Project Description

We pride ourselves on leading our clients through innovative ideas and our most recent one was launched in Q4, 2017 after about two years in development!

The Priory’s NEW ‘Cultural Celebrations” Menu Packages feature Eastern European, German, Latin American and Mediterranean cuisine with something uniquely special for Pittsburghers!

From day one of our marketing partnership with the Priory Hospitality Group nearly 15 years ago, we said that they should look at their property as a “beautiful blank canvas” for entertainment and making memories.


For example our first creative concept was a Winter White Wedding package to help the brand increase First Quarter sales by 400% and they achieved record results!

Seeing the success of brands such as Ancestry.Com and appreciating Pittsburgh’s rich “melting pot” cultural history, we thought unique cultural cuisine packages would lift the brand to greater heights! And, knowing that the Priory’s roots in Deutschtown in Pittsburgh’s North Side, a neighborhood settled by German, Swiss and Austrian immigrants, and their pride (Pittsburghers pride too) of Western Pennsylvania’s rich cultural tapestry we knew we were on to something.  

In that spirit of partnership, we helped them create four (five if you count Pittsburgh as a separate cuisine!) unique packages which celebrate Pittsburgh’s diversity and acknowledge that learning about and experiencing our various heritages not only adds to the strength of a region, but it makes life a lot more fun!  
We started with menus honoring Eastern European (Old Europe), German (Deutschtown), Latin American and Mediterranean heritages, and look forward to expanding our portfolio in the future. These Cultural Celebration Packages are available now at their Priory Hotel, Grand Hall and Mansions on Fifth property in Shadyside.

In addition, our new “Pittsburghese” menu showcases food you might see at a Steeler tailgate party – simple but fun comfort food.  For our “Pittsburghesque” menu, we looked to Pittsburgh’s fine dining past to create a more elegant cuisine.  We conducted research with local cultural and hospitality experts, curated historic cookbooks and discovered menus from some of Pittsburgh’s iconic restaurants, such as the Park Schenley, Poli’s and more to inspire these unique menus.

These new dining entertainment offerings are perfect station-type menus for corporate, social and non-profit events, but likewise lend themselves to family-style or French services for wedding couples looking to honor their own ethnic heritages.  We know people will love them!
