The dining app Spotluck has added Blacksburg to its growing list of neighborhoods and cities along the East Coast. With the help of Downtown Blacksburg Inc., the mobile app launched Blacksburg this month with 10 local restaurants.
Laureen Blakemore, director of Downtown Blacksburg Inc., passed along details in a news release:
The Blacksburg “spots” join more than 500 existing Spotluck partners featured on the gamified incentive platform.
Virginia Tech joins Georgetown, James Madison University, University of Maryland, Drexel, UPENN, Hood College, George Mason University, and American University as college campuses that are located in a Spotluck Hub. Spotluck operates on a simple premise: local restaurants thrive when collaborating as a neighborhood.
Spotluck allows local restaurants to collaborate, join forces, and collectively market the neighborhood’s best "spots" to dine. The app uses “smart” discounts of 10 to 35 percent to attract customers during slower times. It employs dynamic pricing under the theory that prices on a rainy Tuesday shouldn’t be the same as prices on a beautiful Friday evening. Plus, Spotluck’s daily “spin” provides bonus savings and a fun twist for its users.
