(RestaurantNews.com) Jason’s Deli expands its community involvement efforts online by creating a national partnership with restaurant fundraising platform www.GroupRaise.com. Today, restaurants are searching for the best ways to enchant their local community, grow their brand, and bring in sales. In our current economic times, opening a restaurant’s doors to local schools, teams, and other community groups for dine and donate programs is a great way to engage local community. Jason’s Deli with the help of GroupRaise.com is taking leadership in this kind of outreach.
Restaurant fundraising has proven to be a much better option than coupons to bring in local customers because coupons run the risk of damaging restaurants’ brands. Fundraising customers are excited about paying full menu price for food, and are more likely to return than deal seekers from sites like Groupon. Recently named “Best Family Restaurant Chain” by Parents Magazine, Jason’s Deli has found a new way to take their restaurant fundraising to the next level with the use of online restaurant fundraising platform GroupRaise.com.
GroupRaise.com is a fundraising community of local non-profit groups looking to host fundraisers at local restaurants for a percentage of the sales. Jason’s Deli is using the site to post their restaurant fundraising program online along with specific days and times for groups to request events at over 100 corporate locations in 11 states. For Jason’s Deli, tapping into GroupRaise.com’s network makes their restaurants more accessible to the local community and is a huge time saver for local managers when it comes to orchestrating, planning, and tracking the success of fundraising events. GroupRaise’s goal is to be a great business partner in building authentic, sustainable community outreach for its restaurant partners.
