O’Charley’s Selects BOHAN Advertising as Marketing Partner



After conducting a national search for a new marketing agency, O’Charley’s has decided to partner with BOHAN Advertising to support its marketing initiatives.

“When we relocated our headquarters to Nashville we found a city with a deep and talented pool of individuals, companies and organizations that have since played an instrumental role in our efforts to revitalize O’Charley’s,” said Hazem Ouf, president and CEO of American Blue Ribbon Holdings. “It is gratifying to see our assessment of Nashville confirmed as BOHAN Advertising stands out above many advertising agencies across the U.S..”

O’Charley’s, which now operates 213 restaurants in 20 states across the Southeast and Midwest, was acquired by American Blue Ribbon Holdings in the spring of 2012. The acquisition prompted Denver-based American Blue Ribbon Holdings to relocate its headquarters to O’Charley’s hometown of Nashville, TN. Soon after, the company introduced a revitalization program for the O’Charley’s brand which included a refurbished image package, new logo and new menu options.

“We are pleased that after a national search for a new strategic partner, we’ve found the right fit here in Nashville in BOHAN Advertising,” said David Ellis, vice president of marketing for O’Charley’s. “We’re delighted to invest in local talent that understands our past, present and future, and will help us tell that story across all our restaurants and markets.”

“The vision, values and culture that Hazem Ouf and his management team brought to the table at O’Charley’s are well aligned with ours at BOHAN — passion, optimism, excellence and discipline, all in a highly collaborative environment,” said Kerry Graham, vice chairman and CEO of BOHAN Advertising. “We look forward to working with the O’Charley’s team to achieve their strategic objectives.”
