HotSchedules 10th Anniversary: Help Us Reach 10,000 Facebook Fans by 10.10.10!

Wow, how time flies! Ten years ago, HotSchedules officially launched HotSchedules v1 of our restaurant labor management solution. And with a lot of hard work, determination, and an amazing team on board, we’ve since grown from one customer (P.F. Chang’s China Bistro) in 2002 to more than 4,000 restaurants and over 425,000 users… and counting! […]

Wow, how time flies! Ten years ago, HotSchedules officially launched HotSchedules v1 of our restaurant labor management solution. And with a lot of hard work, determination, and an amazing team on board, we’ve since grown from one customer (P.F. Chang’s China Bistro) in 2002 to more than 4,000 restaurants and over 425,000 users… and counting!

This year, we are proud to be celebrating our 10th anniversary, and we want you – our users – to be a part of the party! We talk a lot about how HotSchedules helps enhance collaboration and open up the lines of communication within our customers’ organizations – now, we want to extend that communication to our users one-on-one by giving you the opportunity to voice your opinions and suggestions for how we can continue to make HotSchedules even better, whether you’re a corporate manager, GM, or hourly employee. Here’s what we’ve cooked up:

We’d like to reach 10,000 Facebook friends by October 10, 2010 – or “10K by 10.10.10”. If you join our Facebook page and respond to the 10.10.10 User Feedback Questions we’ll post on our wall every two weeks throughout the contest, you’ll be entered into a drawing for some very cool prizes incorporating our themes of restaurants and technology (think gift cards, cha-ching!), HotSchedules memorabilia, and the grand prize at the end of the contest – an Apple iPad. That’s 2 prizes a month until October 10, 2010!

We are very excited to celebrate our 10th anniversary with the people who have directly affected our success – YOU! As with any contest, there are a few easy rules:

To be eligible to win prizes, you must be an active HotSchedules user. You cannot just be a member of the HotSchedules group to win.

You must also be a HotSchedules Facebook “fan” at the time of the drawing in order to be eligible.
HotSchedules will post a “10.10.10. User Feedback Question” every 2 weeks on our Facebook page. That’s two questions each month. By responding to the posts (with content, not a “Like”) by the indicated deadline, you’ll be automatically entered into the next prize drawing.
Each question only requires you to respond once in order to be entered into the drawing. You will not be entered multiple times for each question should you respond multiple times.
Your response must make sense with the question (i.e., if we ask “What’s your favorite feature of HotSchedules?” then answering “MEATBALLS!!” would not get you an entry into the prize drawing. Even if it makes us laugh.)

We’re only giving away the iPad grand prize at the end if we reach our goal of 10,000 followers by October 10, so tell your co-workers (and other HotSchedules users you know) to “Like” HotSchedules on Facebook, too!

So, ready to get started? Click here to join us on Facebook and respond to our first question. We’ll be blogging and tweeting about this contest throughout to help remind you when new questions are posted. Good luck!
