It passed a few years since we launched tabelog.us. Though its number of unique users is still very small, considering US market, very recently this website started monetization.
Due to enriched contents like very useful coments and high resolution pictures tied to each restaurant and food are begining to solicit US consumers.
Daily basis revenue generated by advertisement is around 600 to 700 USD which can cover its office rent and some human resources cost. At this moment, we are just covering 4 cities that are NYC, Chicago, SF and LA.
During this fiscal year, we would expand this service to other big cities maybe located in State of Texas, State of Florida and possibly other states. Though annual basis P/L of this fiscal year would record red ink, the last few months’ monthly basis P/L might record some profit at OP level.
Looking forward to reporting more details to our stakeholders very soon,
