Still don't believe ordering local can uplift your community?

How about this $20 shift example...

Take your average city suburb of 30,000 people.

If everyone in the community (over the age of 18) were to shift JUST $20 of their existing monthly spending to independent, locally owned restaurants, it would generate at least:

$4,112,640.00*
back into the local economy!

So there you have it. When you order from a restaurant on ChowDown, you can take pride in that you've helped a local, independent restaurant live another day.

Just an FYI, we aren't anti Applebee's, Chili's, or Olive Garden at all. There's space for everyone! We are simply fans of the economic and social effects of supporting local restaurants!


Happy ordering.

Love,

The ChowDown Team

* The calculation is based on 83% of the population being over 18, shifting $20/mo for 12 months, with 68% of the revenue remaining in the local economy. Based, in part, on the Andersonville Study of Retail Economics.
