One of the co-owners, Matt DeMoss, agreed to let his establishment be a client for a graduate project. After initial meetings. The Meat Shed was seeking to expand their brand identity to potential stakeholders of the Pittsburg community and the surrounding areas. This idea from the client sparked the interest of the author to create a strategic plan to assist in increasing awareness and engagement between stakeholders and the client.
