GoGrabLunch.com Becomes Official Lunch Networking Website
Local company provides Knoxville Chamber with valuable networking platform
The Knoxville Chamber has entered into an agreement with GoGrabLunch.com to become the official “Lunch Networking Website” for the Chamber and its members. Similar to online matchmaking, but focused on business development, GoGrabLunch.com helps pair professionals for one-on-one lunches at restaurants throughout the region.
The online resource allows users to create a profile, setting specific parameters for the types of professionals they want to meet and do business with. These parameters range from different industries to title. Once members create their profile and networking preferences, GoGrabLunch.com provides them a list of matching members who have scheduled lunches at specific restaurants. A member can choose a lunch from the list of pre-planned lunches or they can enter their own lunch schedule, pick the restaurant, and plan a lunch of their own.
Chamber Senior Vice President Mark Field is excited about the new partnership and the opportunities it provides members with regards to developing their networks. “While social networking has gained in popularity and is proving to be a valuable business development tool, we need to continue to emphasize the importance of building relationships face-to-face, and there is no better time to do that than over lunch” Field commented. “Our members are always looking for new ways to meet people and make connections that will lead to future business and GoGrabLunch.com provides us with a turnkey solution,” he continued.
It is free for any businessperson to set-up a profile on GoGrabLunch.com, but the partnership with the Chamber will provide a valuable promotional tool for the website. “Obviously, the more professionals we have engaged in GoGrabLunch.com, the more relevant and useful the site becomes,” commented Jonathan Patrick, creator of the website. “We’ve had a lot of success developing our database of users by utilizing social media and word-of-mouth to let people know about the website, but we are ready to take it to the next level and working with the Chamber makes a lot of sense for both of us”.
Thank you so much to the Knoxville Chamber staff, particularly Mark Fields and Lori Fuller, for the belief in our company and the opportunity to work with you.
