Food Network, Lexus Expand Marketing Relationship

Building on a successful long-term relationship, Food Network and Lexus have partnered to produce a one-hour holiday special episode of Food Network’s popular Restaurant Impossible , the first course of an expanded multi-platform sponsorship that encompasses on-air, print, online and social media.

Holiday Impossible will air Dec. 9 at 10 p.m. ET and will feature chefs Michael Chiarello and Michelle Bernstein, members of the Lexus Culinary Masters, a team of celebrity chefs who serve as brand ambassadors to engage Lexus customers with programs and charitable outreach.

The episode is based in Joplin, Mo., a community ravaged by deadly tornadoes in May 2011. Since then, nearly 85,000 registered volunteers have provided more than 420,000 hours of community service in Joplin without formal recognition. Together, chefs Robert Irvine, Bernstein and Chiarello help the Joplin Boys & Girls Club create a grand thank-you meal for 1,000 volunteers and friends. Lexus and Lexus Financial Services will present a sizeable donation to the club, and Food Network viewers will have an opportunity to participate via a “text2give” campaign leading up to and during the episode.

Going forward, Lexus vehicles will be integrated into Seasons 5 and 6 of Restaurant Impossible. The campaign also will include content in Food Network Magazine, a series of web videos on and cross-promotion both on-air and online.

“Lexus has been a great partner with us at Food Network. Stepping into new territory as a content partner enables Lexus to tap into an even broader range of tools and capabilities to reach the affluent, engaged consumer Lexus wants to attract,” said Karen Grinthal, senior vice president of ad sales, Food Network and Cooking Channel.

“Lexus, in partnership with Food Network and the Restaurant Impossible franchise, have created a unique holiday special,” said Teri Hill, Lexus media manager. “This collaboration not only appeals to upscale, culinary-minded people, but also provides viewers with a tangible way to get involved and help a much needed community during the holiday season.”
