Inspired by the growth in Carrollton eight years ago and with a passion for sharing news, Jonathan Dockery began The Carrollton Menu on the night of Halloween 2011.
Jonathan explains, “At first, The Carrollton Menu was simply a hobby for me to share a menu for openings and closings in the area. Without hesitation, my hobby became the focal point for a change in my career.” His love for reporting traffic around the southeast on several radio stations was replaced with reporting positive things happening in our local communities.
Through the support of readership and partnerships, the company rebranded as The City Menus to embrace other, nearby communities. The company is self-assured in its approach to showcasing local businesses and highlighting community connection with a positive, human-interest focus. “Our team recognizes the importance of small business, and each of us has become an advocate for the success of local merchants and service providers. We know there is value in every story, and we want to express that with every article we write,” said Jonathan.
Most recently, The City Menus launched a new mobile app which is available on Apple Store and Google Play. The company shares news exclusively through digital platforms including its website and app, social media, and e-newsletter.
