Pretty interesting campaign, I like the civic engagement aspect of it. Everyone should take a “Steak” in America’s future! VOTE!
Talk of the Town Restaurant’s Wants Everyone to Take a Steak in America
Charley’s Steak House and Texas Cattle Company, two restaurant concepts of the Central Florida based Talk of the Town Restaurant Group, launched a $50,000 campaign on Monday, October 25th. On Monday, Nov. 1, and Tuesday, Nov. 2, restaurant employees will be at several intersections in Orlando, St. Petersburg, Lakeland, Tampa, Celebration and Lake Mary with “Take a Steak in America” picket signs to encourage people to vote on Nov. 2. The campaign is being personally funded by Ron Woodsby, President and Owner of Talk of the Town Restaurant Group.
The campaign will include five electronic billboards placed in high traffic areas in Tampa and Orlando, extensive signage placed outside of six restaurant locations throughout Central Florida, and a social media blitz. In addition, Charley’s and Texas Cattle Company employees will thank voters for taking the time to vote by handing out “America’s at Steak – I Voted” bumper stickers at various polling locations in Orange, Seminole, Polk and Hillsborough counties on election day. Through these measures, President Ron Woodsby hopes to inspire people to take part in the democratic process.
Ron Woodsby, owner of Talk of the Town Restaurant Group states, “You can make a difference! Without your vote, your children’s future & America is at stake. Many people have shed their lives in order to give you the opportunity to vote. We more than ever need to act on that opportunity. Make yourself be heard! Let the politicians know we are definitely not happy with the way things are going right now. Vote November 2nd.”
