The market for gourmet burgers and American style smokehouses, although very popular, has become saturated.
Smoky Boys came to us as an independent business wanting to compete with other more established chains taking influence from America’s southern cuisine and offering ‘true B-B-Q’ to their guests.

The Smoky Boys Brand
We developed a brand that revolved around illustration, quirky grill icons adorning menus to takeaway bags.
We created social media campaigns that shouted out about a kitchen with a wealth of experience and focused on high-quality cuts of meat. We engaged customers used to eating at a big barbecue chain by running long-standing offers which were just as good value.

We’ve worked with over 200 brands over 6 countries since 2009, including:
