PROCESS

Green Olive Media came on board looking to celebrate the Mississippi Delta’s reputation as the most southern place in the world, and quickly got to work establishing the brand’s rich identity, rooted in the simple things life has to offer — friends and family, food and drink, a good story, and music for the soul. While a logo had already been designed for the property, our team saw the opportunity to breathe whimsical and lighthearted life into Cotton House’s personality. Quirkier and more “in-and-of the place” than the regional competition, we focused our efforts on simple, yet effective visuals employing playful typography, clever copywriting, a restrained color palette, and imagery suggestive of the hotel’s home in the Delta. This approach was applied to a wide array of touchpoints ranging from sales and marketing materials to a robust vanity website and guest room collateral, including a recipe box that doubles as an in-room directory. Our communications team focused on increasing brand recognition at a national level, as well as brand awareness and loyalty among the Mississippi community and its visitors. We crafted targeted press lists of lifestyle writers across the nation, in addition to regionally-based, tailored messaging to highlight the hotel’s design, its location on Downtown Cleveland’s central Cotton Row, and the area’s heritage. Our social media team built and maintained an interactive presence on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to guide the online conversation and engage with the hotel’s followers. Utilizing our creativity and understanding of the hotel market, Green Olive developed specialty on-premise programming, and with the support of our design team, instituted a custom email marketing program to inform subscribers of updated happenings and ongoing promotions.

Green Olive also conceptualized a one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day package, offering guests a romantic stay at the hotel, complete with champagne and a rooftop dinner, ultimately creating buzz around the hotel’s on-property amenities. Green Olive Media was responsible for key press placements in award-winning publications, including Southern Living, Garden & Gun, Mississippi Magazine, Delta Magazine and Mississippi Business Journal.

After stints in the South’s culinary epicenters and its famed kitchens, James Beard award-nominated chef Cole Ellis returned to his hometown of Cleveland in 2013 to open Delta Meat Market, which soon became a local institution. In 2019, the market moved from its humble home on Cotton Row just across the street to Cotton House, where a tradition of good food, cold drinks, and fond memories would be continued. The brand itself demanded a refresh suitable for its new digs, without compromising all of the down-home charm and familial camaraderie that earned Delta Meat Market its loyal following.

Green Olive’s design team avoided stripping the market of its character, instead enriching the brand with retro visual cues reminiscent of the golden age of butchers and grocers -- a time when the expert behind the counter forged relationships with shoppers. Through the light rebrand, we explored a distinctively consistent aesthetic, but paid careful attention to finding a solution that maintained a sense of grit so important to the Delta Meat Market experience, and then carried it through playful collateral and an easy-to-maintain menu.

Our communications team first organized a week-long “Move Out Party” for Delta Meat Market’s loyal following in the Cleveland area while keeping chef Ellis and the restaurant at the forefront of local press during the transition to Cotton House Hotel. Green Olive established powerful partnerships with Melissa Townsend of Milk Punch Media, Carey Bringle of Peg Leg Porker, Wonderbird Spirits, and Casamigos during this series of kick-off events. We then organized and successfully executed a grand opening celebration, a vital step to define the Delta Meat Market brand in its new home. The communications team focused on chef Cole’s past successes and ongoing achievements, weaving a story worthy of national recognition amongst the food community, as well as increasing brand awareness among Delta locals and visitors alike. We crafted press lists of targeted food and lifestyle writers across the local, regional, and national markets, and secured profile pieces highlighting chef Cole and his signature recipes via in-print and on-air television demos. Green Olive Media successfully placed Delta Meat Market within national and regional dining guides to establish the eatery as a“must-dine” destination in Cleveland, touching on its unique brand story and menu. Green Olive pitched, secured, and coordinated complimentary experiences for members of the press to better understand chef Ellis’ culinary story while experiencing the Delta first hand, generating memorable narratives crafted for their readers. Furthermore, we utilized our creativity and understanding of the food and beverage market to develop specialty on- and off-premise events, including a dinner at the famed James Beard House in New York City, followed by a pop-up brunch in NYC hosted by fashion designer Billy Reid at his Bond Street retail outpost.

