Any non-commercial shop owners NOT use social media for advertising/promoting, and yet still survive comfortably?

I love how zero replies are on this post. I think it just goes to show that if you are on the internet (pizzamaking.com) you have no excuse not to be on social to promote your biz. I think that those old school pizzerias who have been around for ages are the ones who can get away with having a low social presence, but I'd be interested to see how that continues to play out long term.
The What's Good Dough Podcast talks to pizza makers about how they built their pizzerias and social followings.

Check out my episode with Brian Spangler who talks about dabbling with the pizza he grew up with (not the stuff he sells every day):

Either that or youíre the only shop in town.

What is a non-commercial shop?

I think I may have meant to say non-CHAIN shops.

I worked at one of the oldest pizza shops in our small city, they donít know much about dough science or why they do things the way they do them. Itís a quite popular spot, but Iím not sure what happens when their 60-70 yr old customers turn 80-90. They donít seem to be replacing them with as many 20-30 yr olds as they will need to be a busy in 15 years.
They are on Facebook and started posting a bit more of Instagram, so there may be some hope.

Instagram was the only way you could get my pizza from my Alley. You had to order Monday for a Friday pick up. It went so well that I bought a food truck, so Iím not sure why more shops donít try it more.

My struggle is, Iím only making pizza during the rush, so itís hard to get content. During the season Iím only working 2-3 days a week (didnít quit either job to take this risk) and nothing in the winter so itís so hard to have content to post everyday
