Bring simplicity and automation to franchisees
With over 60 restaurants open, the company was handling things manually and was looking for a scalable solution for consistent branding across all platforms and franchisees producing their own content.
Proactively manage online reviews
Guest reviews are crucial for winning new customers and being visible on search. So Joey’s Restaurants wanted to optimize review management and improve metrics.
Provide local experiences on social media
The company is embracing a hybrid approach and believes its franchisees could bring a unique, local touch to its social media presence. They needed tools for content localization, scheduling, editing, and managing customer communication in one platform to succeed.
Easily track performance in one place
Joey’s Restaurants realized that it’s critical to track how each of their restaurants is doing on search and social. But they lacked a master data dashboard with real-time data for easy analysis.


Joey’s Restaurants has chosen PromoRepublic as their local marketing intelligence platform to get more engagement on search and social while improving their locations’ online visibility.

To increase posting frequency and reach more customers, local managers have been using content library, scheduler, social inbox, and analytics. A nice bonus is intelligent dashboard which collects and analyzes data on local visibility so the head office could leverage insights to make data-backed decisions and increase revenue across locations.

Social Media Marketing

While the head office manages social media marketing at scale, local managers save time by scheduling ahead content across all platforms with a single calendar. Such automation frees up time for franchisees to optimize routine tasks and focus on best serving their customers.

Digital Asset Management

The head office ensures brand consistency by uploading, organizing, and distributing content for their entire chain. Franchisees use the platform as a single source of truth for branded content and campaigns, also utilizing pre-uploaded elements for more local approach.

Review Management

A single dashboard shows all reviews conveniently collected in one place. This allows managers to handle guest feedback proactively and increase metrics such as response rate and response time.


The head office can now pull out data for any specific restaurant and compare their locations by performance. By analyzing data generated by customers so they can make informed decisions and grow revenue across locations.
