Loyal to Local is a grassroots movement designed to make supporting local fun again.

Cedar Rapids has been through a lot this year, and businesses are feeling the impacts. That’s why we have started a movement to raise awareness and help people embrace all of the good things in Cedar Rapids.


For example, did you know you can rent snow shoes from SOKO Outfitters, or get bottomless Bloody Marys at Jimmy Z’s?


There are hundreds of gems like this waiting to be discovered, and we want to bring them to you.

How does deetz fit into this?

deetz is a free app that connects you to all the daily happenings in the Cedar Rapids area, from restaurant specials, to events, to things to do with the family, and more.


Everything on our interactive map expires in 24 hours, so you know you will always be seeing the most fresh, relevant information.


We’re using deetz to call out all the amazing local finds around Cedar Rapids, so that you can be Loyal to Local and have fun doing so!

Over 105+ businesses have already joined the movement!
