In challenging times, we rely on friends. Be the reason that restaurants survive.

Lingering pandemic effects threaten the existence of our favorite restaurants. Thousands have already closed their doors for good. Through #RestaurantChallenge by the Certified Angus Beef ® brand, small actions compounded just might be what helps these local business survive and create some of that good news we’ve all been craving.


There’s lots of ways to get involved in this challenge. What’s most important is that we support our favorite restaurants. Pick what works best for you.

  1. Support a local restaurant by ordering carryout, delivery, dining in (where possible) or purchasing gift cards.
  2. Share something good: other ways to participate include: tipping big, posting a five-star review or leaving a kind note showing you care on your receipt.
  3. Post a photo of your meal and enter to win (or favorite restaurant memory) on Facebook or Instagram using #RestaurantChallenge. You’ll be entered to win a $100 visa gift card to dine out again.
  4. Tag your favorite restaurant in the post and enter them to win. They’ll be entered to win $2,500 in support for their staff. (that’s a big tip!)
