What is Yokel?


Yokel is a restaurant fundraising marketplace that connects local groups (schools, youth sports teams, etc.) with local restaurants. Our platform streamlines the planning and execution of fundraisers, cutting down on inefficiencies and human error. It assists restaurants in managing staff, scheduling, and tax documentation for events, and facilitates post-event guest engagement. Local groups find it easier to promote and host their events, while participants get to enjoy special discounts, offers, and a way to provide feedback.

Our Vision

At Yokel, our long-term vision is to cultivate America’s largest network of restaurants and community groups, including schools and youth sports teams. We aim to create an expansive giving ecosystem where supporters of these local groups can contribute effortlessly. Our goal is for every supporter to have the Yokel app on their phone, enabling them to support their favorite local organizations seamlessly, wherever they shop. This will not only foster community spirit but also ensure that giving back is a simple, everyday part of dining and shopping experiences across the nation.
