WHY DUKE MARKETING?
“Some of the brands we have worked with may have 20 restaurants open, and may not have a marketing executive in place or any materials for their restaurants,” says Duke. “They need a plan, tools and marketing materials for their franchisees or general managers.” Duke provides senior leadership and a full service marketing team including creative and graphic services, advertising design and media buying, local store marketing and more.
Getting media impressions or viewers, listeners and readers is more than just sending a press release. Ms. Duke has built relationships with the media, and manages public relations and media relations for clients worldwide. She has landed TV news segments and media trained top chefs and operators for appearances on The Food Network and Travel Channel, CNN, CNBC, FOX News and local television stations across the country. Ms. Duke also manages investor relations for publicly-held companies and is an expert in crisis communications.
“Public relations isn’t all we do,” says Duke. “We create customized local store marketing programs that generate news.” Several of Duke’s clients have garnered national media attention. Sales results from her efforts have earned her the title “Double-Digit Duke”.
We are leaders in providing strategic planning, positioning and brand development. Our team provides hands on execution of promotions, events and client campaigns. We develop custom local store marketing programs with detailed easy to execute instructions and training. Our creative team provides full graphic design services from collateral and menus, to image development, store design, décor and point of purchase materials, as well as advertising and media buying.

Why Choose Us?
Who are We?
"Marketing isn't Just about advertising, its about all the pieces (corporate identity, direct mail, website, public relations, etc.) coming together and integrating into a consistent message...all singing from the same song book, so to speak...its much louder and full of harmony than just a few peices singing on their own."
"Strategy...the ability to define one's business by understanding completely who the audience is, what music they like and where they listen to it. Then deciding what song you want to sing to them, and in what style...this is how you hit the top of the charts...in other words, strategy is defining your business...how you position yourself to your potential customers and how you will reach them.
