One of Europeâ€™s favorite social yellow pages communities goes west, launching their US local search in partnership with CityGrid Media.
Online PR News – 15-September-2010 – – In a reversal of the usual practice of startups expanding from the US into Europe, Tupalo.com (http://tupalo.com/) has crossed the Atlantic in the other direction. Having recently teamed up with CityGrid Media (http://www.citygridmedia.com), a new local media company connecting the millions of businesses and customers on the local web, Tupalo already has over 1 million business listings across the USA, and is adding tens of thousands more on a daily basis.
Discovering, sharing and reviewing local businesses - whether restaurants in Houston (http://tupalo.com/en/houston-texas/c/restaurant), bars in NYC (http://tupalo.com/en/new-york-city/c/nightlife), bakeries in Chicago (http://tupalo.com/en/chicago-illinois/c/bakery) or antique shops in LA (http://tupalo.com/en/los-angeles-california/c/antiques) - has never been easier. Tupalo.com offers the ultimate in US city guides built by people in the know and on the go.
Launching in the US is not only a logical step for Tupalo as it continues to grow beyond its European heartlands but also a kind of homecoming for the company, one of whose co-founders, CEO Michael Borras, is an American currently living in Vienna, Austria.
Speaking from the Directional Media Strategies 2010 conference in Dallas, Borras said, "The US is a key market for local search, so we are partnering with flagship companies such as CityGrid Media that share our core values and vision. Tupalo is committed to an organic, all-inclusive approach, and we look forward to forging positive relationships with users, consumers, businesses and other partners throughout the USA."
