Where Strategy Meets Success

Discover the strategies, tactics, and impact behind our PR triumphs as we share the success in our client case studies.

W Nashville hotel + NoHo Hospitality

W Nashville hired our team to lead the PR efforts for two food & beverage concepts from James Beard Award-winning chef Andrew Carmellini, which opened in the W Nashville in Fall 2021. We were also brought on to support the PR strategy and grand opening initiatives for the hotel creating a buzzy and dramatic entry into the Nashville market.

From coordinating multiple grand opening events with VIP celebrities, artists, musicians and community influencers to setting up media tours and sneak previews prior to opening to guarantee press placement in local, regional and national online and print publications, we helped W Nashville and Chef Andrew Carmellini establish their spots as must-visit destinations for tourists and locals alike. We also helped the hotel and two restaurants pivot during a global pandemic when their opening dates continued to shift by creating impactful messaging to share with the media, re-prioritizing PR and marketing tasks to align with our overall strategy and planning/executing safe and memorable grand opening events.

The Results:

Sold out nights at both the hotel and restaurants, resulting in a vibrant culinary destination in the heart of the Gulch.

Five points pizza

When we presented our proposal to Five Points Pizza, we were met with a response of “that’s a lot of slices of pizza.” They gave us a three-month trial nonetheless, and eight years later we are still going strong for them.

Throughout the years, we’ve worked with Five Points Pizza to create an annual Free Slice Night, assisted in the efforts for opening their second location and served as their liaison to the community. We’ve coordinated local partnerships, hosted events and secured press mentions in local, regional and national news outlets. We also now manage their social media driving the content strategy and managing real-time engagement across three platforms.
