About Us

For decades, hardworking, local business owners have struggled to compete with larger, publicly-owned chains. Cherish Local was formed in 2016 to help give small, local businesses, a leg up. The owner, Marty Carry, left corporate America in April of 2016 after working in the Advertising & Online Marketing industry for 23 years.

To further his passion for helping local business owners, he hired on a team of equally local-driven individuals. With their combined talents (& excessive amounts of caffeine) they have been able to launch their clients into new realms of success and continue to expand as well. Cherish Local is known for providing customized programs based on the most critical online marketing tactics needed for each business, no matter the size.
