Tupalo.com launches social yellow pages community in the US

One of Europe’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."
