Yelp Expands Presence In Central Europe With Launch In Poland





WARSAW, Poland, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Yelp Inc. (NYSE: YELP), the company that connects consumers with great local businesses, today announced the availability of Yelp Poland ( http://www.yelp.pl). Beginning today, people in Poland are able to create accounts on Yelp.pl to share their opinions about great local businesses and services. Yelp's free iPhone and Android applications will be available as well as its free suite of business owner tools: Yelp for Business Owners ( http://biz.yelp.pl ).

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20050511/SFW134LOGO)" Poland is very much at the geographic heart of Europe, a crossroads for eastern and western Europeans, and with this crossroads comes a fantastic mix of culinary, cultural and social ingredients," said Miriam Warren, Vice President of New Markets. "Opening up Poland to the Yelp community not only gets us excited about discovering the latest and greatest from the local residents, but it also opens up the platform for the estimated 20 million Poles that live outside the country."A high income economy[1] and the sixth largest in the European Union, Poland was the only country in the European Union that managed to avoid a recession after the global financial crisis. This ambitiously expanding economy filled with an educated and increasingly affluent population is now the nineteenth country to have access to the world of Yelp.Initially, Yelp's community building efforts will concentrate on Poland's capital Warsaw and the cultural capital of Krakow. However, the full-featured site will be available to all Poles across the entire country and will support English, Danish, Dutch, French, Finnish, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Spanish and Swedish, providing users access to local insights in any one of these eleven languages.
