CHICAGO – March 7, 2016 – Brandmuscle local marketing expert and Chief Strategy Officer Clarke Smith will help restaurant owners and managers boost their local marketing efforts by presenting practical advice from the company’s recent State of Local Marketing Report this week.
Smith’s presentation is Tuesday, March 8 at 10:45 a.m. at the Midwest Foodservice Expo, which takes place March 7 – 9 at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee.
“We’re pleased Reinhart Foodservice, an event sponsor and Brandmuscle client, has invited us to share our knowledge of the local marketing landscape with restaurant operators and bar owners,” said Smith. “The proliferation of new media – primarily digital and social media – has left many small business owners spinning their wheels when it comes to marketing.
