GiftYa's Momentum Continues To Grow With More Than 5,000 Prime Locations

Thursday, September 19, 2019 — 15:08:19 (EDT)


More than 5,000 restaurant locations across the United States have officially partnered with GiftYa, the newest gifting website and app that enables people to text customized and meaningful gifts within seconds for any national or local brand.

“GiftYa changes the gifting space in a very good way. As a brand, we don’t have to do anything... it just works,” says Katie Knight, CMO of Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. “It makes it easy for people to give in the moment.”

With GiftYa, the user can quickly and easily text a gift to a contact in their phone, choosing from popular restaurants, nationally-known retailers or local spas. The user can even personalize the GiftYa with a photo or video. Text delivery is immediate or can be scheduled for a later date. The recipient then links their GiftYa to the Visa® or Mastercard® in their wallet, alleviating any concern of the gift being lost or stolen. Next time the recipient shops at the merchant, GiftYa identifies the purchase and credits their bank card.

“It’s been humbling to see how much our vision/mission resonates with local and national brands alike,” says Mitch Young, Head of Sales and Partnerships at GiftYa. “We’re adding thousands of locations a month at this point – brands that have officially embraced and endorsed the GiftYa movement – so we’re building out a team here in Pittsburgh to help spread the word even faster.”

Restaurants can claim their business for free at www.giftya.com/partner/merchants .
