San Diego, CA – August 2, 2016 – It’s Just Lunch, the country’s premiere matchmaking service for busy professionals, celebrates its 25th anniversary this summer. Founded on the premise that face-to-face meetings – a casual lunch or drink after work – are the ideal first date, It’s Just Lunch has grown to serve clients in 39 states (plus the District of Columbia), Canada and four overseas countries. The It’s Just Lunch six-step process forgoes the detached nature of online dating in favor of a tailored concierge service.
“Over the past 25 years, the dating world has changed fundamentally,” said Melissa Brown, CEO of It’s Just Lunch. “The internet has changed the way single’s meet but it is very impersonal and uncertain. It’s Just Lunch offers singles an alternative – we get to know each of our clients on a personal level and hand-pick potential matches. Our process is personalized and it’s proven.”
The It’s Just Lunch method is backed by research into modern dating preferences. It’s Just Lunch conducted a recent study of over 2,100 singles. The results validated that the favorite attributes of concierge matchmaking – over traditional or online dating – include interaction with a personal matchmaker, the ease of having guaranteed dates set up for them, and the private nature of the service.
“With online dating you never know who’s on the other side of the line,” said Desireé Schlitt, an It’s Just Lunch client who met her husband through the service. “IJL had better quality people who were interesting to me. It truly was an experience that was tailored for me.”
“It’s Just Lunch makes it very easy to meet someone,” said Shane and Jennifer Day, who married after they met through It’s Just Lunch. “We’ve recommended It’s Just Lunch to friends because wading through other online dating options is tiresome and tiring. And letting somebody else do that work for you is the best way to go.”
“It’s Just Lunch is truly full service,” added Brown. “Our matchmakers’ job is not over after setting up the first date; on the contrary, it’s only the beginning. We get feedback after every date so we can fine tune the next match. We don’t rely on a computer making arbitrary selections from a database of names. We’re real matchmakers with years of experience working passionately to make sparks fly for our clients. I still get goosebumps every time I hear that our clients are getting married. Our sole focus is helping clients meet that special someone.”
