Coogan’s, a local Washington Heights spot in NYC, was a pillar in the community for years. Now, Peter Walsh (the owner) is working with Facebook to share his story, leave a legacy, and help support other businesses in Washington Heights so they don’t close up for good. 

Facebook’s Support Small Business campaign from Droga5 New York includes varied elements, including a Small Business Hub created to empower users to find, connect, and shop at local shops and restaurants that need their support the most. These destinations are an incredible resource for folks looking for ways to support small businesses, and stay connected with their local shops.

The campaign shows people that, when we buy small, we buy into what makes our communities, communities. We’re buying into a person. Into family owned and operated for generations. Into a farming community. Into the dreams of an immigrant family starting anew. The aim of this platform is to show Facebook’s commitment to small businesses and motivate people to join in by connecting them to Facebook resources, telling real stories of small businesses and giving them the social and IRL tools to share their commitment. 

Film, OOH and audio highlight multiple small businesses around America that are too beloved to let go. Businesses like Coogan’s in NY, Som’s Records in Washington, D.C. and Dulan’s Soul Food Kitchen in Inglewood, Calif. 

The campaign’s hero film, Survive, centers around recently closed Coogan’s, a place that was legendary to the people of Washington Heights. Survive was directed by Miles Jay of production house SMUGGLER
