For most of us, finding what we are looking for in the Yellow Pages has become but a distant memory, since directory research is nothing more than a mouse click away on the Internet. While it is unfortunate that many of us still see these thick books delivered to our doorstep several times each year, most of them go straight to the landfill or serve as an oversized paper weight.

The US Census Bureau estimates that 90% of us have regular access to the internet at home, work, or school, and the great majority of that number use the internet to research products or services before they buy. With such instantaneous results that search engines provide, it is no wonder that most people don't want to waste the time or space that is needed in continuing to use the phone book as a resource.

Just over a year ago, we discovered what we believed to be a missing segment of business directories on the Internet. While many business and restaurant directories exist, one could not find an Internet source that provided more detailed information such as pictures and menus for restaurants.

Enter – a singular and unique concept that has already been a big hit in the tri cities with an average of over 500 visitors a day checking into the site. Many people and offices are now using this site as their resource for carryout menus and discovering new places to eat within the Great Lakes Bay region.

We welcome you to take the site for a test drive, and we encourage your feedback as we work on our continual quest to improve the ease of use and functionality of the site. Many exciting new features are in the works and will be soon unveiled that will allow for even easier searching and sorting of restaurants, their services, and the foods they offer.

Even in the site's current stage of its continual evolution, you can already search and sort food items served at different restaurants with many thousands of menu items already listed on the site. With easy ways to search and sort these restaurants and their menus, it will more than likely introduce you to great dining establishments in our area whose service and food will win your patronage.

If you don't see a restaurant or menu on our site, please let us know, or let the restaurant know. We pride ourselves in not only offering affordable and effective e-marketing, but also as an invaluable resource for the public. Plus we will publish their information and menu for free! Additionally, if you have ideas for how we can improve this directory, please do let us know, as we greatly value all feedback while we work to expand and offer additional options to ensure the site is intuitive and easy to use for everybody.

Meanwhile, we invite you to explore several of our featured restaurants included within this supplement.
