MACOMB IS OPEN
We all have a favorite restaurant; you know the one – where you feel like family when you walk in. Where your cup of coffee is sitting at your seat before you are, and you never have to look at the menu because you already know what you are going to order. These restaurants are in every corner of Macomb County. And it's the reason behind the  #MacombisOpen  initiative.
