Yelp Launches In Portugal

LISBON, Portugal, Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Yelp Inc. (NYSE: YELP), the company that connects consumers with great local businesses, today announced the availability of Yelp Portugal ( http://www.yelp.pt).

"A country as distinctive and charismatic as Portugal was destined to enter the Yelp fold, and we are excited to welcome them in -- the nation's love of Fado suggests fatalism might be very much on trend," explains Miriam Warren, Vice President of New Markets. "A country where locals can surf 365 days a year, traverse Europe's longest bridge, eat the most shellfish per person on the planet, and use ATMs so sophisticated you can pay your income taxes from one, will undoubtedly prove a valuable addition to the global Yelp community."

The 24th country to develop a Yelp community is steeped in history, one that lays claim to the longest-lived of the modern European colonial empires that spanned almost 600 years. The arrival of Yelp marks a new era, one that connects people to great local businesses locally and across the world in 14 different languages.

Lisbon will be the focus of the initial community building efforts and Yelp will hire a local Community Manager to be based there and lay the foundations of the first Portuguese Yelp community. The full-featured site will be available across the whole of Portugal however. Everyone  from the 'End of the World' in the far south of the country, to the Port producing Norte region in the North can now share their insights on what is good and great about their local businesses via their Internet connected desktop or mobile device.
