Lincoln tech company unveils new name, now state’s top food and drink app

A Lincoln tech start-up is booming in the Haymarket.

LocalAnyDay – formerly called DealAnyDay – is now the number one food and drink app in Nebraska. 

The app compiles specials and discounts from local businesses to help users find the best deals. 

The company held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday to unveil the new brand. 

The company’s CEO, Mailani Veney, says the app now covers 99% of Lincoln’s restaurants. 

"We will give you a very simple list on our search engine of who has what special and, if it’s not a special, people want to know two things: location and price – with no hassle," Veney said. 

"So, right away we can show you on a list or even better we can show you on a map."

LocalAnyDay partnered with another Lincoln start-up called Don’t Panic Labs to craft the technology. 

The company, which started in 2015, is now up to 27 employees – including some in Hawaii and London. 

Veney says the app is currently being used in 33 cities across the U.S.
