HUDU activating new markets in Minneapolis, Omaha, Jacksonville, FL, and ten others

Des Moines, IA – January 31, 2024 (USANews.com) – HUDU, a first mover in the Gig Economy 2.0 or “GigTwo”, announced its activation of several key markets across the United States. Building on its successful launches in Des Moines, IA, and Dallas, TX, HUDU now brings its innovative GigTwo model to cities including; Minneapolis, MN, Omaha, NE, Jacksonville, FL, and nine additional cities in Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas.

This expansion represents HUDU’s dedication to supporting the GigTwo movement and bringing its competitive bid marketplace to all U.S. markets. At the core of HUDU’s philosophy is the belief that all users should have more control. Gig workers should have access to benefits and perks that, until now, have been exclusive to traditional employees.

HUDU is also expanding the type of options within the gig economy, extending it beyond conventional roles like drivers, designers, and dog walkers, to encompass a spectrum of services that utilize all skills and knowledge, from specialized skills such as photography to fundamental home projects like tree trimming. This approach reflects HUDU’s vision of building the predominant gig marketplace in the United States and beyond. HUDU is the marketplace built around empowering and supporting the gig economy.

“We built HUDU to empower gig workers across the country,”
stated Derreck Stratton, Founder & CEO of HUDU. “Our platform is a first of its kind and we’re excited to see the positive impact it has shown in our initial markets, and what it will have on gig work in these new markets.”

Stratton went on to say, “As we expand, it’s less about just growing our user base and more about fostering a new gig economy culture where people are valued and supported.”
HUDU invites residents of these cities to explore the advantages of HUDU, where gig work is not just a job, but a sustainable career choice. HUDU is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store or visit HeyHUDU.com.
