Why We Care

We created SaveMAPS.io in March, 2020 as a nonprofit to help restaurants sell gift cards and process payments online. Within 8 weeks SaveMAPS partnered with 1300 businesses and received exposure from over 20 media outlets, such as Greenville Times and various other broadcasted news sources. We didn't have permission from the state to sell the gift cards on such a massive scale so we had to shut down SaveMAPS once we spread nationwide. But our story does not end there. It is our goal and apart of our mission to continue the spirit of SaveMAPS and provide every restaurant during these trying times in our country the tools succeed.
