Q: What will I need to do? How much time is this going to take from me?
A: The bare minimum involvement is very simple. You’ll need to create an offer/deal for the week of October 12-19, 2011. Choose something that makes sense for your establishment: Free app or dessert with entree purchase, prix fixe menu, XX% off of the total bill, etc. When diners come in and mention the deal, you honor it. Pretty simple!
Of course, we’d love you to be more involved, especially through social media and the web. We’ll be providing some suggestions as time goes on, but we’d love shout outs via Facebook & Twitter, Ecorazzi Eats specials listed on Yelp and Foursquare, and promote it within your restaurant. You love us, we’ll send the love right back at you.
After the event has come to a close, we’ll be hand selecting 5 restaurants to receive feature articles on Ecorazzi and additional promotion to our readers. The restaurants selected will be those that we feel participated the most in helping send people back to us and overall participating in the campaign.

A:We hope to provide you with national exposure. Help you continue to build your name, both locally and as a leader in the sustainable restaurant industry. We’ll promote this across social media to help build your following.

A: Join us in Ecorazzi Eats Restaurant Week because it’s promoting healthy eating, sustainable practices. Join us because you’ll build your name. Join us because there is no risk to you! Join us because it should be a fun time.
