Industry: Mobile Apps

Finding a black-owned business shouldn't have to be a challenge. The platform Bburb makes it quick & simple. A new cash contest for customers is underway to help boost patronage.

Los Angeles, CA (PRUnderground) January 17th, 2019

When black-owned businesses and services connect with black customers, all involved, including the greater community benefits. That’s the spirit that has inspired the exciting black-owned business, service, and customer platform Bburb, and its eye-opening new contest. For 10-months Bburb will be giving a $100 gift certificate away each month to a customer who visits three or more black-owned businesses or service providers, either online or in-person. To qualify for the contest, you must be a follower of Bburb on Instagram and Facebook, document your experience with a photo or video, leave a review of the businesses on the Bburb app, and post the pictures to social media using the hashtag #bburbvillage on Instagram or a tag Bburb on Facebook. The end result is helping build black-owned businesses and giving consumers a $100 gift certificate to use on their favorite goods or services at a black-owned business.

“This is exciting for us to help encourage support for the Bburb community,” commented a spokesperson from the platform. “Let’s help our village grow together and all be more empowered!”

The Bburb app is available as a free download from both the iTunes and Google Play store.

Recent black-owned businesses featured as Bburb highlights include “Dental Partners of Owings Mills”, “Fresh Bakery”, “Who Will You Inspire”, and “TMG 2 Travel”, to name just a few.

The reviews for the Bburb platform have been extremely positive.

Michelle S., from Boston, recently said in a five-star review, “I do my best to always support black-owned businesses. Sometimes it has been a little bit difficult with me being new in the city. A resource like Bburb is a huge help since I travel a great deal and the app is so easy to use!”
