With help from Powers Agency, Frisch’s Big Boy placed its messaging right in a competitor’s grill, or oven, as the case may be.
“I just thought, the nerve of someone to put their advertisement of a pumpkin pie practically on the side of our building,” joked Dan Busken, President and CEO of Busken Bakery.
The Busken’s fired back with a sign of their own stating “That’s Mr. Pumpkin to you Big Boy.”
“We’re just having fun, [The Busken's] are good people, they’re a good company, we’re having fun with them, they’re having fun with us, it’s all about pumpkin pie,” said Karen Maier, Vice President of Marketing for Frisch’s Restaurants.
