Can I use the Fat Boy App for free, or is a membership required? We no longer offer a free membership  However, upgrading to a Fat Boy or Dining Diva membership unlocks a range of exclusive benefits and features.

Why do some apps charge a membership fee, and is it worth it? Many apps, including the Fat Boy App, charge a nominal membership fee to maintain platform integrity and discourage fake accounts or spam. The fee also helps support small businesses. It’s worth it for users who want exclusive features, deeper connections, and a genuine foodie experience.

Why do we charge members a fee instead of the restaurants?

At the Fat Boy App, our mission is to build a vibrant community that stands together with and for local, family-owned businesses. From the beginning, we have been dedicated to honoring the heart and soul of these establishments, which are often overshadowed by larger franchises. Here’s why we’ve chosen this approach:

Community Focus

Our primary goal is to create a supportive and enthusiastic community of food lovers who cherish unique culinary experiences. By charging a membership fee, we ensure that our community is comprised of genuinely invested members who are passionate about discovering and supporting local gems. This fosters a sense of belonging and mutual support among our users and the businesses we highlight.

Supporting Local Businesses

We’ve pivoted from our original model to offer our members a 5% discount at “Fat Boy Approved” establishments. This change directly benefits both our members and the local businesses they frequent. By waiving the fees for restaurant owners, we remove any financial barriers that might prevent small, family-owned businesses from joining our platform, ensuring we can feature as many hidden gems as possible.

Independence from Ads and Corporations

Our membership fees allow us to maintain the integrity of our platform without relying on in-app ads or funding from large corporations. Accepting money from big businesses could compromise our mission and lead to those corporations overshadowing the very mom-and-pop establishments we aim to promote. By keeping our operations community-funded, we stay true to our values and focus entirely on celebrating local dining experiences.

Tangible Benefits for Members

The membership fee is a modest investment that provides significant returns. Members not only enjoy exclusive discounts but also access a community-driven platform free from intrusive advertisements. Additionally, your membership supports the ongoing development and improvement of our app, ensuring we can continue to bring you the best local dining experiences.

In essence, our membership fee is a way for us to collectively support and uplift the local dining scene, ensuring that both our members and the businesses they love can thrive. We believe this approach best serves our community’s interests and sustains the unique, flavorful journey that the Fat Boy App offers.
