In this episode of Take-Away with Sam Oches, Sam shares two interviews that he recently conducted in person at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago. Both of these leaders are marketers with emerging restaurant businesses looking to make impact for their teams and their brands. First up is Nico Nieto, chief marketing officer at Naf Naf Middle Eastern Grill, a restaurant marketing veteran who is tasked with spreading the word about fast-casual franchise Naf Naf. He shares some tips on marketing an emerging restaurant concept, particularly one with a cuisine that is still fairly unfamiliar to many Americans. After that Sam chats with Jade Hedgeman-Chioke, VP of sales and marketing for Primo Partners, a Ben & Jerry’s franchise in the Southeast. Jade shares more about Primo Partners mission to develop strong business leaders in its pipeline, particularly Black entrepreneurs, and how the company connects that mission to its community.
