know their menu and how much we’re going to spend.
LunchBokz has taken on the charge of familiarizing you with some of your local small-business restaurants. How? By getting them to offer you their BEST possible deals, then have them available to you to search at a glance in the LunchBokz mobile app. We don’t ask anything from you, but to give them a try.
Hopefully, little things like frequenting these establishments can help to boost local traffic, not only to the restaurants, but also other small-businesses nearby. Instead of setting out to attempt a major change in order to make a huge difference we believe that a lot of little changes can eventually have the same impact.
At LunchBokz, we’re really simple people, so we wanted a product that was just as simple for everybody involved. Anyone that joins LunchBokz receives exclusive discounts on food at local small-business restaurants without having to pre-purchase any complicated vouchers or order larger quantities in order to receive a discount.
We’re really proud of the excitement that surrounds our efforts. The restaurants that we work with are eager to offer deals for LunchBokz subscribers and usually have the most amazing food! What’s in it for us? LunchBokz, as a company, is dedicated to the pursuit of local economic growth. But, personally, it gives the founders a sense of pride to know that the same dreams of their fathers and mothers are being fulfilled for other families because of their involvement.
We hope you join the LunchBokz Revolution™! Changing the way people do lunch!
