The Bears have announced the four winners of the Small Business All-Pros Gameday Eats edition presented by Visa: Moody's Pub (Sept. 19-Oct. 12), Cocoa Chili (Oct. 13-Nov. 16), Peppo's Subs (Nov. 17-Dec. 14) and Cleo's Southern Cuisine (Dec. 15-Jan. 9).
Each restaurant will receive four weeks of a Bears marketing partnership including placement on the team's official social media channels, ChicagoBears.com and within email newsletters, along with in-stadium promotions.
Located in the Edgewater neighborhood at 5910 N. Broadway St., Moody's Pub has an extensive outdoor patio and 'Bear Garden.' For the 52nd consecutive year, Moody's is serving al fresco in its bi-level, three-garden outdoor patio with 14 maple trees, ivy-covered walls and flower boxes. On gamedays, Moody's will serve the Monster Bears Burger (a half-pound ground chuck burger charcoal grilled with extra cheddar, bacon and mushrooms that comes with fries, pickle, lettuce, onion and tomato).
This marks the second year of the Bears Small Business All-Pros initiative. In 2020, 10 Small Business All-Pros winners brought to you by Proven IT were selected. Principle Barbers received a marketing partnership throughout the 2020 season, as well as a technology assessment provided by Proven IT; nine additional Small Business All-Pros received digital and social marketing exposure through Bears assets during a week in the season, including 4P Industrial Cleaning Corporation, Barbee Tax Consulting, LLC, Bark Bark Club, Boco Services, Inc., Colfax Corporation, Jus Sandwiches, Lillstreet Art Center, Small World Bar & Grill and Thalia Hall.
In addition to supporting the Chicago Bears 2021 Small Business All-Pros Gameday Eats initiative, Visa has directed resources to small businesses through a number of its own programs, tailored to fit the needs of local communities since the start of the pandemic. Visa has committed more than $1 million in hyperlocal grants, many to minority SMB owners in disproportionately impacted U.S. cities, including Chicago.
