Press Release (Wellons Communications)
CitySpree will replace GoWaiter in Colorado Springs effective immediately. GoWaiter customers living in and around the Colorado Springs area can still place orders at GoWaiter.com and now also at CitySpree.com to receive the same great restaurant service they were getting previously.
The new brand reflects how the restaurant delivery company is taking its fresh approach to dining and delivery options to hungry customers in the Colorado Springs area and across the country.
CitySpree President Tony Ceppaluni said the company is positioned to be a leader in providing the critical last mile of the delivery business. CitySpree is based in Fort Myers, Fla., and currently serves another 14 markets across the country.
CitySpree's growth goes beyond exceptional delivery. The company will be a major player in the technology and production of critical media resources to serve both restaurants and diners.
In Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas, CitySpree delivers for restaurants that do not normally provide delivery services. Some of these restaurants include: 3 Margaritas, California Pizza Kitchen, Coffee and Bagel Corner, Dickey's BBQ, Extreme Pizza, Heart of Jerusalem Café, Mandarin Bistro,. On the Border, Taste of India and Wild Wings & Things. CitySpree will be adding new restaurants regularly as it expands its reach.
"Our rebrand reflects a new direction for this company - one based on superior service and cutting edge technology," said Ceppaluni. "Our new mobile-responsive website, portal integration, API connectivity and refreshing new marketing plan will play a major role in our short and long term growth. We are also developing great strategic partnerships through our expansion and have strengthened our current relationships as well."
Cepalluni continued, "The restaurant delivery service is a very fragmented sector of the restaurant industry and we want to be the preeminent provider of quality restaurant food anywhere our customer's desire - whether home, at the office or if they're vacationing in the area - and give customers a great ordering experience."
During the transition to the new name CitySpree, the GoWaiter.com website will continue to operate through mid-summer. Ceppaluni said longtime customers should not experience any difficulties ordering online through CitySpree.com. Hungry diners can also call (877) 285-6178 to place an order nationwide. Gift cards are available if you would like to send a gift to another CitySpree location.
CitySpree Colorado Springs is open seven days a week for ordering lunch and dinner. The CitySpree delivery service charges the same price as customers experience inside the restaurant. There is a small delivery fee, depending on distance from each restaurant to the destination.
For ordering and details please go to www.CitySpree.com.

Roger Myers has been turning wrenches since he was 16 years old. He was a mechanic and instructor in the Army and afterwards worked for a number of companies, including Firestone, LubeStop, Auto Tech and more. He’s worked at and managed shops for more than 17 years.
He and his son Jesse (who’s been a mechanic himself for 2 years) had been talking about opening a place of their own. They looked at a site in Pueblo, then heard that the former AAMCO/Muffler Masters location in Security-Widefield was available. Roger has lived in the Fountain Valley area since 1992. He and his wife Raquel have 6 children, Jessy, Casey, Roger, Issac, Daniel and Jaquelyn. Roger liked the idea of having a shop in Security-Widefield. They closed the deal on the 5-lift, 6-bay shop in January and had their “soft opening” Monday, March 9.
A Good Mechanic offers general automotive repair and diagnostics. Roger is ASE Master Tech and Advanced Engine Performance certified and is well aware that his success depends on great customer service and satisfied customers.
A Good Mechanic is located at 1 Widefield Blvd, on the corner of Fontaine and Widefield Blvd. You can reach them at 719-390-2988. Hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 to 5:30 and from 8am to 5pm Saturdays.
They're open for business as of today and they’ll be doing a Grand Opening on March 28th.
Denver startup Cheddar Up was recently selected as one of 34 startups offered a coveted spot in this spring’s 500 Startups San Francisco accelerator class. 500 Startups, one of Silicon Valley’s most prestigious programs, offers founders the oomph they need to scale – including community, advice, curriculum, hands-on support, an extensive network of connections and last, but certainly not least – cold hard cash to grow their businesses. The program generally accepts less than 5% of worldwide applicants.
Members of the Cheddar Up team will spend approximately four months traveling back and forth between Denver and San Francisco to take part in the intensive learning experience and immersive program. The company, led by powerhouse mom entrepreneurs Nichole Montoya and Molly DiCarlo, plans to use the 500 experience to expand its network in Silicon Valley and across the world, and gain additional expertise in user growth and distribution. They will combine the cash investment from this program with other seed funds they have raised totaling over $600,000 to date.
Success has been an upward trajectory for the team since first testing their concept in the Denver market in late 2013. They continue to grow and are now helping thousands of schools and groups with collecting payments totaling more than $2,000,000.
“Family tech is a space we continue to invest in and are bullish on,” said Christine Tsai, Managing Partner at 500 Startups. “We selected Cheddar Up because it’s solving a huge pain point and they're laser focused on a target customer that controls the majority of household spend – moms. The team’s deep understanding of the problem and early traction were also key factors in their acceptance into 500."
About Cheddar Up:
Cheddar Up (www.cheddarup.com) is the simplest way to collect and track online payments from a group. Its initial laser focus is on schools and moms who are still primarily handling these type of group transactions with checks and paper forms. Its wildly simple user interface makes collecting online payments accessible to anyone. Its users can create custom online payment pages in a matter of seconds for almost anything. Cheddar Up features robust online payer tracking, automatic reminders, no collector fees, custom form fields and the ability for people to pay in as few as three clicks. Parent Teacher Associations across the country, in particular, are finding it profoundly useful.
