The music download application was developed specifically for Bruegger’s by Metablocks, Inc. and SocialGrub, a service of Restaurant eMarketing that develops innovative social media marketing tools for the restaurant and retail industry. SocialGrub was recently named one of Hospitality Technology’s Breakthrough Award nominees and has developed countless Facebook applications and coupons for restaurants over the past few years.
