  • Remember when we said that 2011 is going to be a great year? Well, nothing like kicking it off with our big announcement of $3 million in Series A funding led by BlueRun Ventures, an early investor in PayPal. Needless to say we're thrilled and excited. Many thanks to the lovely folks at AllThingsD, CNET News, Mashable, ReadWriteWeb, TechCrunch, VentureBeat, SFGate, and Fast Company for writing about us. Look, we're famous!

      Good work y'all! Best wishes for your continued success - you've got a winner on your hands here and those investors are lucky to partner with you.
  • Earlier this week, we had the brilliant idea to poll you guys about the things you eat (or chug) first thing in the morning. We can all use a bit of breakfast inspiration, so here's a sampling of the replies we got. Let us know what your morning food ritual is in the comments! AC

    P.S. Click on the tweets. They'll open to that Foodspotter's Twitter profile. Consider this our version of Follow Friday. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

      it's not breakfast if i don't sit down with my favourite cup filled with coffee, some bread with hooney or plum jam
    • over 7 years ago.
      Sleep is my morning ritual. Food unfortunately takes second place. So my first meal is either Breakfast or Brunch but includes a glass of milk and bread for sure.

      Cool. I'm in there!

    Teddy's sister just told us that we're an App Store staff favorite! (She doesn't even have an iPhone...) The Foodspotting team is doing our bicoastal dance in our respective cities. If you don't have our app, here's your chance. Join our party and download our ace iPhone app or sign up for our Android beta!

  • Foodspotting turns one on January 15th, so we are hereby dubbing that day World Foodspotting Day! To celebrate, we're working with our friends at Meetup.com to encourage everyone to organize meetups or, really, eatups. We'd love to have Foodspotters around the world gather together to do what we do best: Eat and spot with friends :)

    Looking back on the past year, we achieved quite a bit:
    - Launched the website
    - Kicked off the iPhone app and Android app
    - More than tripled the size of our team (from 2 to 7)
    - Grew from 500 spotters to more than 500,000 iPhone app downloads
    - Worked with world-renowned partners including Travel Channel and Zagat
    - Received many accolades like Apple's iTunes App Store Best of 2010 in food and travel, as well as listed in TIME Magazine's 50 Best Websites of 2010

    So join us in raising a camera, a fork and a glass in honour of a fantastic year by attending or organizing an eatup. It's simple: If your city doesn't already have an eatup, just pick your favourite restaurant that's good for groups and add your eatup to the Meetup.com page. Email me if you're leading an eatup so I can send you some schwag to give out.

    And if you're in the Bay Area, the Foodspotting team is hosting a party that night of January 15th, so save the date and stay tuned for more details! FT

    Love Foodspotting? Put your town on the map by hosting an eatup!

  • Happy New Year! Since Foodspotting is all about finding good food for all cravings and occasions, we got to thinking about lucky foods that people eat to ensure 365 great days. Some people eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day to bring prosperity, for example. And according to Epicurious.com, many cultures will eat pork because pigs move forward and therefore symbolize progress. Other lucky foods to eat today are cakes, cooked greens, and fish. Which "lucky foods" do you eat on New Year's Day?

      Really? I love corn chowder! Is it considered good luck to eat corn chowder on January 1st or you just like it, like I do? :)
    • over 7 years ago.
      Anything home cooked!
    • over 7 years ago.
      I always eat Black Eyed Peas (even got mine in this year), I think it is a Southern thing. The funny thing is that I absolutely hate them, so this year I dressed them up with some red chili.
    • over 7 years ago.
      @San Antonio Joe, I admire your commitment to ensuring good luck despite your aversion to black eyed peas! It's gonna be a great year. Yay!
  • One of my favorite Foodspotting stories is how our CEO Alexa first "proposed" to Ted and asked him to be her co-founder. To illustrate how it all went down, Alexa sketched the dinner "date" that took place. Sure, we know by now how the evening went, but it's a refreshing reminder that, once upon a time, Foodspotting also began over food. Pizza, to be exact!

    With your help and mouthwatering sightings, Foodspotting grew from two to seven team members and made great strides as a new startup in 2010. Tomorrow is a new year and I'm happy to report we're entering 2011 humbled and hungry for more. Cheers to you guys and happy new year! May you always eat well, drink your fill, and never be without a camera or phone to foodspot it all.

      Thanks for accepting her most decent proposal, Ted! I love what you guys have built. I never knew how much fun it could be taking pictures of food (and checking out other's foodie photos)!
    • over 6 years ago.
      I love this. I love that moment when like-minds find the 'click'.
  • There's only word to describe how we feel about our first ever Heifer International Holiday Spotathon and your reaction to it all: WOW!

    When we announced our giving campaign, we started with three guides. To our surprise, they were completed in 24 hours. To extend the campaign, we added three more - trickier - challenges. However, even those couldn't stop you guys. The only item that was extra hard to find was Evansdale cheese, which we began thinking was out of season or, as one Foodspotter put it, "a myth." That is, until Madam Charcuterie ordered Evandsale from New Zealand especially for our campaign. While the cheese didn't arrive by Christmas day, our Spotathon deadline, we are still going through with our sheep gift!

    To add to our joy, we asked around for sponsors to match our gifts. The wonderful folks at Eating Madison A to Z answered our call by donating a milk cow.

    We and our friends at Heifer could not have been happier with our first holiday campaign. To hear their side of the story, take a look at Heifer's blog post.

    We said it once, but we'll say it again - Thank you so much to everyone who participated and who helped us achieve something amazing!

  • We had a fantastic year and none of it could have happened without you guys. So, here is our way of saying thanks for all you've done to help make Foodspotting a success! We're grateful for all the foods, feedback and ideas you've shared - and so glad we can provide a venue for you all to come together around delicious meals.

    Three cheers for a spectacular 2010, but we can't wait for what's in store for 2011. It's gonna be unbelievable, we just know it! Looking forward to being a part of your meals next year and for many years to come.

    Lots of love and snaps,
    Fiona & the team
