Grand Openings


Grand Openings

Foodie Communications specializes in successful grand opening and re-opening events. We understand how complex these events can be, so we have brought it down to a science while working with your budget and needs.

From creating the pre-open buzz to the post-open awareness waves, we will get your newest restaurant noticed and remembered by your trade area. Our grand openings-in-a-box leverage reusable branded assets to minimize costs and complexities when multiple openings are planned.


We offer on-site event staffing services at prevailing market rates. We only charge an agency-handling fee of 20% (to cover payroll and processing) and expenses associated with brand-required shirts or other promotional clothing and props. Our brand ambassadors in all markets are carefully selected to fit your brand. We can staff any and all events throughout the United States, from door-hanging, grand openings, product samplings, trade shows and much more. We produce brand specific training videos and programs to ensure your Brand Ambassadors are properly prepared to represent your organization.


Most of all, we have the experience and expertise to make your grand opening a success. We have developed a plethora of traffic-driving tactics to generate buzz and garner excitement for your event. We also know the logistics required to run an event smoothly.
