This is where it starts. This is where the Marketing Agency’s (later named Moma Consulting) baptism under fire, and this is why:
Moma Consulting, if you’ve followed our story is born when Diego’s Cantina’s Marketing Agency, lets them down only 3 weeks before their grand opening. This restaurant at that point had no menu, no webpage, no pictures. One of the agency’s partners had only been in town for two weeks when he was called over to the restaurant. Our company still didn’t have a formal name (we were still waiting to hear back from the agent, and we were still a couple of weeks from getting our EIN.
Everything Moma Consulting was at this point, was a dream, a laptop, a camera, and an SB600 (portable flash). Anyways, we got to Sugar Land, and over to the third floor to meet with the managers, and the owner to discuss what they needed. We were briefed on what they had agreed with the other agency, and we were thrilled to step on to the plate. We knew it was going to be a lot of work, and that time was of essence, but we also knew that we were capable of designing, and executing a branding strategy that would help them kick off, and position as one of the best dining experiences in Sugar Land.
By the time the restaurant opened on Thanksgiving weekend, Diego’s Cantina was ready with a website, fan page, and a menu. Everything came together. The staff was always willing to work hand in hand with us (and us with them) in order to make things happen. The Chef was very accommodating, and the managers made sure we had the dishes when we asked for them. Here are some examples of the work we did with them over the course of four months that we worked together to get their concept running.
While working with Diego’s Cantina, we had the opportunity to meet the owners of Post Oak Grill, whom were fascinated with our Food Photography, and called us to meet up with them. This way, what started out as a two week visit to Houston, Texas turned into a indefinite stay.
