Map Guy & Digital Map Guy Owner
I started this business in 1996 as an effort to showcase some of the great small businesses and restaurants around Southern California. If you would like to get your business on the map, please email me.
My goal from the beginning has always been to connect tourists to quality restaurants. In 2006 I saw a huge need for this in the Disneyland area. This was before smart phones so I created a Dining Guide with a walking map of the area. I was surprised the hotels did not have anything to help their guests find local restaurants. It was a big hit from day one and it’s still going strong even with smart phones. I now have three tourist maps and distribute over 300,000 tourist maps to 120 hotels annually! Along with the Disney area Dining Guide I have the Carlsbad Visitor’s Guide and The Oceanside Coast Map. At this time all three of my tourist guides are the #1 “go to” maps in their areas. Since 2006 I have distributed over 4 million tourist guides! I am currently introducing a “restaurant referral program” for all 120 hotels, which looks very promising. This program will encourage the hotel personal to recommend their favorite local restaurant and they will receive gift certificates from those restaurants in return. Later this year I plan on including digital coupons to my website, digitalmapguy.com. This will help the young, paperless crowd find quality restaurants with discounts and a walking map of area..
