The IDEA of EAT SLEEP REPEAT
Shaybi Shah did the business of cafes and restaurants for 4years. When He left this business his friends used to ask him to make their reservations to those particular restaurants so that they can avail the discounts and feel privileged. So there popped up the idea of ESR in his mind.
Secondly, On the basis of experience that he has gained, he knew what problems a restaurant owner suffers. So, basically, He wanted to serve both ends being a customer and being an owner.
Being an experienced individual with 4 years in the foodservice industry, He felt the need to change the norm in the marketing trend from paid, biased reviews to a genuine merit-based reviewing system that would benefit not only the food company but the general public, as well.
Furthermore, He noticed that access to quality food is an endeavor to many, like students, and so offering them discounts and deals can be a way to expand restaurant consumer base, thus benefiting both edges.
‘Eat in your world, Share in ours’
How it All Get Started?
He started this company from a Facebook group on 3rd of March 2016. And now the Website of Eat Sleep Repeat is also under construction and in the final phase.

He always tries to provide them with many perks and incentives for their dedication. Secondly, He keeps on changing and filtering the team members according to the need and potential.
How Did They Strategize All this?
With the count of food places in Lahore exceeding 2000+, there arises the need for promotion of quality food places. ESR helps food vendors meet quality merits either home-based or restaurants to reach out to their targeted audience.
In view to this, members can be able to narrow down the vast variety of food places based on honest reviews of other members regarding taste, service, and affordability; this will make the search for a positive dining experience smooth and efficient.
The Facebook Food Directory
So they Basically are providing the Facebook Directory for Foodies. So that they can provide actually targeted marketing which Facebook fails to do. They want every restaurant of Pakistan on their panel providing discounts as well as being their Digital Marketing Clients.
And those who avail the discounts will be targeted by the ESR Team to do the Target Marketing. Moreover, They help small but standard vendors to compete with the current giants of the restaurant world through the revenue sharing policy of ESR.
