DevelopLEE to Promote Locally-Owned Restaurants
DevelopLee’s mission is to provide a forum for business and community leaders to create opportunities that help revitalize North Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, and the MLK corridor.
November’s sub-committee meeting focused on raising awareness of the many locally-owned restaurants. There are many locally-owned-and-operated restaurants in each of these geographies, but often they don’t have the time or marketing resources to promote themselves. The task force proposed the creation of “Dine Local” a marketing campaign via a restaurant discount card. Each task force member has been asked to identify restaurants in each area that might be interested in participating in a local discount card. The restaurant would offer card holders a small discount or deal at no cost to them, helping to generate more foot traffic into their establishments.
Do you know a great restaurant in North Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres or the MLK area that would like to participate in this marketing initiative? For more information, contact Rachel Busch, Strategic Projects Manager, at (239) 839-8038 or at [email protected].
