It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has been extremely difficult on restaurants all over the world. Restaurants everywhere have had to be resilient and find creative new ways to keep the lights on. That’s why all of us at Second Sol Studios knew it was not only a priority but a necessity to do what we could to give back to the restaurant industry. So, we decided to launch a production package giveaway designed to help give one local restaurant the kickstart they deserve to come out of this pandemic better than ever!
The package consists of an in-depth content creation strategy and execution that all together, totals $10,000 grand prize!
Fresh photos are a must for online success, especially with to-go and curbside pick-up taking control during lockdowns. With the help of one of the top food photographers in the area, we will snap photos of our winners top entrees and craft cocktails. The photos will be great for virtual menus, social media, publications, and their website.
The uses of video are endless! We will tell the story of how they started, show off their top dishes, introduce their staff and owners, while showing you why their restaurant is not only THE place to go but a staple of our city. They will be able to display the video on their website, slice it up to be used on social media as smaller clips, and use it for a number of other promotional aspects.
Digital Ad Strategy
We will work with their team to review their web presence and create a custom content marketing plan for their digital presence. This will give them a roadmap of how to utilize the photo and video content created to build brand awareness, tell their story, and increase foot traffic into their restaurant.
Over the past two months, Second Sol has gone on an extensive search to find our winning restaurant, and through our journey, we have had the privilege of meeting with a number of amazing owners who were more than deserving of this package. It was extremely difficult to come to a final decision but ultimately, we were able to choose a winner. Today, we am thrilled to announce that Safety Harbor’s very own Gigglewaters is the winner of our $10,000 production package giveaway!
Gigglewaters is a speakeasy inspired restaurant, bar, social club, and screening room that’s fun for all ages! Founded by Richie Wilson and Rachel Fine, two Brooklyn natives who brought a new and unique concept to the Tampa Bay area. These resilient owners didn’t let the pandemic stop them from feeding their community. They provided meals to a number of local families, shelters, and first responders, while providing families in need the unique opportunity to attend private screenings in their restaurant’s quaint theatre. They have their eyes set on expanding, and we are excited to help them accomplish this goal! We are happy to say that we’re helping a restaurant that has been able to help so many others.
We want to give a big thank you to all the restaurants that applied for this giveaway and we still want to do what we can to help all of those in the industry. Through the next few months, Second Sol Studios will be providing discounted rates to all local restaurants and will continue to do what we can to give back to our community.
