The date of our last blog post reads September 2015 and its safe to say that a lot has happened since that Fall. Today we’re dropping in to give an update on the latest at Oak City Labs and our plans for the future.

A Delicious New Release

Releasing into the AppStore just before the holidays, CurEat is the culmination of several months of work with one of Raleigh’s most engaging entrepreneurs, Steve Mangano. What started as a proof-of-concept project to see if our client’s idea was feasible, grew into a native custom iOS app available today for download. CurEat helps clear the clutter to help you find independent restaurants and bars quickly when you travel in the US. You’ll find notable chefs, including James Beard Award winners, on CurEat serving up their recommendations for major cities across the Southeast and beyond. Up Next? A native Android version releasing later this year!

A Quaint New Home

Like any start-up, Oak City Labs has operated out of a few different places during its existence so far, but this past Fall we settled into our permanent location in historic, downtown Apex and it couldn’t feel more like home. Our office is located above the local coffee shop (convenient for afternoon breaks!) and across the street from the fire station. We love the small town feel and how it reminds us of our roots. We hope you’ll stop by for a visit!

A Few New Faces

Most of the team (sans Ashlee) at the CurEat launch party in January

The Oak City Labs team has changed since we last updated here, officially welcoming two software engineers and a project manager to the team! You can jump over to our Team page to read more about these new faces. Our expanded team allows us to better serve our clients and improve upon our marketing efforts. Which leads nicely to our next update…

A (sort of) New Blog

With all of the changes happening around here, it may seem ambitious to say that we’re launching an effort to update this blog once a week with new content – but that’s exactly what we’re doing! Check back weekly on Wednesdays for new content from the team. We’ll be sharing about client projects, latest technologies, tips, tricks and more!
