Why work with Gastronomic SLC?

Broad reach

Gastronomic Salt Lake City reaches Utahns across a diverse set of channels. Here on the website, we serve up tens of thousands of pages every month. Other publications might quote higher numbers, but do you know what their readers are looking for and reading on their site? We do.

We write about nothing but the food and beverage scene – every reader that hits our site is exceptionally targeted and searching for one thing: local food and drink info.

Professional and respected journalism

We’ve been at this for more than sixteen years winning critical awards along the way. Search for us on platforms like Google News, Newsbreak, and Facebook News. You’ll find our stories right there alongside other respected publications.

Responsive and persistent

Using our social media channels and website we can help you tell a story in as timely a fashion as you want. Have something special happening right now? Print media has lead times that prevent them from supporting businesses in an ultra-time-specific fashion. Moreover, our content is persistent. A story we publish today might be read for months and years down the line. That’s in stark contrast to radio, TV, or print that’s a one-time shot at grabbing a potential customer’s attention.

Support local

Many businesses sing the virtues of supporting local, we think this applies to the media too, a business like any other. By supporting a strong, local press, you’re helping to grow local business. We actively write about independent restaurants first and foremost. Without a strong independent platform with engaged readers, no one will be telling the story of the food scene in Utah.

Gastronomic Salt Lake City talks about one thing, and one thing only: the local food scene. Our website traffic is completely driven by people wanting to explore food and drink in Utah, locals and travelers alike.

In 2023 we saw 1,500,000 page views on Gastronomic SLC.

Compare our site and traffic to other local media that has a mixed message; are the traffic and reader numbers being quoted by other publications all related to the food scene? Can the publication tell you what percentage of their reader’s content consumption is related to food? We can – 100%.
