Santa Cruz, California – The Apptopus is forging ahead with the support of its community and is
proud to announce that it has been selected to attend the Google for Startups Sales Academy.
Google for Startups Sales Academy provides startup founders with essential sales
skills and practical applications for acquiring new customers and partnerships or securing funding.
The founder of The Apptopus, Daniel Hernandez, has also been accepted into the Founders Institute,

methodology to get startups’ traction and funding. The Apptopus is very excited about this intensive 14-week
program and has high hopes of establishing some key relationships to help them get the funding they need.
The founder said, “We are now operating in 12 cities across California, and restaurants that work with The Apptopus
are generating up to $48K per month in additional revenue. We work with food trucks, quick or light service
restaurants, and ghost kitchens, and 80% of the businesses we work with are owned by Latinos. Online ordering is a
crucial extension of a restaurant, it’s no longer a luxury, it is a necessity and it’s here to stay. Even post-COVID, your
customers will continue to order online.”
“We were losing up to $10k every month in commissions and fee to third-party applications. With the money we
lost, we could have opened a new restaurant. Thanks to The Apptopus, we are generating up to $36K per month
in commission-free revenue.”Jonny Lopez, co-owner of Lopez Taqueria in Sunnyvale, California
