Talk about good timing. Last month, BeingLatino posted an article about how Groupon can go gold with Latinos and now PapaPosible launches this week!? Just like Groupon and LivingSocial, PapaPosible works with city-wide vendors, you sign up for the deal in your city and boom, instant savings. The first five markets to be including in the deals should be of no surprise: New York, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and Miami.
According to an article on Portada, Ron Rimkus, one of the site cofounders told Portada that his company just hired seven sales employees to work on the five local markets. He cites needs (groceries, dentist, auto maintenance), luxuries (restaurants, spas) and activities (soccer, boat cruises) as the main categories of advertisers. Looks like LivingSocial and Groupon have their next big competitor. That's of course only if they don't want our money. Just sayin.
