FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmerman Advertising, already well known as a secret weapon for the retail and restaurant industries, revealed today the first new business win for their new Zimmerman Media Group (ZMG), a revamped, cutting-edge integrated media department, developed as part of a new growth strategy established by newly appointed agency leadership. Dubbed Zimmerman 3.0, the next phase for the national powerhouse officially commences with the addition of Nashville based steakhouse chain, Logan's Roadhouse.
ZMG, Zimmerman's Media Group is set to take over all integrated media planning and buying duties for the restaurant chain's 259 nationwide locations right away. "There's nothing more powerful than an authentic brand and Logan's is the real deal," says Zimmerman CMO, Cliff Courtney. "They have an elite new team and we couldn't be more excited to help them start stealing new market share," he adds.
"ZMG is exactly the kind of differentiated media offering that clients want today: Faster, focused on optimization, and able to meet brand goals and drive product trial at the same time," explains Zimmerman CEO, Pat Patregnani. With a combination of DRTV, an expertly designed proprietary clearance monitoring system along with an established methodology guaranteeing the media plan is led by the brand and not vice versa, Zimmerman 3.0's new media offering will continue to provide stiff competition for competing agencies.
"We are lucky to handle some of America's most iconic restaurant brands, and Logan's is a dynamic addition," says Zimmerman Founder, Jordan Zimmerman. "ZMG is dramatically more effective in driving results and we are thrilled Logan's recognized that." He also pointed to the continued success of the freshly invigorated agency… "Zimmerman 3.0 is very real, and recent wins like Logan's, mean great growth and opportunity in our future," he adds.
