 EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES & PRESERVING CULTURE,

THROUGH  SOURCING LOCAL!

Inspiration Call To Action

We live in a generation where the term “local” is thrown around in such a loose fashion. When vacationing, we may eat at restaurants in the area and shop at stores around us in an attempt to sample a bit of the surrounding culture, only to feel what we received is tasteless, generic, and bland. Many times the food we are served has traveled farther then even ourselves. Let’s cut the miles out of our meal and taste the local culture.

Think Globally, Act Locally!

We help our users create & maintain healthy sustainable lifestyles by purchasing directly from businesses who either produce or source locally. After all the key to success is “keep growing” in every facet of life life – mental, emotional, spiritual, as well as physical.

For every $100 you spend at a business that sources locally 73% of that revenue is circulated back into the economy. These are dollars we have as a City to provide essentials like public safety, parks, clean neighborhoods and utilities that are important for each resident.

We at Eat Drink Local have a “Big Hairy Audacious Goal”, we believe in order to strengthen the economy as a whole it starts at the local level. Through this app users are able to publish & promote articles pertaining to living healthy and living local, businesses are able to extend their reach by having the information necessary to collaborate with other businesses, engage more customers, and increase sales. Our goal is to help capture and keep the dollar re-circulating locally.

Globalization has produced a new of level of interdependence among us. The economy and multinational supply chains do not abide by political boundaries. We want to help entrepreneurs in the community succeed in starting, maintaining, and growing their business. How? By creating this app to simplify & increase both awareness & commerce between local producers, businesses, and end consumers.

A Bit About Us

We are about empowering communities & preserving culture, through sourcing local! On our website and through our i OS application users are able to find, rate, sell, & purchase what‘s Locally Caught, Grown, Made. We are a  multi-vendor website & i OS application focused on featuring businesses who either produce or source locally. You may not know this but buying local isn’t just supporting your small businesses, but rather shopping at the businesses who choose to source locally. By definition we are a specialty broker,  but we choose to only promote locally sourced products. Our mission is to better the nations economy, through strengthening the local communities. How? By simplifying & increasing commerce between local producers, businesses, and end consumers.

What We Do

We want to help entrepreneurs succeed in starting, maintaining, and growing their business. In our efforts to do this we have developed a platform built around increasing engagement. Each segment of our digital platform has been constructed to promote a specific type of business. For retailers we have simplified the process of buying wholesale by creating a private/dedicated wholesale segment of the platform where businesses that are looking to source locally can find & purchase directly from local producers. And for those businesses looking to promote a certain special/event we developed a notification segment. The notification segment allows businesses to send a custom notification out to the users in their area and link that notification to their business, event, or special offer. We believe in order to strengthen the economy as a whole it starts at the local level, through our platform users are able to publish & promote articles pertaining to living healthy and living local, businesses are able to extend their reach by having the information necessary to collaborate with other businesses, engage more customers, and increase sales.  Our goal is to help capture and keep the dollar recirculating locally.

We believe in the 2 step process…

 

Dollar Retention

Every $100 you spend at a local business, $73 will be circulated back into the economy. On the other hand only $43 will stay in the local area for every $100 spent at a business not sourcing locally. The more dollars that circulate the better chance we have as a City to provide essentials like public safety, parks, clean neighborhoods and utilities that are important for each individual in our community. It truly is about understanding how and where we spend our hard earned dollars that will stimulate our economy and allow our community to prosper.

Dollar Expansion

Expanding the pool of dollars circulating within the community by focusing a significant amount of our marketing efforts towards the tourist market segment. This is where we are looking to work with the cities. We have many plans of reaching the tourist market and getting them into our local businesses. We feel it is a great idea to work with each city and build a unique persona around their local culture. Going back to the roots of our cities, and purchasing from our local producers is exactly what we need to do if we want to strengthen the economy.

Going back to the roots, is exactly what we need to do if we want to strengthen the economy. .
