GrubHub’s famous “The Food You Love” campaign was an enormous success for the company launching its IPO. This national campaign was distributed through out-of-home advertising, transit ads in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, digital ads, television spots, and social media posts — winning a Chicago Bronze Addy Award for Integrative Campaigns.

Along with “The Food You Love” campaign, in 2012 GrubHub launched an innovative way for restaurants to receive orders. Today, it’s commonplace, but GrubHub set the trend OrderHub, a tablet hub specifically designed only for GrubHub orders.
Social Media Content
Before GrubHub was a publicly-traded company, I launched its social channels and ran various marketing campaigns across all media. These social media campaigns were a focal point in GrubHub’s marketing efforts at the time, helping increase revenue 100% year-over-year and assisting in the acquisition of several competitors like MenuPages, Campusfoods, and Seamless.
In 2013, I created an April Fools’ Day campaign, KibbelHub. It was a huge success, increasing fan engagement on social channels and attracting new customers partially through the philanthropic aspect of donating $2 for each “early sign up” to animal shelters, resulting in over $10,000 in donations.
The campaign gained recognition from AdWeek and was promoted as one of their top 25 “Best Brand Hoaxes of 2013.”
