Cox Media Offers Local Restaurants Free Ads During COVID-19 Crisis
Cox Media, the advertising division of Cox Communications, is offering local restaurants free television advertising to assure patrons that they remain open for takeout and delivery services and share new hours of operation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hundreds of restaurants are already taking advantage of this offer in Cox markets nationwide, with presence in ads similar to this one from Pensacola that is running today. Restaurant groups, such as the Arizona Restaurant Association, are also using this opportunity to launch and promote creative Take Out campaigns that benefit the broader food community.
To take advantage of the Cox Media offer, restaurant owners should email [email protected] and include the name and location of their establishment.
Cox is also joining with other Internet & Television Association (NCTA) members to provide $100 million in public service advertising through June to help educate consumers on the pandemic and prevent the spread of the virus.
Previously announced Cox support for the pandemic includes temporarily increasing customer internet speeds and lowering prices on entry tiers, suspending data usage overage fees and offering 60 days free broadband for low-income students who aren't already connected via Cox's Connect2Compete program.
