Fazoli's Restaurant Franchise Names Brokaw Inc. Advertising Agency of Record

Cleveland Firm Handed Brand Strategy and Creative Duties

LEXINGTON, Ky. -(BUSINESS WIRE)- Fazoli's, fresh off the launch of a new prototype restaurant and menu, is taking its brand to a new advertising agency.

Right Place Media will continue to provide media buying and digital marketing expertise, while Brad Ritter Communications, LLC will continue to handle PR duties.

The agency's strength in these areas, as well as its personality, aligns well with Fazoli's current and emerging needs."

Brokaw was founded on April Fool's Day in 1992. The independent, small global agency located in downtown Cleveland has established itself as an award-winning center for original, strategically driven creative for clients such as vitaminwater global, Bruegger's Bagels and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Brokaw's focus will be to further sharpen the Fazoli's brand position and develop a new and relevant creative campaign, while helping to drive a fully integrated marketing effort.
