As the Agency of Record, 919 Marketing will provide a wide variety of PR and social media services for Fibrenew International to increase exposure and drive franchise sales while also promoting their existing national franchise locations through local PR campaigns.

Fibrenew has more than two hundred locations worldwide, from North and South America to Europe to New Zealand. Fibrenew has never before worked with a marketing firm, so when they made the decision to engage a partner, they were looking for a firm with a strong track record. They were attracted to 919 Marketing’s breakthrough public relations and social media success with other franchise clients.

‘This is the first time we seriously considered hiring a PR firm, and we chose 919 Marketing because their success is overwhelming,’ said Mr. Wilson. ‘It is rare that you can spark a relationship with a firm who has accelerated sales for clients in so many different industries. We selected 919 as our Agency of Record because of the firm’s excellence in brand development and franchise PR that drives franchise sales and customer traffic to existing locations.’

As a 919 Marketing client, Fibrenew joins an elite class of blue chip franchise clients, including, Senior Helpers, a senior care franchise that was recently named the nation’s second fastest growing franchise according to Entrepreneur Magazine, Doctor’s Express, an urgent care franchise recently featured on Fox Business News, and UNITS, a mobile storage company that has enjoyed more news coverage over the last six months than any of its competitors combined.
