Objective:
CSSI Marketing + Culinary, a Marlin Network agency, has teamed up with the Greater Chatham Initiative and FoodLab Chicago to help restaurant owners on the South side of Chicago achieve continued growth and success. CSSI is hosting several educational sessions to share our team’s marketing and culinary expertise with Greater Chatham business owners. We are also developing online informational modules and providing one-on-one coaching and menu innovation. ​

The purpose of these efforts is to address the liquidity crisis, minimize job loss, reduce the financial impact on Black communities, and mitigate the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants so far have reported huge benefits in increased revenue or cost savings, receiving one-one-one support, and extensive networking opportunities.
