Business Profiles

Participation is $295 for a half-page print and online Profile. This is a one-time charge to be included in the print edition.

This price includes a half-page profile featuring: a 200 word bio/history/ description of the business, two images (photo, logo, etc.), and restaurant information (location, hours of operation, etc.). This also includes a web-based profile from the Restaurant and Visitor's Guide website, with a link to the business’ website. Upon publication, all profiles will be searchable by business name and category.

Each business owner creates their own profile online which is then designed for the print publication. We are available to help with the writing or creation of the profile at any stage of the process.
