Hello alumni, I am a jasper graduate from 1991 living in Austin Texas. I along with my niece have built and launched an app called Wing Chick. Please check out our FB page and download the free app. Thanks for your support.
- Wing Chick is a way for women new to town to get to know the women and the town. If your wife or girlfriend has a business or two, you want that Wing Chick to get to know her.
- That new Wing Chick wants to meet like minded women to help them explore their new city or a city they are visiting. Your wife or girlfriend might be a great ambassador to your city/town and she may love to show people your city and introduce her to other friends.
- Maybe your wife or girlfriend needs to add a couple new friends into her circle of friends. We all have a friend or our wife or girlfriend that you may not really want your wife to spend too much time with. Wing Chick helps her expand her social network.
- Wing Chick connects moms to other moms for kid play dates
- Wing Chick connects women to other women for double dates with their husbands/girlfriends (again expanding the circle of friends).
- Wing Chick will help your wife or girlfriend find another Wing Chick to go to that musical that us guys refuse to go see with her. That Wing Chick is in the same boat with her husband.
- When a Wing Chick arrives in a new city, there are so many concerns from day care to grocery shopping to restaurants to kids activities, your wife or girlfriend can be an asset.
The app is for women only to be a safe place for women to meet other women for so many different reasons. Within the app there is a large list of interests to choose from so new Wing Chicks can see who your wife or girlfriend is about before making a connection.
We envision the app to be a global source for women to be there for other women, this is not simply a dating site, it is so much more.
So to wrap up, I have faith that we, with the help and input of many focus groups across the country, have something special here. We will be expanding the app with the ability to form Wing Chick groups as well as a forum to announce events that are happening in your area.
