Our promise to Madison Originals

hankr is the only visual guide to locally-owned restaurants that's proven to help you reach and attract more new customers. Founded in Wisconsin and launched in Milwaukee in February, the hankr mobile app has already been adopted by over 6,000 diners and accumulated more than 117,000 gotta-have-it-now impressions for locally-owned restaurants. 

What the heck is hankr?

For Madison area diners, hankr is the first entirely-visual guide to local food. Our mobile app gives them an up-close look at the best dishes around and helps them easily find exactly the meal they're craving right now.

For Madison Originals members, hankr is the only way to showcase your food in front of people looking for a place to eat right now - without any effort, without dealing with review sites, and without cutting into your margins on every table.

How do Madison Originals members get on hankr?

Getting your restaurant and food showcased on hankr is dead-simple, and doesn't take your time away from doing what you do best: running your restaurant. Once you choose your package, the onboarding process looks like this for you and your staff:


Step 1: Schedule a time for a friendly hankr photographer to visit your restaurant.

Step 2: On photoshoot day, make and bring food to our photographer at a table.

Step 3: There is no step 3 - we take care of everything else!
