ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — #407 Day, a day that focuses on showing support for local restaurants and their employees in Central Florida, is returning this year.
The campaign is inspired by the Orange County’s long time area code and encourages residents to dine-in or order takeout/delivery from their favorite local restaurants.
To participate, all you have to do is post your recommendations, experiences and photos on social media using the hashtag “#407Day.”
“Our restaurant community has always represented a vital part of who we are as a region,” said Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings. “This year, we are proud to continue to show our support for our restaurants through ‘#407 Day.’ Although it has been challenging, we are resilient and we continue to always have a neighbors helping neighbors philosophy. I encourage our residents to enjoy the time out or order takeout or delivery.”
Local restaurants make up 57% of the vital hospitality industry in Central Florida.
Last year, nearly 300 Orange County area restaurants participated.
