Restaurant receipts can win diners $25 gift cards

City of Romulus employees have taken some exceptional steps to help local restaurants survive the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Employees have funded a new contest, organized by the Community Development Department which will reward local restaurant patrons for dining out.  Mayor LeRoy Burcroff recently explained that residents who spend $50 or more at any local restaurants will be entered in a drawing to win a $25 gift card. Those cards have been funded by city employees, he said. 

“In Romulus, we are lucky to be home to a number of exceptional local restaurants. Many of their owners are neighbors and friends to us all. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every industry, but it has been especially difficult for many restaurants as work diligently to stay afloat.

To keep our local economy strong and vibrant, it's important to support the local businesses in our community as much we can,” Burcroff posted on the city Facebook page.

To enter, diners can simply email photos of their receipts from local restaurants to along with contact information. Winners of the gift cards will be announced March 1.
