The #GoLocal Movement
Celebrating Local Businesses & Events
We love to celebrate and support local businesses, individuals, and events as often as possible. That’s why we dedicate one day a week to what we call #goLocal Wednesday. It’s a day where we encourage our staff to go out and enjoy a restaurant, check out a shop, or attend an event. We share our #goLocal posts on Instagram and other social media sites.
Know a great place we should feature? Leave a comment on our social media pages with your recommendation!
We’ve recently started a series of fun partnerships with local restaurants and cafes called “FCB CollaborEATS”! For each collaboration, we join up with a locally-owned business to create a limited edition menu item. Then, for each menu item sold during the run we’ll make a donation to a local nonprofit. It’s what we like to call a #golocal win-win-win. You get to enjoy something delicious, Frederick businesses get to show off their skills, and a local nonprofit gets a sweet surprise.
Want to CollaborEAT? Contact the FCB Marketing Department 301-620-1400 or send us a message on social media.
