Graphic Design

Their marketing materials needed to be redesigned to match their new branding and to appeal to their target audience. A new menu was designed along with other marketing pieces such as table tents, coupons, flyers, and a magazine cover. Custom photography to highlight the restaurant and their appealing dishes was used to create enticing visuals for customers.

Working together to understand their needs and create a shot list of photos was an essential preliminary step to ensure an efficient photo shoot. Next, we prepared the area to capture photos of products, interior, and exterior spaces using the proper lighting. Lastly, photos were edited and optimized for digital and printed marketing materials.

Pizza Restaurant Social Media Management

Social Media Management

Local restaurants rely on word-of-mouth advertising through social media to attract new customers and build relationships with local diners. Campaign sheets were created to be sure information is ready and approved by the client with plenty of time to write, create, and schedule posts for Facebook and Twitter.

Reputation management is another critical area, and careful consideration is paid to respond to Facebook and Google comments and reviews within a 24-hour time frame. Particular attention is paid to negative reviews, and responses are crafted and submitted to the owner for approval before posting publicly.

If you’re looking for a team that will listen to what you need, answer your phone calls, and get the job done fast, Hometown is the perfect company. We had a short timeline for our project, but Hometown had no problem with our deadlines. They kept my old website up and running the whole time we were working on the new one so we had no downtime! They stop in for lunch all the time and I love having the chance to work with a local company that cares about our community.
