On top of that Jocelyn Wing, Digital Marketing Specialist at Optimize Media Marketing, saw the need for a website specifically for the Eugene and Springfield area restaurants when she saw the list of restaurants provided by the Eugene Chamber of Commerce posted on the group page. She then worked to create a website that works as a directory for restaurants that are open for online and phone call ordering. This includes curbside pick up and delivery through Doordash, Grubhub and personal delivery from the restaurants themselves.

The website allows the ability to either search for restaurants or choose by category, with now over three hundred restaurants to pick from. The goal of the website is to not only help local and franchised businesses around Eugene, but also give households the sense of tradition and togetherness back into their lives during the time of the pandemic.
