We regularly reach up to 50,000 individuals weekly through our Social Media channels.

We also send 2-3 emails to our 6,500+ customer members on a monthly basis highlighting the best deals that are available from our restaurant partners. We can accomodate specific targeted email blasts for our restaurants on a per-campaign basis. Please speak with your account manager for details.

If you're interested in discounted media buys, we can help coordinate special media purchases with local radio, print, and TV channels.
