Captain Porky’s is a Seafood and BBQ restaurant located in Gurnee, IL, that was established in 1984! Owner, Notah Kallianis, first signed up for CloseBy® Text Marketing in February 2013, and has built her text list to 1,001 subscribers!

Before utilizing CloseBy® Text Marketing, the team at Captain Porky’s struggled to reach demographics that weren’t active on social media. Thanks for CloseBy® they were able to reach more customers, faster and more efficiently, with the direct line of communication the program provides.

Hear from Noah Kallianis about how CloseBy® Text Marketing has helped her business:

“We ALWAYS get a great response when sending texts. People are always coming in saying they receive the message. We mostly do informational messages about our specials and people love being up to date. It is also helpful to get additional catering orders and create some additional revenue. For example, we sent a text about orders about catering orders for the Super Bowl and our phones were ringing off the hook! I talk with my CloseBy® Text Marketing Manager about once a week and discuss messages, message ideas for the future, promoting, etc. I have established a great relationship with my Account Manager and I love that I can depend on her. It makes life easier when you’re running a business. We are so happy with CloseBy® Text Marketing and I know others would be too!”
