Ocean Beach News Article: A message from Johnny Caito with OB Eats

A message from Johnny Caito with OB Eats

FREE Program for Restaurants See his message below... Along with running OB Eats, I also have a restaurant marketing company. I've put together a FREE curbside pickup program for local restaurants. We will run ads, deliver special offers, and promote pickup and delivery options. The only thing the restaurant would pay is the ad spend (can do as low as $5/day). Again...this is FREE! I'd like to help out as many places as I can. I live here, work here, and love OB, and I'll do whatever I can to help. If you know someone that owns, manages, or is in the restaurant space here in OB, PL, or surrounding areas, will you please share this link with them or have them reach out.
