Connecting local restaurants to global diners
Press release 10th July 2012
Bangkok, 10 July 2012
Today Timeal.com announced that it acquired 100 percent of Restaurants of Bangkok Co., Ltd., the owners of Restaurantsofbangkok.com (R|O|B), one of Bangkok’s most popular restaurant websites.
Timeal.com is an initiative run by a group of entrepreneurs with the sole mission of connecting local restaurants to the global dining community by applying social media, innovative technology and a passion for dining and food.
Mr. Sylvain de Muynck, one of the group’s founders and newly appointed Managing Director of R|O|B said, “There is enormous synergy in what Timeal.com aims to achieve and what R|O|B is already doing. We are excited to work with the existing R|O|B team to draw on their experience and innovative marketing concepts to further develop and expand the already fast-growing community platform for restaurants and dining aficionados.”
In combination with Timeal.com’s technological expertise, R|O|B will be upgraded with the latest social media tools, location tracking software and additional features that will take advantage of the comprehensive database and encourage users to interact with R|O|B’s content and community.
Eating out is one of the top ranking activities of both local residents and tourists in Bangkok and most diners use the Internet to find, rate and share restaurant information. The new owners will make it easier for R|O|B’s users to navigate the site and review their favorite restaurants alongside adding more restaurant information and increasing the number of deals and promotions. The level of interaction with the content will also be boosted by further developing social media integration and allowing users to share all content.
Mobile device accessibility will be enhanced with the development of a restaurant directory app and Google Map based search engine that will assist diners on the go.
Advertisers and restaurant owners can take advantage of a well-organized and search engine optimized marketing platform with a large and focused community of diners and food enthusiast who are always on the look out for good deals and new experiences. The platform provides restaurants with access to a wide variety of marketing tools and solutions that help them increase visibility on the Internet and attract new customers to their venues.
Timeal.com’s acquisition of R|O|B represents the start of a new and enthralling phase in the development of Bangkok’s most comprehensive and fun English-language restaurant directory and promises to produce a major player in the restaurant marketing field for many years to come.
