Sweet CeCe's signs up Gish

Booming dessert purveyor Sweet CeCe's has brought on Green Hills-based marketers Gish Sherwood & Friends to provide "branding and communications strategies, project management, public and media relations, creative design, web design, and social media strategies, covered with crushed walnuts and a cherry on top." The goal is to build Sweet CeCe's — which has grown to about 40 stores in 11 states — into a national brand.

“GS&F is the furthest thing in the world from a one-size-fits-all solution, and so are we,” said Mike Hissong, CEO of Sweet CeCe’s. “With GS&F, we have a marketing partner that’s a perfect fit for our corporate culture and philosophy, and one that’s proven its ability to deliver highly targeted and effective strategies in the retail and foodservice sector.”
