The Food Network Launches Competing Reservation Site To Open Table

Open Table owns the online reservation business. Now the Scripps Network, which we know better as the Food Network, wants to get in on the game. It has launched a competing service called CityEats that will leverage its Food Network brand name. The main difference is that CityEats will charge restaurants less than Open Table has.

Open Table charges establishments $200 to $700 enrollment fee, levies a $1 per reservation fee on top of that, and tacks on a monthly charge of $199. 

CityEats, which is up and running in Philly and DC with plans for San Francisco and NYC later this year, will charge restaurants $0.75 per reservation and $175 to $200 a month.
