San Francisco, CA (PRUnderground) February 1st, 2012
Christopher Ford, Co-Founder of Stitches ‘n Dishes, announced that the popular street food blog site, providing articles, interviews, reviews, high-quality food photography, and video became a Preferred Blog Partner to Food Network’s television show, Eat St.
Eat St. and Stitches ‘n Dishes will exchange content and collaborate in the promotion of the Eat St. mobile app for iPhone by Invoke Media, creators of HootSuite and Eat St. Digital, which enables people to locate, share and review food trucks and food stands anywhere in the country. Users can browse through information including the vendor’s hours, location, menu, specials, photos and Twitter feed. Users can also tap the Google Maps image on the vendor page to get directions to the food truck’s location. The partnership broadens the Stitches ‘n Dishes reach to cover the entire country.
“We’re really excited to announce that we’ll be working closely with the excellent food blog Stitches n’ Dishes to offer inspiring, entertaining and thought-provoking posts about the business of mobile catering and food truck operations,” said Lima Al-Azzeh, Eat St. Community Manager. “For our first cross-post, we’ll feature the wise words of Stitches ‘n Dishes sharing note-worthy tips on how to keep customers coming back for more.”
Produced by Paperny Entertainment, Eat St. entering its third season, characterizes the rapidly-growing street food culture in North America in a unique way. Hosted by Canadian comedian, James Cunningham, who is a self-proclaimed menace to the kitchen, the show gives viewers a genuine “man on the street” view of the street food, without the formal culinary approach of a chef host. In each episode, Cunningham visits several food stands, carts or trucks for a candid, and most-often humorous review of his experiences. Eat St. airs on Tuesdays at 5:00pm PT / 8:00pm ET on The Cooking Channel.
The Eat St. community team utilizes Social Media Marketing to engage with the viewing audience, strengthening viewer loyalty and the emotional appeal of the show through its Blog, and Twitter and Facebook pages. The team shares street food tips, and food preparation tricks from vendors, as well as behind the scenes looks at the TV show, and street food news from across the nation. Eat St. also offers contests and special promotions to its followers.
“We’re pleased to partner with Food Network’s, Eat St. The show’s concept and mission are perfect companions to Stitches ‘n Dishes, and what we’re about. The Eat St. app for iPhone compliments our community and fills a specific need for mobile convenience amongst our readers. Our readers will also appreciate the expanded viewpoint, as our coverage can span the country through the shared content with Eat St.”
The new relationship between the Eat St. blog and Stitches ‘n Dishes provides mutual benefits, including opportunities to expand coverage, introduction of mobile integration, and cross-promotion.
