Macomb is Open Campaign


Whether you want to snag something on #TakeoutTuesday, enjoy your traditional Friday night treat or find something delicious any other day of the week, there are so many Macomb County food and beverage establishments with great offerings. From north to south and east to west there are hundreds of diners, coffee shops, breweries, wineries, bakeries, and ice cream parlors to choose from. And by picking some place local, you’re not only getting to savor something amazing, you’re investing in the communities many of us live, work and play in. 

In an effort to promote the many purveyors of food and beverages throughout the county, the restaurant edition of the Macomb Is Open campaign has been launched. Participating is easy and offers the chance for you to help your favorite haunts while snagging something great for yourself. 

Between Wednesday, May 20 and Sunday, May 31, enjoy a food and/or beverage from somewhere offering carryout, curbside or delivery service, take a photo, submit it here and share it on social with the hashtag #MacombIsOpen and you’ll be entered to win a $50 gift card and the establishment will have the chance to win a $1,000 grant! 

The Macomb Is Open restaurant edition is presented by Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union. Through its generous support, funds have been matched and a total of $20,000 is now available to local consumers and businesses! 

All approved submissions will be entered into the drawing. Twenty lucky establishments and patrons will be drawn live via Facebook on Monday, June 1 at noon. Please note that each establishment and patron can only win one gift card and grant each. 

Please stay safe - wear a mask - and follow all safe social distancing procedures.