In addition to these efforts, Green Olive Media maintained a social media presence on Facebook and Instagram to build a following and thoughtfully engage with the restaurant’s followers. We centered our social media strategy around creating, organizing and planning content that highlighted current happenings and chef Ellis’ achievements, generating both awareness and excitement around special events such as the James Beard dinner and Billy Reid pop-up brunch. Much like initiatives behind our strategy for the hotel itself, we worked with relevant influencers to help reach an audience outside of Delta Meat Market’s pre-existing following.

Chef Cole Ellis opened Bar Fontaine in the summer of 2019 on the rooftop of Cotton House, building upon the foundation of trust established by Delta Meat Market. Refined, yet entirely approachable, the bar and restaurant highlights locally-sourced ingredients that reflect the interplay of cultures alive and well in the Delta, showing respect for the history and longevity of the community in which it sits. Offering a breathtaking vantage point atop the tallest building on Cotton Row, Bar Fontaine offers guests the perfect backdrop to take in all that Cleveland has to offer.

PROCESS

Bar Fontaine stakeholders approached Green Olive in need of a well-rounded brand that would serve the needs of both hotel visitors and locals in search of a culinary destination that couldn’t be found elsewhere in the community. Our design team eagerly got to work on a diverse solution that would ultimately complement the rooftop concept’s small plate and cocktail-centric menu, as well as its earthy, industrial ambiance. Inspired by classic food packaging, the aesthetics exude Italian charisma, lending a viewpoint for logo, collateral and menu design as sensorial as the experience itself.

Our communications team’s first initiative was to build excitement around chef Ellis’ forthcoming European concept, Bar Fontaine. Green Olive Media presented the new restaurant and bar to local press, generating awareness and anticipation as Ellis’ culinary empire grew. We crafted a targeted press list of writers across the nation, and pitching efforts highlighted the brand story, key talent, signature food and drink recipes, and an awe-inspiring rooftop view -- the only one of its kind in Downtown Cleveland. Green Olive Media strategically brainstormed on-premise programming such as an ongoing happy hour, and curated holiday dinners to encourage community participation and engagement. As with Delta Meat Market, Green Olive Media solicited and coordinated complimentary experiences for the press, where writers were able to immerse themselves in the Bar Fontaine experience like a Cleveland local.

Green Olive Media started at ground zero establishing a Bar Fontaine presence on social media platforms. The core of our strategy was to ensure Bar Fontaine had a distinct brand voice, entirely independent and separate from that of Delta Meat Market. We crafted specific content with this in mind, highlighting the beverage program and signature dishes, as well as the interior and exterior spaces.

Focused on increasing brand recognition amongst the beverage community on a national level, we simultaneously generated awareness for Bar Fontaine within the Cleveland market, quickly establishing the restaurant and bar as a popular favorite for locals and visitors alike. Success of specialty programming, like the New Year’s Eve celebration in which guests indulged in a three-course dinner with cocktail pairings and an overnight stay at Cotton House, garnered additional attention and strengthened the ties binding chef Cole to his devoted following of Delta neighbors. Green Olive successfully placed Bar Fontaine in award-winning publications including Garden & Gun, Eat. Drink. Mississippi, Taste of the South, Okra Magazine, Delta Magazine and Mississippi Magazine. We landed Ellis’ “Risi e Bisi” recipe on the Very Vera Show, where viewers learned how to make the dish at home. Green Olive landed interviews with Bar Fontaine’s bartender Matthew McCain in Desoto Magazine and Better Bartending, shining a spotlight on his background and expertise, the design of Bar Fontaine, and recipes for crowd favorite elixirs. Finally, Green Olive’s social media efforts contributed to audience growth of nearly 1,000% on Instagram and 1,250% on Facebook within our first year of engagement.
