Being a good neighbor to a local theater group can be a great way to become locally relevant. Offer catered service for the rehearsals or performances at your local theater group(s). These could range from bigger productions at the town’s major playhouse to the shows presented at the community center.


If the arts and cultural event match the type of company you are and/or the culture of your business, local theater groups are typically always in need and always grateful for support. Also, consider groups that your employees may be involved in.

If your customers are local theater-goers, this can be a great way to build awareness of your company. Often by offering financial – or in this case, food – support, you may be able to get publicity or credits towards advertising in the show’s program.
