Money Saving App

Huddersfield BID would like to share some information regarding a fantastic NEW App, SMASH. SMASH, a new app aiming to help young people Save Money and Stay Healthy. SMASH will give 13 to 24-year old’s a discount of up to 20% off the healthier food options at ‘food to go’ retailers. This includes fast food chains, restaurants, supermarkets, sandwich bars and coffee shops.

By working with outlets that young people are already shopping at, SMASH aims to shift demand toward the healthier options by making healthier food more affordable and accessible than less healthy alternatives.

Tech start-up Smash, which aims to offer young people discounts on healthy food, has secured £1m in funding to launch its new app, and announced the appointment of Ella’s Kitchen founder Paul Lindley as chairman.

Smash – Save Money And Stay Healthy – is set to launch in early 2021. It has been founded by ex-KFC board member Chris Holmes, who was most recently MD at Italian restaurant chain Ask.

Along with the appointment of Lindley, Jamie Oliver head of nutrition Jenny Rosborough will sit on the advisory board.

The new app will offer 13 to 24-year-olds up to 20% off healthier food options at food-to-go retailers. Smash will be free to download and will show the closest participating outlets, as well as the healthier options to choose from. The menu can be browsed by retailer, nutrition content and food type, as well as through vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free filters. Users will be able to access an instant discount by scanning a QR code at the point of sale.
