Kickstarter Places is putting the spotlight on restaurants all across the United States. Restaurants are one of the biggest sectors for Kickstarter and many have grown to be successful. Because of this, Kickstarter is making a map using Google's map engine to point out all the different successful restaurants that have come because of their site.
While this idea can seem self-serving, it shows the site's massive reputation as not only a restaurant starter but as a business generator in general. For example one restaurant, Superior Motors close to Pittsburgh, just raised over $300,000, which just goes to show how powerful the platform is. Kickstarter may look into making a restaurant only page very soon, but for now the spotlighting is a great start.
