Duke Marketing is working with Chevys Fresh Mex again in 2011, handling public relations for the brand and their sister brand, El Torito. Duke Marketing has garnered national media attention with the fundraiser for a injured baseball fan at Chevys locations in San Francisco and their new shrimp promotion.
Duke Marketing managed the re-opening of Chevys San Leandro, CA location with a full integrated marketing communications plan. Public relations, promotions, direct mail, advertising, a fundraiser and giant fiesta took place to garner awareness, raise money for the Boys & Girls Club and drive sales to the relocated Chevys location.
Duke Marketing took sombreros around the community the days leading up to the event to draw attention, and the giant fiesta offered a tortilla toss for the Boy & Girls Club kids to have a fun way to win prizes and raise money. Face painting, piñata breaking and free chips & salsa attracted over 600 people to attend and over $5,000 was raised.
Duke Marketing handled all corporate communications and public relations for the 173 unit Mexican Restaurant chain. Duke Marketing revised the press materials and managed several national news announcements.
Duke Marketing provided food photography of the new menu items for Chevys. They incorporated the new photos in their direct mailer, their menus and their print advertising.
Duke Marketing developed the messaging “The New Generation of Fresh Mex” which was incorporated into Billboards, direct mail and newsprint advertising.
