We have some exciting promotions for seafood lovers, including salmon bite specials and our popular Junior Combo, which includes a crab cluster, shrimp, sausage, corn, egg, and potato. Come see us at the Village at Sandhills; it’s going to be a great week.”

Gayle Bradley, owner and chef of Just A Touch, celebrated the restaurant’s one-year anniversary last week. They will continue their anniversary promotion by offering discounts of 10% and more (up to a free meal immediately) for customers who choose to spin the wheel. Customers will also have a chance to win free treats like pound cake and peach cobbler (family-sized, not individual portions!) “Black Eats Week 803 gives us the opportunity to give back as much as we receive. We are big on service,” said Gayle Bradley. “We have had a very successful first year, and this week gives people who may not have learned about us yet an opportunity to learn about our menu and specials. Come by and spin the wheel!”

Details of the week will be exclusively offered on the FREE Soda City Certified app and the Black Eats Week 803 website. Customers will have a chance to win cash prizes for patronizing these restaurants and participating in the BINGO board game.
