CitiQuest.com Launches 850-City Portal Network

CitiQuest.com Inc., moving "to redefine the category of online city guides," launched a national network of portals offering consumers access to local information for over 850 cities throughout the United States.

The sites feature access to "a faster, more complete resource" identifying local options for restaurants, entertainment, job listings, new home loans and even directions to the hottest new places in town, the company said.

The CitiQuest.com network offers a menu-driven database of more than 11 million businesses, including each city's own home page, with more than 2,500 categories in the directory's menu system.

CitiQuest.com users can register on the site for access to free, personalized calendars, address books and e-mail capabilities.

"CitiQuest.com represents the new generation of online city guides with its national reach, covering more cities, in every state, than its competitors and offering users a one-stop destination for local information," said Daniel Johnson, co-founder and CEO of CitiQuest.com.

"Forming the right strategic relationships combined with increasing our national reach will allow us to leap into the forefront of the city guide arena."

To promote the launch, CitiQuest.com is sponsoring a Volkswagen New Beetle sweepstakes contest on Yahoo! By entering the contest, consumers also automatically become registered as CitiQuest.com members.
