When Annie Ortega from Adam’s said that the Red Velvet Cake Kit’s got picked up by a national chain we went ecstatic.
Drew Advertising has officially moved to a new location in West Downtown San Antonio. Andrew M. Anguiano, CEO/Owner of Drew Advertising, chose the eccentric Victorian style home to provide accessibility and to better serve the agency’s customers.
“ I’m pleased to have moved Drew Advertising to West Downtown. This past year, our Agency continues to move in a positive direction,” stated Mr. Anguiano. “We are especially pleased to continue working with great clients and fortunate to have survived a tough economy. I expect great things from us in 2014.” The company, founded in 2007, has seen it’s share of rough patches but a loyal group of customers including Alamo Beer Company, Adams Extract & Spices, Ole Avocado Guacamole and recent projects with the City of Leon Valley and Harlandale Independent School District keeps work flowing.
The agency has been instrumental in quite a few campaigns and projects in San Antonio. Including the Area Foundation’s 2010 pet campaign “Talk About It” where they coined the phrase “Estas Loco Si No Spay/Neuter.” They also led the design of Toyota Motor Manufacturing’s 10,000 sq. ft. Visitor and Education Center.
Starting out of his closet on the city’s Southside, the El Paso Street location is a definite step in positioning the agency to be more competitive in a fast changing market. “Our core principal is to provide our clients results and build strong business relationships. Not every client fits our culture but the ones that do are very happy with our work. I believe that’s why we still exist,” concluded Anguiano.
Drew Advertising is a full-service advertising agency. The agency specializes in brand management, creative solutions, public relations, media and project management.
Four years ago, Drew Advertising was asked to lead the marketing efforts for San Jose Mission’s annual Fiesta event, MissionFest. “Mission San Jose is where I’m from,” stated agency owner Andrew Anguiano, “my family has deep roots in San Antonio and it was a no brainer that we would support the church.”
MissionFest began as a church festival and under Drew Advertising’s marketing efforts it is quickly becoming a Fiesta signature event. In just 3 years, the event has grown in attendance, doubled it’s sponsorships and netted $42,000 in it’s 2013 effort. Shattering previous fundraising efforts. The Fiesta event has raised over $120,000 for the historic church.
“When we were in our early meetings it was important for us to capitalize on our unique positioning, we are the only event at a mission,” continued Anguiano, “we quickly decided to move the festival back to the church (it previously was at Mission County Park) and become a destination event.” The move proved to be a good call for the small parish community.
Drew Advertising was instrumental in the branding of the event, consulting on entertainment and developing a comprehensive promotion calendar that placed the event on television, radio, print and web.
“Our company enjoys donating and being a part of our community,” concluded Anguiano, “that’s how we started. Contributing to good causes is good for business.”
