We recently had the opportunity to work with an amazing business located in the heart of our own community in Corvallis, Oregon.  The Kento Hibachi On Wheels serves amazing food and had a great location but as people walked by it daily or drove pass without notice, this Kento truck wanted the community to know what they had to offer to down town Corvallis. T.V. commercials certainly weren’t going to be the answer for a small food truck. With high priced commercial production and then paying $1000 a month to run a spot that doesn’t guarantee an ROI would be quite the gamble for a food truck.

When we connected with Kento we showed them what they were capable of, with so many free advertising platforms out there at their disposal. These platforms are social media sites that our society has become enamored with. You know them, because you yourself and all your friends and family are on them all the time.

Lets look really quick at the quality of what we have done for Big Business’s.

This is Cal Portland, they employ 100’s of Oregon’s local men and women. The idea that this quality and ingenuity only belongs to the fat cats and big boys of business is not a fact.

How can we approach a food truck trying to provide this quality and content to them?    It seams like it would cost them everything they had to bring this type of video production to a business the size of a bathroom.  Even then, if they weren’t going to use it for television where and how can they use it? It has so many business owners shaking their head, not knowing where to begin.

The people of Kento believed that we could provide and bring them something they can give their audience, meanwhile creating more traffic through total optimization of their social media sites.


Just by posting this video alone on Facebook they were flooded with amazing feedback from the surrounding community.

The post below was well received by many in our community.                                                14k people viewed the video, 66 people shared, 262 reacted, and 43 people commented. This didn’t just get attention on facebook alone, this post continues to increase foot traffic for Kento.  The ROI for the video and photography paid for it’s self within the month and then some.

Creative and new techniques like this are becoming a large part of the store front’s foundation and ability to thrive.  Something like this can help hit your goals through the year, whether it’s new equipment, a make over, or another location, advertising on a social media platform with the right content can boost sales and make those dreams happen.
