Health-focused foodies and restaurants can now unite faster and easier thanks to a new website and app called OrganicRestaurants.com.
The worldwide directory and review app and website specializes in organic cuisine, with each restaurant listing including reviews, ratings, an ‘organic level meter’, photos, menus, featured dishes and more.
Paul J Scott, the site’s Boston-based inventor, said the concept was inspired by his personal experience.
“I work a lot of hours and end up ordering in, or eating out at least four or five times a week. I started to look at my options and think about sourcing. The Whole Foods model is beautiful, giving customers choices and being transparent and proud to serve the best organic foods available.
However this model did not exist in a searchable format for restaurants. As people begin to think more about what they put into their bodies, I wanted to help them do it in a quick searchable format. I think I’ve done that.”
For users, features to the site include interactive map searches, user photo uploads, fully responsive mobile viewing, zip code search, saving to a favorites list, simple review functions, what’s nearby view, organic level meter rating and the ability to connect pre-existing social network accounts to listing profiles.
These updates serve to enhance the user experience and allow for more interaction between hungry customers and the restaurants eager to serve them. It is also great for restaurants seeking to grow their online presence with rich meaningful content.
The business model is charging restaurant owners who want to pay for premium placement to get an extra edge on their local competition.
