We are proud to have Flipstop as our second Newest Member in our Entertainer Tier Level, and we are honored to be a part of their app. https://www.flipstop.it/ . The app was founded by Mick Riego, a proud Fil-Am from New York City, now based in Los Angeles, California USA and Makati, Philippines.
A Filipino-American in Los Angeles has launched Flipstop, a smartphone app that beautifully displays the nearest Filipino establishments to users based on their current location. Mick Riego, creator of the app, came up with the idea when he first moved to Los Angeles from New York City in 2013 and found it challenging to discover new Filipino restaurants to try.
Riego has since expanded the idea for the app to include discovery not only of Filipino restaurants, but of all other types of establishments catering to Filipinos, including bakeshops, grocery stores, hair salons, auto mechanics, allergists, dentists, caterers, skin care, karaoke bars, car dealerships, photographers, wedding planners, DJ’s, veterinarians, real estate agents, Filipino schools, concerts and comedy events, non-profit community groups, online retailers, notable Filipino personalities, and more – all to be found efficiently on one app.
Flipstop was created to help you and our fellow Filipinos across the United States, Canada and Australia connect more easily to literally everything Filipino around us wherever we may be. The app works by detecting Filipino-owned or Filipino-focused businesses, service providers, community groups, activities, personalities and upcoming events in the vicinity based on your current location and displaying them to you as interactiveTILES arranged by nearest to farthest on a beautiful scrolling grid.
The main problem Flipstop wanted to solve with is this: just as the Filipino diaspora is scattered around the world, so are the channels and media that Filipinos in the United States and elsewhere use to discover and connect with Filipino establishments and organizations. And many of the digital platforms currently used are not specifically made for the Filipino community. With Flipstop, he wants to provide a singular, simple-to-use affinity platform that’s always accessible on a device that Filipinos are never without: their phones. From the moment you launch the app on your screen, you’re looking at nothing but establishments and entities meant for Filipinos.
Proud Filipinos in the United States want a faster, easier and more fun way to discover, connect with and share Filipino businesses. Flipstop is the app for that. Your search results are always shown beautifully by nearest to farthest from wherever you are. Search locally and nationally. Their visual interface makes browsing fun and engaging. You can also get your business to appear on Flipstop!
Flipstop makes it super easy for Filipino businesses to be discovered by you. And YOU help those Filipino businesses with your love and support. It’s Free and just a click away! There’s no shortage of enterprising Filipinos and Filipino talent across many industries. So, he created Flipstop to be the one stop where all of them can be found.
