Mcferren is majoring in Marketing, and plays basketball for Chico State. He met his business partners, John Barton and Robert Yang, last summer.

The app is free, and has over 1,000 downloads.

“It benefits everybody – students, community, businesses…There’s multiple things you can do in Chico, besides going to party or going out to the bars,” said Mcferren.
