We’re excited to announce that our Scottsdale marketing agency is offering to help a limited number of healthy restaurants in the Valley with a free restaurant marketing program, valued at up to $30,000 in marketing services. We love supporting local businesses, especially our favorite and new restaurants, and want to use this time during the COVID-19 pandemic to help support them. This program will be offered for 60 days at no expense to the restaurants.

For interested restaurant owners, please fill out in inquiry form here. Submission will close on Friday, May 1st, 2020. We will then review all submissions and select finalists who will be asked to fill out an onboarding application to collect more information. To qualify, the restaurant needs to be local, not part of a national franchise or chain, offers healthy food options and is a small business under 250 employees across all locations, if more than one location.

“Our team of foodies have always enjoyed access to top restaurants and great food in our area,” says Jay Feitlinger, founder & CEO of StringCan. “As we watched restaurants across the Valley take a drastic hit in sales due to COVID-19, we felt compelled to do our part to help. We know many proud local restaurateurs and want to be clear that this is a hand up, not a hand out. During this time, more than ever, we all need to be willing to accept some help. We want to reduce the stress these amazing restaurants are feeling and ensure they’re still in business when life returns back to the new normal, which is why we decided to make the program free. We’re looking forward to helping them by answering their marketing questions, sharing strategies to better engage their customers, and leverage our team of marketers so they can improve their sales.”

During this 60 day free marketing program, we will invest resources to understand the restaurant’s goals, evaluate their current marketing efforts, and identify how the restaurant can provide the most value to their current and prospective customers. We will look closely at their website, social media, current marketing messaging, competitors, and provide brand and marketing direction, as well as, offer flexible weekly marketing support to help increase customer retention, customer acquisition and improve the restaurant’s overall brand during and after this current pandemic.
