University of Akron student entrepreneurs create HungerPerks app

HungerPerks is the first commercialized app created exclusively by University of Akron students. The app launched two months ago and is already gaining momentum in the entrepreneurial world.

For consumers who download the free app, HungerPerks offers a free food item in exchange for every short survey (about 5 questions long).

For restaurants, HungerPerks increases customer traffic and offers the data from these surveys. The restaurant community in Akron can use a boost, and HungerPerks is setting out to revitalize that restaurant community in the Akron area by driving traffic during lean times.

From 6- 8 p.m. on October 12 HungerPerks will partner with Chill Ice Cream & Blu to host an event called "Chill @ Blu.” Chill will be giving away free ice cream and Blu will be giving away free appetizers to the first 100 customers to show up to Blu Jazz+ and Chill with the HungerPerks App on their smartphone (while supplies last). All Chill @ Blu attendees will also receive free tickets to the Theron Brown show at Blu Jazz+.

Download the app, get free food, and be part of revitalizing downtown Akron!

The HungerPerks app is available on either Android or iOS. For more information about HungerPerks, visit www.hungerperks.com.
