HDE named agency of record for new pizza concept coming to the McCormick Ranch area of Scottsdale in 2014. Pizza Me! has retained HDE Agency to lead efforts in marketing, design, public relations and community building.
Pizza Me! is a “fast-casual” style restaurant designed to meet the needs of busy daytime workers and families on the go, providing healthy, quick and affordable lunch and dinner options. The made-to-order pizzas will cook up wicked fast in a special gas fired oven, yielding a perfect personal pizza pie. Pizza Me! will also feature a variety of salads, shakes, beer and wine.
“My team is very excited to be working with Pizza Me! Our commitment to grassroots marketing, community relationship building and creative design approach will be great assets in the successful launch of Pizza Me!” said HDE Agency creative director, Landon Evans.
Earl Bray, an Arizona native who raised his family in the McCormick Ranch area and his business partner, Ben Sumrall, originally from Texas, are excited to bring Pizza Me! to Arizona.
The Pizza Me! team researched Phoenix area restaurant marketing agencies, ultimately deciding that HDE Agency was the right fit.
About working with HDE Agency, Bray said, “We conducted an extensive search to find a marketing firm with the right experience, creativity and matching business culture. HDE has all the attributes we were seeking and we look forward to a long lasting relationship”.
While Pizza Me! has confirmed the McCormick Ranch location will open in Spring of 2014, plans for more company owned stores as well as franchise development opportunities in other areas of Arizona and Texas are currently being negotiated. Stay tuned to HDE’s blog and press releases for more information about the launch and grand opening of Pizza Me! in the coming months.
