ASU business students to host 'cash mob' for restaurant

ALBANY, Ga. — The Albany State University College of Business Marketing Club and Enactus have planned a "cash mob" to provide an economic stimulus for a local business in downtown Albany.

The students' goal is to make a positive impact on a local business by helping promote its growth. The cash mob will be held at Our Daily Bread, located at 106 North Washington St., at noon today. The restaurant is owned by Jason and Mendy Warren.

The students and their advisor, Maurice Elliard, an ASU professor of marketing, are expecting at least 100 patrons to spend at least $10 each for lunch.

"After learning of the number of restaurants that had closed in downtown Albany, we were inspired to do something to help at least one of the remaining restaurants. The members of the Marketing Club thought that a cash mob was a great way to help our stakeholders, and they are partnering with Enactus to make the event a success," said Elliard.

This is a very pleasant place that more people should discover. Also, they are the drop-off point for deliveries from White Oak Pastures, if you want to subscribe to organic produce and meats.

He ain't ashamed, he's scared. He owes the dope man money and now he ain't got no way to pay him back.

This is an excellent idea - kudos to the ASU Marketing Club for coming up with such a great idea for one of our local businesses. While this is an awesome thing to do for this business today, what they really need is ongoing regular business. Hopefully, the people from ASU will continue to support this business and others. Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to go downtown to eat lunch. I don't have enough time on a 30-minute lunch break and am too far away.
