Red Robin Selects Vitro As New Agency Of Record

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc., (NASDAQ: RRGB), a casual dining restaurant chain focused on serving an innovative selection of high-quality gourmet burgers in a family-friendly atmosphere, today announced the selection of Vitro as its national creative agency of record.

As the gourmet burger expert continues efforts to revitalize the Red Robin brand and execute its long-term strategic plan, the company sought an innovative, idea-centered and collaborative agency partner with the expertise to integrate a complete arsenal of marketing disciplines and channels.  Vitro, which has offices in San Diego and New York City, was selected after a nationwide agency search that included a capabilities review and creative and media assignment.  Vitro's roles with Red Robin will include strategic planning, creative development and execution and media planning.

"Vitro impressed us with their insurgent attitude, their top to bottom understanding of our business, and their track record of growing challenger brands," said Denny Marie Post, Red Robin's senior vice president and chief marketing officer.  "They delivered a fresh perspective that will help us climb to the top of this incredibly competitive category."

"We always say brands should treat their product as their best marketing channel, which works perfectly because there isn't anyone in America making better burgers than Red Robin," said Vitro chief executive officer Tom Sullivan.  "We've been blown away by the passion, dedication and insight of the Red Robin team and we can't wait to jump in and help tell their story."

To lead the agency search, Red Robin enlisted Janet Bustin of Mzyme Marketing, a Dallas-based consultancy that conducts agency reviews in the areas of integrated communications, advertising, media, promotion, digital and public relations. Mzyme clients include Fortune 500 and other companies across categories including food and beverage, restaurant, retail, entertainment and services.

Vitro joins a roster of Red Robin agency partners that includes Parsippany, N.J.-based Coyne PR, the company's national public relations agency of record, which was selected in early 2012.
