The first quarter of 2021 was all about “more” for Hot Dish. What an exciting quarter it was as we welcomed new clients, new team members, and a variety of new projects.
Breakout Quarter for New Client Business
We are excited to announce that we added 10 new clients to our growing roster of amazing brands! Each brand brings different growth goals, challenges, and opportunities on the franchise development and consumer sides of our business. We are both proud and humbled to be able to bring our marketing, advertising, and strategic expertise in franchising to so many new client partners. Our leadership is pleased as well:
“It was an awesome quarter and we’re looking forward to serving our new clients and even more great news and growth throughout the rest of the year,” – Dawn Kane, CEO & Co-founder.
Welcome New Team Members
We love servin’ up new talent and fresh ideas. We recently welcomed not one, but two new, talented copywriters to our Creative Team. These new Dishers bring even more smarty-pants expertise to our team. You’ll want to get to know’em!
Our newest Senior Copywriter, Mark, brings extensive experience from both the agency and in-house environments, writing for B2C, B2B, and food advertising for a variety of brands. He’s looking forward to digging into his new client list.
Bryce is a marketer with a penchant for copywriting. He’s passionate about putting the right words in the right order that connects people to brands. On the side – he’s an avid jogger and Minnesota Twins fan.
Client Travel Resumes
In-person visits with our clients have picked up as COVID restrictions lessen and teams are feeling more comfortable with travel and face-to-face meetings. It’s kept The Dishers busy flying across the country.
We woke up and smelled the coffee in Salt Lake City, UT for a planning meeting with Beans & Brews Coffeehouse. With safety at top of mind, we masked up and socially distanced our way through an amazing planning meeting to help Beans & Brews grow their franchise locations.
Then, we flew to the great state of Connecticut for a legendary planning meeting with Nardelli’s Grinder Shoppe. Established 99 years ago, we had a lot to bite into. We got to experience their brand of family fun by trying one-of-a-kind, mouthwatering grinders – loaded with everything! Our visit featured insightful discussions around ways to spark more brand loyalty and connect more people to franchising with the Nardelli’s team.
The Dishers also visited D.C., America’s capital and home of our friends, Paisano’s! Our team got to experience the true meaning of the Paisano’s name during an insight session with the founder, leadership team, and local franchisees. The trip was topped off with a tasting and tour at the local store. We returned home with full hearts, stomachs, and brimming with ideas. We’re ready to ignite success and bring Paisano’s to the table!
We are so excited to get back on the road and do what we do best – Franchise Marketing – with our amazing client partners.
