WitL Drives Instant Traffic to Restaurant Customers

The pandemic left a devastating trail of destruction in many regards, but economically, restaurants were among the hardest hit. In an effort to help restaurants bounce back, tech company WitL will be offering Austin restaurants $75,000 worth of discounts to pass onto customers through its soon-to-launch app.

WitL will provide every restaurant with the ability to offer up to $500 worth of discounts to new and/or existing customers, guaranteeing a no-cost trial to the first 150 restaurants that join the app. WitL connects restaurants and customers through a custom discount marketplace. By using WitL, restaurants can drive instant traffic to prospective customers through custom promotions.

“Austin is one of the most unique cities when it comes to diverse cuisines and a variety of dining experiences. We saw firsthand the havoc that COVID-19 had on their restaurants, especially the small stand-alone ones. We anticipate Austin restaurants to emerge in the wake of the pandemic and we want to help get people into those businesses,” said Nick Schlueter, WitL director of marketing.
