The next generation of media in WNY

Our Mission

Step Out Buffalo strives to promote local business and inspire people to eat, drink, breathe, work, play, explore and enjoy Buffalo & Western New York.

Step Out Buffalo is a new media company that is here to help residents and visitors to immerse themselves in the exciting boom of Buffalo & Western New York. Founded in 2013 by a father / daughter team, we are now a leading destination for the “New Buffalo” movement.

Each month over 1 million of our pages are viewed by Western New Yorkers and visitors alike looking to discover the best events, things to do, shops, nightlife, and local businesses in our great region. We also reach an additional 1.5 million people per month between our social media channels and email marketing, most of whom are looking to connect with Buffalo businesses.

Our small team is dedicated to helping our city grow by showcasing everything the Queen city has to offer. In addition to our editorial content we utilize our website, social media platforms, and email marketing to inform our readers about the cool things our advertising clients want them to know about. By creating engaging, organic content for our readers, we put your business in the right places and in front of the right people in the right ways so that you can reach your goals.
