Neighborhood leaders of Adair Park, Capitol View, Capitol View Manor, Oakland City, Pittsburgh, Sylvan Hills, West End, and Westview are working together to support existing food businesses and attract new options to our community. We are asking local food businesses to commit to:
1) Creating a Respectful & Welcoming Environment for All Patrons;
2) Maintaining a Clean Establishment;
3) Providing a Safe Environment (including Shopping, Dining, Parking Areas, Sidewalks, Etc.);
4) Providing Healthy Food Options; and
5) Providing Fresh Food Options.
If the food establishment is agreeable to these basic standards, we will encourage our neighbors to intentionally support their business.
Once again, we are planning to support local food businesses by sponsoring “Cash Mobs” – targeted meet-ups in which we call on all neighbors to patronize a specific business on specific days and times. Cash Mobs not only demonstrate to business owners of the potential increased business they may receive from the local residents, but Cash Mobs will also potentially introduce new food and dining options to area residents who would otherwise look elsewhere for food options.
The Cash Mobs will officially begin with the 1st Annual Intown SW Atlanta Bowling Competition at the Metro Fun Center (1959 Metropolitan Pkwy) on Friday, June 26th, 2015 at 7pm! Games will begin promptly at 7:30pm. Awards and Prizes will be given to the neighborhood with the best Individual and Neighborhood Bowling Scores AND for the neighborhood with the highest representation!
A tentative schedule of follow-on Cash Mob meet-ups in each participating neighborhood will be released shortly. Please contact Randy G. Gibbs @ firstname.lastname@example.org (or your neighborhood representative) to make recommendations of local food businesses worthy of our support.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday, June 26th, for the Cash Mob Kick Off, and for the follow-on Cash Mob events!
