Naples Originals is a group of independent locally-owned and operated restaurants who band together to protect, nurture and promote independent restaurants in Collier County.  We share a commitment to our community and a passion for excellence in food and service.

We brand our independent restaurants as a group and educate our community about our strengths through an active marketing program so that we can compete against larger corporations with significant marketing budgets.  Not only do we work to educate our community about our independent restaurants, but we also give back to the community through our charitable contributions.

As a group we have purchasing power, and vendors listen!
