As many restaurants struggle to keep their doors open during these unprecedented economic times, one Salt Lake City-based business is helping spread the love. 

Creminelli Fine Meats is giving back to the Salt Lake City foodie community by introducing the For the Love of Food gift card giveback initiative. The company is values-guided and known for transforming authentic charcuterie into fresh, clean label, protein snacks.

“So many of our friends in the restaurant industry are facing challenging times. We hope is to provide support to some of our favorite restaurants that have made an impact on us and contribute so much to our community,” said Chris Bowler, co-founder and CEO of Creminelli Fine Meats. “This is a simple way to say thanks to the restaurants, their employees, and our fellow foodies.” 

Creminelli purchased 100 $100 gift cards to 10 Salt Lake City restaurants, including Pizza Nono, Feldman’s Deli, Spice Kitchen, Tony Caputo’s Market & Deli, Carmine’s, Bento Truck, SLC Eatery, Honest Eatery, Freshies and Les Madeleines

“For all they’ve done for us, we want to do something for them,” said Bowler. “We’ve purchased gift cards from restaurants that have made a lasting impression on us, starting right here in our backyard.”
