About Us


Champion Soars

Fast forward a decade, and Champion’s exponential growth in the foodservice industry has vaulted it to the elite ranks of PR agencies, currently ranking as the second-largest Restaurant PR Agency in the U.S., and the fourth-largest PR Agency overall based in Texas. Entrepreneur magazine has ranked Champion among the leading Franchise Development agencies in the nation since 2019.

We Are the Champions.

Champion is a best-in-class, fully integrated marketing agency powered by a team of nearly 50 professionals who are experts in their respective fields and driven by a common purpose – to be an indispensable partner to our clients.

We recognize that every brand is unique, requiring thoughtfully crafted programs designed to achieve both short- and long-term goals. Our clients know they will never get a “one size fits all” approach from their Champion team.

Tim Schroder
Chief Marketing Officer, Retro Fitness

“I’ve worked with dozens of national and local PR agencies over my 25-year career and Champion is hands-down best-in-class at what they do — so much so that I’ve hired them three times over the past decade as I have made career changes.”

We are known for being both stellar and scrappy, doing whatever it takes to get the job done. We use creative storytelling to break through the media clutter, increase brand awareness and drive brand affinity.

We deploy multi-layered digital marketing strategies to reach and engage highly qualified leads and ultimately expand our clients’ franchising networks.

We take a comprehensive, omni-channel approach to paid and organic social media, influencer ambassadorships and media outreach to drive incremental sales. We put our clients in the headlines for all the right reasons and redirect the media spotlight when crises occur.

Our team works side-by-side with some of the brightest and most creative executives in the hospitality industry, who can attest to how Champion is more than their agency – we serve as a valued extension of their team. Together, we build and execute strategic, customized plans designed to achieve identified goals, boost market share, foster brand loyalty and more – all while exceeding expectations every step of the way.

Let us show you why, for more than 20 years, our clients have said We Are the Champions.

We play to win

Ok, Ok…we may be a little competitive. Whether that means developing strategic brand campaigns, landing a national morning show or taking a start-up to stardom, we’re in it to win it. We’ve won all the top awards in our field, but we’re most proud of the long-term partnerships we’ve forged with our clients over the years.

Todd Graves
Founder & Co-CEO, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers

“Since 2012, Champion has been a strong partner to Raising Cane’s. Their team has helped introduce our brand to new markets and grow existing markets by promoting hundreds of new restaurant openings. Additionally, the team has played a key role in communicating our commitment to our communities. I especially like that if you give them an idea or assignment they go for it and make it happen!”
