Sister brands select agency based on track record of creativity, energy and media expertise
Champion’s scope of work includes each brand’s public relations, local restaurant marketing and media buying. The agency recently helped open Original ChopShop’s third Dallas-Fort Worth restaurant in Park Cities and managed local outreach for the opening of bellagreen’s second DFW restaurant at The Shops at Legacy on Dec. 14.
“Both of our brands are expanding rapidly, so we are excited to partner with a best-in-class PR agency to help us achieve our goals,” said Jason Morgan, CEO of bellagreen and Original ChopShop. “Champion is stacked with a tremendous team that has already done exceptional work on our account. We are looking forward to great things to come in the months and years ahead.”
Founded in 2002 by veteran marketing executive Ladd Biro, the agency has experienced exponential growth since late-2011 when Biro partnered with entrepreneur Eric Spiritas, a business development pro. Dallas-based Champion now ranks among the nation’s largest PR agencies in the foodservice space, representing such blue-chip national brands as Fazoli’s, Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh, Main Event Entertainment, Nestle Toll House Café, Pei Wei, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, RAVE Restaurant Group and Taco John’s. The agency’s clientele spans a wide array of industries including high tech, event production, sports and entertainment and not-for-profits.
“It didn’t take us long to figure out that bellagreen and Original ChopShop are incredible concepts with massive growth potential,” said Spiritas. “We are thrilled that Jason selected Champion to be a part of the team that will take both brands to the next level, and far beyond.”
