Happy New Year!

We sincerely hope all of you are doing well and are having a great start to 2021. 

The past year has certainly been filled with some unique obstacles, and we’re sure 2021 will come with challenges of its own. However, we’re confident that if we all work together, we’ll be able to have an inspiring and fulfilling new year! 

We’re so appreciative of your interest in ZOOO’s mission and can’t wait to share all of our upcoming goals with you. Thank you for following along on our journey to help local businesses thrive!

2020 Round-Up


Last year, we continued to build out an incredible team of creatives and developers who are committed to helping their communities.

Through everyone’s hard work, we were able to celebrate the launch of the ZOOO mobile app in Japan! The launch took place in October, and we’ve seen great success over the past three months. Over time, we’ve also continued to create new partnerships with local businesses throughout Japan. From restaurants to retail stores, ZOOO aspires to work alongside businesses of all kinds. One of our goals is to help locals and tourists alike find hidden gems throughout different regions, whether they’re looking to try a new dinner spot or a new hair salon. Local businesses are the backbone of any community, and we want to help them thrive!

Although we are still working on finalizing the U.S. launch of the ZOOO mobile app, we’ve been working hard to build positive relationships with local business owners and do our part to highlight some wonderful local venues. This has been a main focus of our social media channels as well as our blog! Each week, we aim to share at least one video from a local venue our team personally visited, and we also try to publish as many #ZOOOLocalFriday features as possible. We always welcome recommendations on new businesses we should feature!

Looking Ahead

This year, we’re anticipating the much-awaited U.S. launch of our mobile app! With our mobile app, users can check in at local businesses in order to earn Sound Points, which can later be redeemed for gift cards. This rewards system encourages shoppers to support local businesses and give back to their community. Additionally, app users can take advantage of coupons for specific venues, allowing them to save money while shopping small!

Right now, our launch target is set for early February, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, we’re looking forward to exploring more of Las Vegas, where our U.S. office is based. We can’t wait to develop even more partnerships with local businesses and share with you everything they have to offer.

Thank you so much for supporting your local community and keeping up with ZOOO! Remember to follow us @zooorewards and @zooorewards_jp and to join our VIP list to be the first to know when the app is officially live in the U.S. (Those who sign up are eligible for bonus Sound Points!)

Finally, if you’re a local business owner in Nevada or California, please consider signing up for our free beta program! You’ll have access to all of our partnership perks at zero cost to you for three months. If we fail to increase your store’s traffic flow during that time, our service will remain absolutely free until we do. Our goal is to help your business see more shoppers, and turn those shoppers into repeat customers. Reach out to learn more!

Thank you again for all of your support over the past year and beyond. 

Here’s to a fantastic new year!
