Meatballs of Jessup is NOW OPEN!

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Meatballs, Etc. is open and the meatballs are prepped! From friends & family events and hiring open houses to social media contests and community involvement, we love giving back to our local neighborhood! Check out some of the fun things Meatballs, Etc. did in Howard County to celebrate our opening.

Hiring Open Houses

Prior to opening we held multiple Hiring Open Houses. We posted each event on Facebook and Craigslist to hire all restaurant positions and went LIVE on Facebook. A table was set up in the front of the restaurant with applications and we held on the spot interviews to help fill open positions with awesome team members.

Social Media Contests 

Our Meatballs, Etc. Facebook page hosted social media contests for the first few weeks awarding winners gift cards. Our contests ranged from guessing the number of meatballs sold/ given away within the first week to a photo contest where guests had the chance to show off their photo skills. Each winner will receive a gift card for participating!

Free Meatballs

The first three days of our soft opening we gave away meatballs to anyone who stopped by and mentioned the post on Facebook! We posted the promotion on social media and handed out a variety of their tasty meatballs in the first few days!

Friends & Family Events

At Meatballs, Etc., we hosted Friends & Family events the week between Christmas and New Years! Both events were fun-filled as guests enjoyed a custom Snapchat filter, Instagram frame, Meatballs, Etc. stickers and a variety of delicious Italian specialties!

Now that we are open to the public, fundraisers and donations have begun! Meatballs hosts' community fundraisers where a portion of the profits is donated back to the organization. From Girl Scout troupes and schools to churches and community functions; Meatballs is the perfect place to host a fundraiser for all types of local groups! Head over to Our Community Page to fill out a Fundraising Inquiry Form today.

In the next few weeks, Meatballs, Etc. of Jessup will be holding a formal grand opening celebration. Hours of operation are Sun-Thurs 11am-9:30pm and Fri/Sat 11am-10pm. We are located in the Columbia East Shopping Center at 7351 Assateague Drive, Suite 100 Jessup, MD 20794. To reach the store directly, call (410) 904-5626.
