Pizza Schmizza


Pizza Schmizza

A Scrumptious Campaign

 

This is not your ordinary pizza experience.

With a name like Pizza Schmizza, the irreverence is palpable across their more than 20 stores in the Portland, Oregon metro area and beyond. From the Alligator Pizza, to the Schpaghetti & Meatball Pizza to the Frikin’ Chicken Pasta, those “in-the-know” know better than to settle for ordinary pizza restaurants.

“Working with Asbury & Co. has been a game changer for Schmizza International, Inc,” says Holly Earle-Schultze, Schmizza’s Director of Marketing.

Asbury & Co.’s integrated creative campaign leverages the quirkiness that Schmizza customers love and includes television, billboards, YouTube, Spotify, and a lot of digital media across all three brands (Pizza Schmizza, Schmizza Pub & Grub, and Schmizza Public House).

“Exceptional art direction and great media placement, we’ve seen sales and customer growth increase in the past couple of years. We are extremely satisfied with the partnership we have with Asbury,” says Holly Earle-Schultze, Schmizza’s Director of Marketing.

 

Relief Nursery

 

Relief Nursery

Relief Nursery came to Asbury & Co. seeking a way to increase awareness of the vital services they provide. What we delivered exceeded their expectations.

In a sea of non-profit television spots all competing for audience attention, how do you set yourself apart? Our solution was a Disney-style animated video. It explained the real-world impacts of the family support services they provide for children at high risk for abuse or neglect. It was a creative problem solving journey that pushed and stretched everyone on the team, and we applaud the Relief Nursery for giving us the opportunity to pursue the bigger idea.

A Happy Camper

In 2020, George and Martha Sutton transitioned the management of their business to a new team, but we’ll never forget the fun we had working with Sutton RV from 2015 through 2019.

As Oregon’s original Airstream dealer, Sutton RV has been the Willamette Valley’s premier one-stop destination for towables for decades. In 2008, they were honored as a Top 50 RV Dealer nationwide. The Sutton story is one of family, and they live up to their longtime tagline “You’re gonna like it here.”

Sutton RV turned to Asbury & Co. to expand sales. Our team quickly identified strategic solutions to improve their messaging and advertising. A new logo design improved visibility and brand recognition. Our new tv spots and memorable radio advertising combined with an effective digital strategy to improve sales.

Longs Meat Market

Raising the Steaks

In a fast-paced world, how do you convince busy consumers to skip the grocery store offerings and take the time to get the better quality, selection and freshness a butcher shop can offer?

Long’s Meat Market is a case study in the power of effective advertising. Longs came to Asbury & Co., looking for a more strategic approach to after having previously done what they described as a “shoot from the hip” marketing strategy.

Smart writing and art direction in a series of tv spots and print ads – paired with an updated digital strategy – was the recipe for success. Our natural food styling and attention to getting the best photography makes every product look delicious.

Along the way, we also redesigned their brand and gave them a new website. The campaign helped drive significant sales increases year after year.

Long’s remains one of our favorite accounts with tv spots that win national awards and keep customers coming in the door for the best steaks in town.
