“The success of my book is only as successful as it inspires those restaurant operators who use it,” said Linda Duke.


“In any economic situation, local store marketing is the least expensive and most effective way to get restaurant sales.”

For 25 years as one of the restaurant industry’s foremost marketing experts, Linda Duke and her firm, Duke Marketing, have specialized in marketing for multi-location and franchise organizations.


Ms. Duke, the northern California born and raised bundle of energy, has consulted with top restaurant brands in the United States. Duke has created award-winning advertising, marketing and public relations, and is an accomplished author and speaker.


 “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”.


Duke’s first client was a restaurant chain with 12 franchisees. “I learned early in my career what local store marketing was all about,” says Duke. Duke Marketing provides local store marketing planning and training, as well as events and grand openings for multi-unit operators.  Duke herself has opened restaurants and handled hundreds of events for numerous multi-unit restaurant organizations across the country.  Some of Duke’s marketing campaigns have been translated in Ms. Duke’s recently published book, Recipes for Restaurateurs Marketing-Cookbook.


“I was inspired to write my marketing recipes because of the enormous audience demand after my speaking engagements,” said Duke. Duke’s self-published marketing cookbook has had great reception. Containing over 100 different “recipes” marketing tactics and real client case studies, Duke’s book release and tour of 2009 was a huge success.  Many restaurant chains, operators and suppliers have ordered thousands of Duke’s cookbook.


Recipes for Restaurateurs is a restaurant marketing cookbook. It isn’t a cookbook for preparing food in a kitchen; “Recipes for Restaurateurs” is a resource written in a reader-friendly format with over 250 photos and real restaurant case studies, along with100 field tested tips, tools and tactics of successful marketing recipes (marketing programs), ingredients needed, and directions (a tactical guide), to generate sales, create awareness and build any restaurant brand.


In addition to being a published author, Ms. Duke is a nationally recognized speaker, educator and motivational trainer. She speaks frequently at industry and client conferences, and speaking is a member of the board of directors of the California Restaurant Association’s Educational Foundation CRAEF, and the National Restaurant Industry’s Fast Casual Council.  Duke provides customized seminars, workshops and keynotes.
