Yelp Arrives in Denmark
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Yelp (NYSE: YELP), the community-led city guide and search site, today announced the availability of Yelp Denmark (http://www.yelp.dk). Beginning today, Danes are able to create accounts on Yelp.dk to share their opinions about great local businesses and services. Yelp’s free iPhone and Android applications will also be made available in Denmark, as well as its free suite of business owner tools: Yelp for Business Owners (http://biz.yelp.dk).
“When you add the infamous honesty and dry wit of the average Dane to their attention to detail in all that they do (especially with regards to food preparation), we believe we have the perfect fundamentals for a thriving Yelp community,” said Miriam Warren, Vice President of European Marketing, Yelp. “Whether it’s to find the best place to try the now internationally famous Smorrebrod, or to share their excitement of a day at the Tivoli Gardens, we look forward seeing the Yelp community grow and develop across Denmark as the go-to source to find great local businesses.”
The site supports Danish, Swedish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, English, and Spanish, providing users access to local insights in any one of these languages. Denmark is the twelfth country to have a dedicated Yelp community in Europe as the company continues to deliver on its international growth strategy.
While available throughout Denmark, Yelp will focus its initial community building efforts in Copenhagen — a city-by-city approach that the company has used to launch in markets throughout the world.
