COVID-19 has had quite an effect on the service industry that employs more than 15 million Americans. So now more than ever we need to come together as a community and support our local businesses. That is why a group of restaurants have come together to ask for help from their community members, partners and guests to support them during this pandemic.

#TheGreatAmericanTakeout was created to do just that. On Tuesday, March 24th, these restaurants asked their community to order takeout or delivery in support of their business.  In an effort to amplify the messaging to the local community, we developed a few campaigns to create some additional reach.

Each campaign was locally focused by geotargeting through zip codes, cities/towns or pin placement via the Facebook and Instagram ad network.  Each of the campaigns featured ads with images of dishes from the participating restaurants.

Here are a few of the campaign ads that we successfully ran last week, along with some of their results.  And, if you didn’t participate in the inaugural #TheGreatAmericanTakeout, there is always next Tuesday!

These campaigns highlighted the support of local businesses.
