Local Eats Week is a variation on Restaurant Weeks events that take place across the country, is offered annually through the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce and in partnership with Salem Five Bank and DoorDash. The purpose of Local Eats Week is to drive patrons to Stoneham eateries during what might otherwise be a slow time for business. There is no cost to participate and is a great opportunity to showcase your business, attract new customers and support fellow eateries.
This year’s event will take place from Monday, May 17 through Sunday, May 23. We invite all restaurants to participate in offering a promotion of their choice. Example promotions could include prix fixe menu options, daily discounts and special deals throughout the week. In addition to week long promotions and offers, we have added a Take-Out & a Movie Night on the Town Common on Friday, May 21 where area eateries can offer a set menu for movie goers to take advantage of and have it delivered to eat prior to the movie. We will also host a Restaurant Crawl on Saturday, May 22, 2pm-5pm. Participating restaurants will offer a tapas style dish or dishes of a few menu items at a discount price giving patrons the opportunity to try several eateries during the afternoon.
We need you to make this event a success!
The success of this event relies on members of the restaurant community coming together in support of one another to demonstrate the variety of options there are available to restaurant-goers in Stoneham. The Chamber will promote Local Eats Week through a comprehensive advertising campaign designed to drive customers to local restaurants, bakeries and eateries. Promotion will include
- Press releases to local media outlets and an insert in the Stoneham Independent the Thursday before Local Eats Week begins,
- In-person events to drive consumers to your business,
- Paid social media ads and promotion,
- Posters and promotional materials to show your participation in the event; and
- Creation of a detailed landing page for your business in our directory that receives 20k+ hits annually.
