Send Your Love Letters To Asian-Owned Restaurants With Stage 13

Have you been missing your favorite Asian restaurants while staying indoors? Do you want to help Asian-owned businesses get through the pandemic?

Look no further, because Stage 13—an award-winning studio under Warner Bros. Digital Networks—is helping you do both. Known for spotlighting local angles on national stories of interests, Stage 13 has been successful with “Family Style,” an online show produced by Asian-centric channel YOMYOMF, which features a group of food enthusiasts and different celebrities enjoying Asian goodies around a table. With the digital campaign #stage13supports, the studio wants to boost to-go orders from Asian restaurants and encourage viewers to share their own family style meals.

The project provides timely assistance for restaurants who have had to navigate the uncharted territory. “Life has completely changed for us at Bopomofo as we try to stay afloat during this time, launching new initiatives and protocols,” said Phil Wang, the co-founder of Bopomofo Café, in a press statement. “Thanks to Stage 13 for using their platform to support small businesses, especially Asian-owned ones!”

Shari Scorca, VP of unscripted content at Stage 13, said, “We want these restaurants and culture to continue to thrive and stay open during such extreme circumstances. We hope that people will use ‘Family Style’ as a guide to Asian foods or cuisines they have not yet tried and that fans join the community to share stories and words of encouragement as well.”

Restaurants from across Southern California and Hawaii have already been given shout-outs on the series, which first premiered in May 2019. With #stage13supports already up and running as of April 13, the next time you consider dinner options, you might want to consult the “Foodie Fam.’”
