Marketing students from South Forsyth High School recently took on the challenge of creating a grassroots advertising campaign to promote Village Burger, which recently opened in Downtown Cumming. Students were divided into teams and asked to create 4 unique promotions to promote the new restaurant. They created advertisements, determined the cost to implement their ideas, and pitched their ideas to the owners, Ricardo and Julie Gonzalo. Mr. Gonzalo said that they were blown away with the students’ ideas and that their creations exceeded his expectations. They were so excited about the students’ work that they began implementing one of the promotions, a movie trailer created by freshman, Dominic Perez, immediately. Village Burger plans to implement multiple promotional ideas created by the Marketing Principles students who were led by their Marketing teacher/DECA Advisor, Chasady Shadburn, who is a former SFHS Marketing student. "The students were thrilled to develop a promotional campaign for such a fun and unique business like Village Burger. We were so excited to present for the owners and to hear their feedback on the student's ideas. The students are looking forward to seeing some of their ideas implemented in the future."
