The Osterfeld Agency is dedicated to helping our partners in the restaurant and general business industry during this difficult time. As such, our team has spent the last 48 hours around the clock working to build a robust listing platform for businesses to present information to potential consumers about new business hours, pick-up, delivery options and more, that aren’t readily available in a single place currently. That can be found at open4bizLA.com.
The global Covid-19 pandemic has and will continue to impact our citizens and our business community. Rapidly changing circumstances are affecting people’s ability to secure food and other resources, or to even know which businesses are open and have product available. As a member of the Louisiana Restaurant Association, The Osterfeld Agency has created this internet-based portal through which businesses can easily update to keep the public aware of their resources and abilities. This website will provide the most current information coming directly from businesses to inform the public about their hours of operation, services offered and special services designed to assist during this difficult period. (Information needs to be verified and is subject to change in the fluid situation. We are not liable for incorrect information.)
We are also offering a free 2-month subscription to our proprietary software platform, Zapp Guru (zapp.guru), to all Louisiana restaurants who need to update their menus and publish them across the web during a time where most people will be making dining decisions based on online listed menus.
Finally, we are also offering social media advice and messaging to local business owners who need help with communications through our main agency. The Osterfeld Agency has partnered with Ellie Rand Public Relations to offer pro bono PR assistance to restaurants over the next 2 weeks on a first come first-served basis.
“I am extremely proud to be able to help our restaurant and business partners in what is going to be a difficult few weeks. We are here at your service. And I believe we will all come out on the other side strong, together”. Said Michael Osterfeld, President of The Osterfeld Agency.
The Osterfeld Agency would like to thank Patrick Gros, Wendy Warren, and Sarah Peltier at the LRA and Kristian Sonnier of New Orleans & Company (formerly the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau), for their assistance throughout the last few days.
