Over the past year, the hospitality industry has been hit especially hard with capacity restrictions and mandatory shutdowns. However, TribLIVE’s latest website – DineLocal – is here to help. “DineLocal,” powered by MeSearch technology, is southwestern Pennsylvania’s complete guide to neighborhood food.
DineLocal allows diners to search for delicious dining options by name, location, or cuisine. And, restaurant owners can claim their listing on the site, free of charge. Once claimed, the restaurant can update its basic contact information and customize the listing to show current specials, photos, menus, and promotions.
“More than 70 percent of our region’s restaurants are locally owned, but 100 percent could use some help,” said Matt Miller, chief revenue officer of Trib Total Media. “We created Dine Local to support these restaurants and the many hospitality workers who find themselves in a dire situation.”
Owners of restaurants, bars, and cafes are expecting business activity to increase as vaccinations expand and case numbers decline. DineLocal is designed to help diners find and support these local businesses. And, businesses can keep diners informed with special offers, new menus, health and safety measures, capacity restrictions, changes to hours, and other updates on services such as dine-in, take-out, delivery, outdoor dining, etc.
