The Plaza III restaurant is an iconic Kansas City establishment, remembered for its great food and top-notch service. Today, Plaza III has reinvented itself as a direct-to-consumer, mail-order food company, delivering fresh Angus steaks, soups, side dishes, and desserts straight to your door. Rhycom helped re-launch this beloved KC brand in just under a month to get the product to market before the holiday rush.
Objectives: Create awareness and excitement around the reintroduction of Plaza III. Educate the public on the “new” Plaza III and drive traffic to the website to sell products.
Our goal was to build on the nostalgia of the original brand by staying true to their rich steakhouse colors and bold fonts but evolving with modern imagery for a new customer base. This translated into a sleek and simple package design and an easy-to-navigate e-commerce website. We then built a campaign around two themes; education of the “new” Plaza III and the quality of the food. We leveraged influencer marketing, local PR, and paid and organic social media to promote the products and drive website traffic.
We managed and executed the project from conception all the way through a successful holiday launch.
