CINCINNATI (March 2, 2017) – Captain D’s, the leading fast casual seafood restaurant, has teamed up with Media Agency of the Year, Empower MediaMarketing. Captain D’s new Chief Marketing Officer Bob Kraut has a proven track record of re-energizing brands and shows no signs of slowing down.
“Captain D’s has done a great job of offering customers a great value and exciting menu options in a re-imaged comfortable restaurant environment—now it’s time to turn our attention to gaining more media impact through multiple media channels.”
Empower’s 32 years of quick service and fast casual restaurant experience includes Wendy’s, Buffalo Rings & Wings and Papa John’s Pizza.
“Our expertise will improve their targeting across all media channels, ensuring the right message reaches the right consumer at the right time.” Jim Price, Empower CEO said.
