    Re-Imagined Taste of GRCC Concludes as a Huge Success
     
    From June 23rd-July 21st, Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) hosted their re-imagined Taste of GRCC event. In a world without a pandemic, this event would have been hosted in person on June 23rd with 300+ attendees during our June Monthly Membership Luncheon. This year, GRCC wanted to ensure their food & beverage members were recognized as they are every year during this time. GRCC also wanted to engage the entire community no matter if they felt comfortable dining in, doing takeout, or ordering delivery. Participants were asked to take a picture of their purchase and post it on the Taste of GRCC Facebook group and/or leave a positive new Google Review for the establishment they visited. Each post or Google Review they submitted resulted in one (1) entry into the drawings.
     
    The goal of this re-imagined Taste of GRCC was to ensure their food & beverage establishments had the opportunity to increase their community exposure and social media engagement. During challenging times like these, this event brought everyone together virtually to celebrate their love for food. During the month-long event, GRCC had over 700 people join the Taste of GRCC Facebook group and over 400 posts supporting the food & beverage establishments. There were over 1,300 Google Reviews accumulated from all of the establishments on the Taste of GRCC list. There was a total of 71 food & beverage establishments supported through this re-imagined event, 5 of which joined the GRCC solely because of this re-imagined event!
