Executive Summary
Te central purposes of this campaign will be to increase sales through creating a stronger online
presence and developing promotional partnerships within the Rexburg community. Tis plan will run for a
fve month time frame beginning August 1, 2014 and ending December 31, 2014. In addition to the imple-
mentation of new strategies, this plan will take and enhance those tactics Shake Out is currently doing, so
as to better reach their target audience.
Te primary audience of this campaign are those BYU - Idaho students who physically live closest
to Shake Out. Tis includes students who live on or near the two streets that run adjacent to Shake Out, 1st
W. and 4th S. Te rationale for this focus stems from Shake Outs close geographical location to campus as
well as its strong pre-existing college student consumer base.
Te secondary audience within this campaign will focus on BYU - Idaho students who live on the
north and east sides of campus. Tis includes students living on 2nd S. and 2nd E. Tese students are less
aware of Shake Outs location and the quality food it ofers because they are geographically further away
from Shake Out.
Te frst two target audiences will be primarily reached through social media tactics and promo-
tions. Currently, the majority of Shake Outs likes on Facebook come from individuals aged 18-24. Also,
college students have an increased desire for promotional items.

Executive Summary
Te tertiary audience focused on throughout this plan will be young men and women ages 15-18,
specifcally those in attendance at Madison High School. Trough strategic partnerships with Madison
High School, Shake Out will strive to increase sales and awareness among the high school students. Tis
audience also includes Rexburg families of whom high school students will be one of the most infuential
mediums of accessing.
Te budget determined for this public relations plan is $500 a month which in total is $3000
throughout the entire fve month campaign. Tis includes costs associated with advertising, events, pro-
motions and all other methods of communication. Evaluation during and at the conclusion of the cam-
paign will play a key role in determining its overall efectiveness.

Background
Shake Out is a fast food restaurant which began in Kimberly, Idaho in the 1960s. In 1970 a man
named Byrd purchased the establishment and moved its location to Twin Falls, Idaho. Bryd changed the
companys name to Bs Shake Out. During this time the restaurant was a walk-up only restaurant. Tis all
changed one day as something slid of from a passing truck and went through the front of the building.
Upon remodeling, a small lobby for customers was added to the new building.
Afer the 1970s Shake Out had many diferent owners. Te Shake Out name was retained and in
2006 the Water family bought the restaurant to give their kids some good work experience. Looking to add
an additional location, the Waters opened a Rexburg Shake Out in June 2012.
Shake Out is best known for its large variety of shakes. Te restaurant has over 50 favors to choose
from. Tese over-the-top shakes were frst started at Bs Shake Out in the 1970s. Breakfast items are avail-
able all day at the Rexburg location and both this and the restaurant in Twin Falls ofer a menu for kids
meals. Today Shake Out is a popular hangout for BYU - Idaho students in Rexburg and an old family tradi-
tion for those loyal customers in Twin Falls.

Situation Analysis
Shake Out has now been in Rexburg for a little over two years. An adequate presence has been
established among BYU - Idaho students who comprise the majority of Shake Outs revenue. However,
there are still many students who are unaware of Shake Out despite its prominent location. Local Rexburg
residents are also less aware of Shake Out and are more apt to rely on other fast food competitors. Online
marketing is being used by the restaurant but can be improved for increased efectiveness.
Competitive Analysis:
Top competitors include: McDonalds, Dairy Queen, Arctic Circle, BYU - Idaho Crossroads, Coldstone,
Scoops, Nielsens, Kiwi Loco, Te Soda Vine

Audience
Primary Audience:
Single BYU - Idaho students who live within close proximity of Shake Out
Tis is the current demographic of the majority of Shake Out customers. Reaching out to more students
in this location has the greatest opportunity for success.
Secondary Audience:
Single BYU-Idaho students that live on the north and east sides of campus
Because the atmospheres of Shake Out targets individuals aged 18-24, we want to reach as much of that
demographic as possible. However, students on the north and east sides of campus are less likely to be
aware of Shake Out because it is not in their direct vision.
Tertiary Audience:
Young men and women ages 15-18 who attend Madison High School. Also included within this audience are
any other local Rexburg residents.
Since students are constantly changing every four months, creating loyal community customers will in-
crease sales during school breaks and holidays.
