Boca Raton, FL Miami Grill, a Florida icon for over 30 years, has partnered with 2TON Creative Agency, a South Florida based marketing firm. While the partnership may be new, the “fresh” vision 2TON has developed for Miami Grill is based on a bit of nostalgia.
“Miami Grill is a beloved brand that’s tied to many memories of growing up in South Florida,” said Ryan Boylston, Founder and CEO of 2TON.
2TON’s marketing plan for Miami Grill is to honor the quintessential South Florida brand. Focusing on the quality of Miami Grill’s long-standing menu items highlighting the food, and the fast-casual, made-to-order model that has been Miami Grill’s identity for 30 years.
The first order of business was the Miami Grill logo, which got a modern uplift while still staying true to the classic aesthetics of the brand.
In addition to marketing the Miami Grill brand to grow its already well-established consumer following, 2TON is working with the chain to award franchises to qualified prospects.
“Business is booming. We’re ready for more locations, to grow our footprint, and have franchise partners share in our success,” said Jonathan H. Vogel, Chief Operating Officer, Miami Grill.
The projected growth for Miami Grill is huge. While the original concept is one that’s tried and true, the brand has also introduced Miami Grill Express and Miami Grill & Bar, two new concepts, offering interested investors greater revenue potential and flexibility.
2TON will be leveraging the recent surge of drive-thru popularity and off premise dining, a category Miami Grill already excels in.
“Miami Grill has always had the made-to-order drive-thru model, so are already experts in this space. By integrating advanced technology as we move forward, this is a market we will continue to dominate. Now is a great time to invest in Miami Grill,” said Boylston.
2TON and Miami Grill began their collaboration with a bold campaign for Miami Grill’s New Big & Crispy Chicken Sandwich that became a contender in the infamous “Chicken Sandwich Wars.” The campaign featured funny ads, subtly poking at the “other guys’” chicken sandwiches, saying “Bye Louisiana. Bye Kentucky. Hello Florida.”
“To say I’m honored to have the opportunity to work with Miami Grill is an understatement,” Boylston, a South Florida native, said of the partnership.
The agency has developed a digital marketing strategy including social media campaigns, a new website, radio advertising, and television commercials. For franchise development the strategy will be focused on reaching qualified, passionate candidates who are serious about their future and the Miami Grill brand.
“We respect and trust 2TON’s fresh new vision for our brand’s future. We are excited to collaborate and look forward to what’s to come,” said Vogel.
By leveraging the present-day energy of the City of Miami and staying true to Miami Grill’s authenticity, family-friendly, and diverse menu, 2TON is achieving a creative, fresh, and unique look that reflects what Miami Grill is today.
