Rewards Network, a provider of financing, marketing, and loyalty services to the restaurant industry, announced its first “Restaurant Resilient $50K Giveaway.” The company will award $10,000 to five restaurants each to help support them during the winter months.

To enter the contest, restaurants will have to complete a short survey by December 4. Submissions will be primarily judged on 150-word maximum responses to the following questions within the survey:

1) What do you think your restaurant means to your community?

2) How would you use the $10,000?

An internal committee of Rewards Network employees will review submissions, with the final winner selection decided by three employees from a cross-section of Rewards Network’s marketing, sales, and operations teams, all of whom are highly qualified professionals dedicated to local restaurant marketing and finance. The committee will choose and notify the winners on December 18 and will be announced publicly in January 2021.

“Restaurant owners have shown us the power of resilience and will likely face a rough road ahead for the next few months,” says Linda Bartman, CMO at Rewards Network. “We’re excited to launch this giveaway as an opportunity for us to be able to provide some financial support to the winning restaurants during the potentially tough winter months.”
