& Dash
___

Holler & Dash Biscuit House is a fast-casual restaurant established by parent company Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. in 2016. After opening locations in Homewood, Alabama; Tuscaloosa, Alabama; and Celebration, Florida, Green Olive Media was brought on board to develop the brand’s narrative and public aware-ness and understanding by spotlighting the elevated Southern menu and regional food artisans, the brand’s interest in the communities it serves, and an in-store experience steeped in Southern hospitality. Green Olive Media was also tasked with generating and supporting grand opening initiatives in Brentwood, Tennessee; Atlanta, Georgia; Nashville, Tennessee; and Charlotte, North Carolina.

On a local level, Green Olive Media implemented robust communications strategies across the southeast to present Holler & Dash to as many key stakeholders and press representatives as possible to support grand openings, grow ​the consumer base, garner traditional and non-traditional media coverage, develop social media awareness by way of social media influencer engagement, and extend word-of-mouth reach that generated awareness and excitement for the brand. On a national level, we generated media awareness with earned press placements that built upon the local market rhetoric, and promote the brand’s overarching narrative. Marketing activities for Holler & Dash included the ideation, creation and coordination of on-site events, the negotiation of strong off-site event participation, and brokering creative partnerships with social media influencers, business and social organizations, community organizations and non-profits.

VIP EVENTS

VIP EVENTS

Following grand openings in Brentwood, Tennessee; 8th Avenue - Nashville; Atlanta and Charlotte, the Green Olive Media team produced tactical, media and influencer targeted “VIP” events intended to share the Holler & Dash brand narrative, generate content and awareness, and drive trial. By example, Holler & Dash celebrated the grand opening of North Carolina’s inaugural location in Charlotte with a soiree including passed bites and local libations while breaking biscuits and rolling dough! From a Deconstructed Biscuit Bar guests crafted full portions of signature biscuit sandwiches designed to highlight Holler & Dash’s artisan ingredients, in between rolling dough alongside Culinary Director Brandon Frohne. An Instagram-worthy Biscuit Bar featuring the Holler & Dash artisan partners and an array of menu items was a standout, generating many photo opportunities as guests mixed-and-mingled, engaged with the restaurant’s brand ambassadors, tasted new menu items being passed by the Holler & Dash team and sipped on a selection of wine and local beer offerings. To toast the occasion, attendees each received a plain biscuit to ‘break bread’ alongside Holler & Dash key leadership. Per outreach facilitated by Green Olive, the event garnered a total attendance of 32 local and regional social media influencers and press representatives plus their guests.
