New app that lets you spin to choose restaurants debuting in Lynchburg


    LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - A new app, called Spotluck, is debuting in Lynchburg and developers hopes it will bring dynamic pricing to the restaurant industry with a "gamified spin."

    The app pioneers real-time discounts that fluctuate based on day, time, weather and other factors that impact restaurant occupancy.

    Their software yields higher discounts on rainy Mondays and lower discounts on sunny weekends.

    Spotluck Lynchburg Partner, Randy Sass, has spent most of his life involved with the local business scene. Now that downtown has seen a revitalization, Sass knew the timing was right for technology that highlights great local restaurants.

    “I grew up in the Lynchburg restaurant where my mom worked,” Sass said. “I spent my summers there helping her and I have a lot of great memories. I’m excited to promote eating locally and contribute to a community that means a lot to me.”

    Participating restaurants in the area are the following:

    • Hippo’s
    • Charley’s Restaurant
    • Kegney Brothers
