A brand new app has been created for people dining out in Preston city centre.

Preston’s Business Improvement District (BID) is about to launch the Love Food Love Preston app with details of where to eat.

It also has the facility for users to contact their favourite eatery via the app. The app is being produced by local company Fuudey and provides users with the ability to search for their preferred cuisine options.

The app is part of the Love Food Love Preston campaign which runs throughout August and includes the ever-popular Lancashire Market on Friargate.

New for 2014 is “Dine with the Stars” – where members of the public have the chance to be joined by either celebrity chefs Jean Christophe Novelli or Paul Rankin or TV personality Sherrie Hewson.

Members of the public are invited to eat out at restaurants across the city centre and via a random draw they could have one of the special guests join them, and their party, for a course of dinner.

Love Food Love Preston, a now annual promotion, was launched in 2012 by TV favourite Gino D’Acampo.

It sees the city centre’s restaurants, grills and eating houses profiled via a huge campaign across the North West.

The free Love Food Love Preston app will be available for download on both apple and android platforms from August 1.

Those downloading the app have a chance to win £200 to spend in their favourite city centre restaurant simply by entering their email address within the app.

The BID is funded by businesses in the BID area that have a rateable business value of more than £10,000 PA. For full details, visit www.bidpreston.co.uk.
