KidGlov, a boutique marketing and advertising agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently welcomed Becky Perrett, Runza’s director of marketing, to its podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explored the iconic Midwestern restaurants’ 73 years feeding and supporting the community.
“Runza is a Nebraska icon and for decades, this restaurant has played an active role in supporting the greater community,” said Kelley Peterson, KidGlov vice president, creative director. “It was a pleasure to sit down with Becky Perret to learn more about how community partnerships and purpose driven marketing campaigns have impacted Runza over the years.”
The first Runza Restaurant opened in Lincoln, Neb. in 1949 featuring the classic Runza(R) sandwich. The restaurant franchise now operates throughout Nebraska and neighboring states, serving homestyle favorites including the classic Runza(R) sandwich, hand-pressed burgers, crinkle fries and onion rings.
As Runza’s director of marketing, Perrett has been instrumental in sharing the Runza message, connecting with customers and building community partnerships. “We’re aware on a daily basis of the love from our customers. And we take that very seriously, not only in our food and our customer service, but in our mindset in terms of giving back and community engagement and support. That is really, really important to us,” said Perrett.
During the podcast, Perrett shares how the restaurant’s marketing has evolved over the decades, breaks down some of their most iconic campaigns, and discusses the importance of community partnerships including relationships with Husker athletics, the Alzheimer’s Association and their program, Runza Feeds the Need.
