CLEVELAND — Restaurants in Ohio City are teaming up for a good cause.
During the month of May, 11 establishments are calling for people to place a delivery or takeout order.
Ohio City Pizzeria spearheads fun campaign to keep Ohio City’s local eateries busy and reward consumers in the process.
John Litten, Executive Director of West Side Catholic Center and President of Ohio City Pizzeria, says the consumer challenge is designed to help support local Ohio City establishments while serving up great food and beverages during the COVID-19 crisis.
The 11 Challenge participants include Big Mouth Donut, The Black Pig, Bookhouse Brewing, Great Lakes Brewpub, Heck’s Café, Larder Deli & Bakery, Le Petit Triangle, Ohio City BBQ, Ohio City Pizzeria, Phoenix Coffee and Saucy Brew Works.
“We are truly excited to present this challenge to all the amazing Clevelanders who support the Ohio City community throughout the year,” says Litten. “We are fortunate to have so many outstanding food and drink establishments in our community, all of whom have stepped up during this crisis to help the community. Now we are banding together to challenge customers to visit each establishment between now and the end of May for a chance to receive a $25 gift card from each business.”
The rules are simple.
Participants must like and follow each of the participating restaurants on social media, order takeout or delivery from each establishment and post a photo on social media tagging the restaurant. Once you have a photo of your orders from all 11, submit the photos to OhioCityTakeoutChallenge@gmail.com with the subject Takeout Challenge and you will be entered in a drawing to win a $25 gift card from each restaurant.
