Page One was challenged to build trust with the client. The restaurant group had experienced a revolving door of public relations firms before retaining Page One.
Page One started to build credibility with the client by first succeeding with one restaurant and it was eventually awarded most of the restaurants in the Levy Restaurant portfolio. The agency has re-introduced hundreds of media partners to Levy Restaurant locations. Tactics have included ongoing programming to keep years-old restaurants fresh, hosting frequent media and influencer events, creating promotions with community partners and coordinating hundreds of FAM (familiarization tours) with visiting national and international media contacts.
Levy Restaurants locations have been featured in hundreds of media and influencer outlets including Food Network, Today Show, Imbibe, Chicago Tribune, Thrillist, Easter and more. Page One consistently places between 15-30 media placements per month for each restaurant. To date, Page One is the longest-running public relations agency partner for the restaurant group.
