Work with us on a paid ongoing basis
Utah diners, business travelers and tourists are searching every single day for dining information. Using our targeted listings and news output, we can prominently promote your business to qualified diners immediately. Do you rock breakfast like no one else? Are your burgers the bomb? Should you be the first and last destination in your neighborhood?
We know that you’re inundated by different offers to grow your business. Local influencers, national websites, press, SEO and PR companies; we know how many companies are chasing your limited marketing dollars. We like to think we’re a little different, here’s why.
Why work with Gastronomic SLC?
Gastronomic Salt Lake City reaches Utahns across a diverse set of channels. Here on the website we serve up tens of thousands of pages each and every month. Other publications might quote higher numbers, but do you know what their readers are actually 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 fifteen years winning critical awards along the way. Search for us in Google News and Facebook News, you’ll find our stories right there alongside other respected publications. Search for other blogs and influencers – do you see them in Google News?
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.
On social media we’re active on three major platforms: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. On each of those platforms we have a strong following. You might find an Instagram user with more followers, but ask yourself, who are those followers? Are they local Utahns, are they real? Moreover, how engaged is that personality on other platforms? Will they be here in a years time, what about five? We’ve been here for 15+ years.
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. This leaves fragmented and non local platforms such as Facebook and Yelp to tell your story.
So what do we do?
By partnering with us your business will be listed across our highly targeted best of pages, e.g. best lunch in SLC, best sushi, best downtown restaurant. We will also list you on our best restaurants page. We will also ensure any and all news you have, goes our in our regular editorial output. Got a menu update, a new chef, a special event or dish? Just drop us your info and we can integrate your news. We reach thousands of people every single day.
These items together generate qualified visitors to your website on a daily basis. This is measurable traffic that you can assign a ROI. Our goal is to beat typical Cost Per Click platform costs of multiple dollars per click. We’re certain you will find the CPC results of partnering with us the lowest in Utah.
As a Sponsor we remove the monthly posting limit for your business in our Facebook food discussion group. Our group is home to 1000s of serious foodies. Finally, we cover your restaurant on our social media channels from time to time. The net effect is broad and persistent coverage of your business, month in, month out.

Gastronomic SLC is a great asset for Northern Utah. With rapidly changing demographics and the ever-growing variety of excellent food and drink options in the Salt Lake area, it can be hard to keep up – even when you’re in the industry. Not only is Gastronomic a pretty comprehensive reference for the local culinary landscape, they’re also super responsive to news like restaurant openings and special dinners.
