Car Con Carne restaurant sponsorships are a fun way to market your business’s menu!

Car Con Carne records at a new restaurant each week. Here’s how it works:

  • The podcast meets that week’s guest at the featured restaurant
  • We take our food to-go
  • We eat and talk about the food as we do an interview in the parked car
  • In addition to the meal being discussed on the podcast episode, it’s also shared visually on the show’s Facebook and YouTube videos.

There is no dollar amount attached to this sponsorship; it’s a straight food-for-promotion transaction.

The cool thing about a podcast is it’s evergreen… meaning once it’s up, it’s not going anywhere, and can always be used as a marketing tool.
