Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Milkshake Concepts – the innovative minds behind Vidorra, Stirr, Dirty Bones, Serious Pizza and Citizen – today announced that it has added digital marketing services to its scope of work with Champion.
Milkshake Concepts named Champion its Public Relations Agency of Record last year.

“We are continuing to grow and develop new concepts, so it’s important to have an agency of the highest caliber that has what it takes to increase sales, guest traffic and exposure,” said Imran Sheikh, co-founder & CEO of Milkshake Concepts. “Champion has proven to be an invaluable partner as our PR agency and we have no doubt they will continue to be as successful on the digital front.”
Founded in 2002, Dallas-based Champion ranks among the nation’s largest and most acclaimed PR and digital media agencies in the foodservice space, representing such blue-chip national brands as Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, Fazoli’s, On The Border, Logan’s Roadhouse, Taco John’s and Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux. The agency’s clientele spans a wide array of industries including high tech, automotive, consumer products, real estate and not-for-profits.
