TOMS RIVER, NJ – Tony Rivoli, owner of Riv’s Toms River Hub was just getting his new business on its feet and building momentum when COVID-19 struck and now, he’s doing his best to keep the community fed with his new collection of bar and restaurant fare, with sprinkles of some of his signatures dishes from his former restaurant, Rivoli’s sprinkled in.
“We can’t wait to see everybody, we miss everyone and I’m humbled from the bottom of my heart that you support my family,” Rivoli said. “Thank you Toms River.”
Support the Shore was started by Wingman Planning CEO Tom Mirabella whose company is a full-service marketing firm located in Manasquan to offer free video services to help local businesses get the word out about their status to the public. In return for the video, Wingman Planning asks that those businesses make a small donation to local fire, police, EMS or frontline emergency workers.
“The pandemic hit, and our full-service marketing agency moved from working as a team of 12 in Manasquan to working from home,” Mirabella said. “I didn’t want to furlough or let anyone go, even though our clients have been impacted which in turn impacts us. I was watching companies all around us struggle and turn to layoffs and realized that we could help these businesses spread the word about what services they were offering to their customers.”
