Dayton, OH (PRWEB) September 17, 2009
Smashburger, a fast casual "better burger" restaurant concept based in Denver, and restaurant franchise company Rodenkirch Management Group LLC have named Allison Ryan Communications (ARC), a Cincinnati-based communications and public relations firm as its agency of record. ARC will promote and handle media communications for Smashburger in Dayton and Cincinnati.
Smashburger is a fast-casual restaurant concept that is quickly becoming every city's favorite burger spot, featuring 100 percent fresh--not frozen--Angus Smashburgers which are smashed on the grill to seal in delicious juicy flavor.
Although Smashburger is known for its savory burgers, the restaurant also serves up delicious Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs, and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries. Burger lovers can pair their meals with beer, wine, Häagen-Dazs shakes, and root-beer floats.
ARC will manage Smashburger's local day-to-day communication and marketing efforts as it enters the Ohio market. Smashburger is finalizing plans to open more than a dozen locations in the region during the next few years. Since Smashburger aims to become every city's favorite burger place, it partners with local public relations agencies to more effectively develop its presence and build key partnerships in each respective market.
"Working with Smashburger and Rodenkirch is a great opportunity for ARC. Smashburger is an organization that exhibits tremendous confidence, passion and ingenuity not only in its product, but in its overall brand," says Allison Ryan, Allison Ryan Communications founder and principal. "Smashburger's success is evident in the way it has created better burger lovers throughout the country and we look forward to launching the brand in Dayton and Cincinnati."
