Letter to Interested Restaurants

East Penn Area Restaurant Week March 5th – 11th 2017

Dear Restaurant Owner,

The East Penn Chamber of Commerce and Emmaus Main Street Partners would like to cordially invite you to participate in the first ever East Penn Area Restaurant Week, taking place from March 5th – 11th 2017.

As you may know Restaurant Week is a very popular concept throughout the Nation and the Lehigh Valley. With cities and regions in the Lehigh Valley seeing tremendous success with their Restaurant Weeks, the East Penn Chamber of Commerce and Emmaus Main Street Partners thought it was time to bring one to the East Penn Area.  This event invites residents of our area as well as visitors from neighboring towns to experience the variety of dining options we have in our footprint.  The goal of the event is to create awareness of East Penn Area restaurants, and introduce new customers to those establishments.

Participating Restaurant Week locations create “set-price” or “prix fixe” menus, offering a choice of appetizers, entrees, and deserts at promotional prices. Restaurants can participate by providing offerings for lunch and/or dinner. Each location will also contribute 2 gift certificates toward the East Penn Restaurant Week campaign for promotion and giveaways.  The East Penn Chamber of Commerce and Emmaus Main Street Partners will promote this event through a variety of social media outlets, radio mentions, newspaper (print and online) and billboard advertising. Chamber Members are invited to participate for just $60! (Future Chamber members may participate for $120)

Restaurant Weeks in neighboring regions have been recorded to bring in more than 10,000 people to participating restaurants! Some restaurant owners shared that they had seen a 30%-40% increase in sales, and 70%-90% of customers were ordering off of Restaurant Week menus! We hope to see similar numbers as we bring Restaurant Week to our area. We are proud of the diverse dining options that make East Penn a unique region for people of the Lehigh Valley to explore new cuisine in a variety of atmospheres.  We hope that you will consider joining us as we encourage diners to “Eat Up” in East Penn!

We understand that March is rapidly approaching! Please contact Meghan Reed via email at meghanr@lehighvalleychamber.org or call 610.739.1273 to find out how to participate.

Thank you,

Meghan Reed
