Texting For Your Next Meal


Did you ever wish making a reservation or figuring out when the local bar is open was as simple as texting your favorite restaurant or pub? Perhaps you’d rather text a food truck to see what’s on the menu than checking twitter. Have no fear, a Boston-based company is trying to make that a reality with their new app, Pingup.

The team behind Pingup wants the smartphone generation to “talk to businesses the way we are already talking to our friends and family,” that is, with fewer phone calls and a lot more texts. Imagine texting the local food truck from work to see how the line is. You may never have to walk an extra step again.
