How much does a restaurant marketing campaign cost?

Get a budget launch from as little as $6,000 which will get you into key media. The full-service launch packages including PR, social media and function marketing start from $20,000. A marketing campaign for an event will start at $3,000

Am I a good client for Papaya?

Generally, Papaya works with hotel and restaurant groups rather than standalone venues. That said if you have a large format venue or exciting story to tell, we would love to hear about it.

What sets Papaya apart from other marketing agencies?

We are the hospitality launch specialists. Papaya’s expertise in social media, design, photography and PR means we can provide all the services to have a value-driven launch without the expense of large, cumbersome agencies.

What is the process of working with Papaya?

Papaya has a very structured and transparent approach to working. Expect to get a monthly breakdown of your content, results and an ad planner for the coming month so your senior management team can see everything at a glance.

How do you measure the results of social media marketing?

At the beginning of every campaign we set KPI’s benched on your business objectives, providing a report monthly.

When is the best time to work with us?

Ideal timing is to speak to us at least 4-6months before product launch. That said, if you are a start-up, it’s crucial to get widespread distribution prior to investing in agency marketing.
