The geo-location marketing company LiveDeal Inc. announced that it has launched livedeal.com in San Francisco. The platform launched in San Diego and Los Angeles in Q4 2013.
According to a news release, participating restaurants gain the ability to curate and control their own customized offers to customers via livedeal.com's real-time "deal engine." Individual customers transact directly with the restaurant, thereby eliminating LiveDeal as an intermediary in the sale, the release said.
"Capturing the San Francisco market is a major milestone for LiveDeal as it validates our expansion model throughout California. With the highest number of restaurants per capita in the U.S., San Francisco represents a major market share win for LiveDeal," said Jon Isaac, president and CEO of LiveDeal. "We are very pleased with the market's response to date as evidenced by strong restaurant and consumer adoption rates, deal flow and overwhelmingly positive feedback."
