2. Yummy Deals
The first app to list restaurant specials across South Africa that don’t have any red tape. This means you do not need to jump through hoops to go enjoy the special. The app shows restaurant specials by weekday. So if you are in the mood for a pizza special you open Wednesday and type “pizza” and you will see your closest pizza specials. You then just phone the restaurant and make a booking. No need to even mention the app. No coupons, vouchers or anything. The app is based on the blackboard special principle. Most restaurants have blackboard specials that do not make their way to internet. So the only way of knowing about them is to walk past the restaurant. Enter Yummy Deals. The team constantly updates specials and thus you as the app user can discover hidden gems and enjoy a ton of 50% off specials without needing any form of deal redemption.
