To Our Members:
It is with regret I am writing to inform you that as of August 1st, 2012 GoGrabLunch.com will be ceasing operations. While the site itself will no longer function, we are planning to leave the Facebook page (facebook.com/gograblunch) open as an alternative. Members can continue to connect with one another and even plan lunches through the group page by posting dates, times, locations, and the type of professionals they are looking to meet.
As often happens in a startup, our founding team is at a stage where other opportunities are calling that will hinder our ability to properly serve the site, and therefore our members.
The past year and a half has been a mixture of excitement and challenge. We have been privileged to be able to serve members in over 45 countries and have had the honor of partnering with some wonderful business partners.
I am most proud of the relationships that we have helped create for our members and the increased awareness of the value business networking can bring to your business.
More than a few members have taken the time to personally thank me for the positive impact our site had on their business. In the end, that was our goal.
I want to thank my founding partners for joining me in this adventure. Lastly, I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support and I hope that we can connect again someday.

This week the GoGrabLunch.com team rolled out our latest update to the site. If you have not noticed yet, once signed in, the member dashboard has changed.
The idea behind the dashboard change was to bring all of your membership information to one page. Now you can see all of the following in one spot:
- Your scheduled lunches
- Members that match your preferences, but don’t have any open lunches
- Spotlighted members
- The # of open lunches in your area
- The # of profiles that match your preferences
- Your lunch history
- Your NetQuotient
Many thanks to our CTO, Frank Podlaha, that has spent his time bringing this change to life in anticipation of an even bigger, better feature update!

One of the ways we are expanding into different parts of the world is through other strategic partnerships, such as relationships with Chambers of Commerce. In fact, we are currently in negotiations to form alliances with Chambers across the U.S.
As part of our growth, GoGrabLunch.com, has developed an affiliate marketing program where we share revenue with any member that is able to help us develop additional strategic partnerships. Whether that be your local Chamber of Commerce or any other associations that could benefit from our software.
We have also made the decision to open up advertising opportunities, that are geographically based. If you have any interest in advertising on our site to the local or national membership please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
