A few years ago some coworkers and I started a website. Since then as many as nine different people spent as much as three hours a day, one day a week, two sometimes even three weeks a month to bring you Majority Eats.
What is Majority Eats you ask? Well, if you’re anything like me, you work in some sort of office type setting where on any given day a group of you will go out to lunch together. If your office mates are anything like mine, the first five to ten minutes of said lunch break are spent debating about where to go. Well argue no longer. Majority Eats solves that problem. It also solves the problem of where to go to watch the game, what bars to hit on Friday night, and where to go for girl’s night out, or anything else that involves deciding on where to eat.
To use the site, all you have to do is register, create a group (and you can create multiple groups for different groups of friends) and invite your group members. Then you can use the google maps search we have built in to find your restaurants and start voting. By default a daily Lunch event will automatically be created for you, but you can also add future events and set a time when the polls close. You can also opt to get notifications when a new event is scheduled for a vote, or when the voting period is almost over.
Let democracy prevail and end your lunchtime arguments once and for all.
We are now live, so sign up, invite your coworkers, try it out and let us know what you think. Also keep your fingers crossed that our potentially tens of new visitors don’t crash the server. Yes tens. I’m pretty sure that’s all we can handle.
Even if you don’t use the site, you would help us out if you at least visited and clicked the Like button for it.
