Critique this idea #1: Cheap Eats Mobile App

This is a mobile app where shops and restaurants post discounts and offers for their food. To stay niche, this app is solely for F&B outlets and not other retail store.

Restaurant owners:
It ought to be spontaneous and restaurant owners can post as and when appropriate. For instance, if there are a bunch of fresh sandwiches at 9pm, a restaurant owner can just post: "Half price on all sandwiches!" The post can be set to expire/disappear after a certain time period (e.g 2hr) or toggled to stay permanent. Restaurant owners are limited to 2 post a day to prevent spam. Of course, restaurant owners can pay to BUMP (bring up my post).

Consumers:
On the consumer end, posts from restaurant owners will be visible based on distance. So a consumer can see ongoing offers or discount within a X mile radius. Consumers can choose to 'follow' specific restaurants and 'like' specific discounts or offers. The results (e.g 30 offers within a one mile radius) can be further categorized to popular, newest or followed.

Whats your thought on this idea? Is it confusing to you guys?
