As we were preparing to purchase Ballast Point, we knew we needed to bring it back to its roots and we also knew we needed a brand leader to get us there. After meeting with CUENTO it was clear to us that their approach of consultancy over agency was going to be the right fit for us. Wayne & Katie helped us determine where our brand needs to go and have been integral in helping us develop not only our plans, but also the team and the tactics to make them a reality. As the CEO of this iconic brand, I really enjoy having the ability to collaborate with the team at CUENTO on all things brand, marketing and beyond.
It’s been an absolute pleasure partnering with Cuento. Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many marketing and advertising agencies, and none have been able to match the warmth, exceptionalism, and professionalism that Katie and their team have been able to provide. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.
As a hyper growth company that was seeking to unite our brand, sales process and backend operations, C3 turned to CUENTO. After extensive discovery we emerged with an identity that was consistent from top to bottom and matches the image we seek to convey to our customers and the community. CUENTO was essential in helping us understand our critical success factors and create the alignment that is supporting our growth as well as the superior client experience we seek to provide. Thanks so much for being on our team!
As we launched the largest project in our company’s history, we knew we needed to find a marketing partner that could integrate into our existing team and deliver more than just impressions. Our team has truly benefited from Wayne and Katie’s decades of experience as we launched both Huntress Steakhouse and Lumi by Akira Back. From strategy to execution and all the way through reporting, CUENTO is right there along our side to make sure we are achieving our goals.
As an emerging franchise, we were having a hard time finding partners that would invest in our growth before we had the weight of many locations. Cuento was an amazing find. They are so much more than a marketing or advertising agency – Katie and Wayne consult with our owners across all success points – not just digital advertising. They are agile, creative, and incredibly supportive. They have been instrumental in bringing our studio owners together to increase collective success across the brand. They have embedded themselves in our brand and care as much about our success as we do!
