After almost six years, The Golding Group has ended its full-time working relationship with Rococo Restaurants, Catering and The Manhattan OKC. The first client put on retainer upon the launch of The Golding Group in November of 2011, Rococo Restaurants has been the agency’s longest client relationship. This working agreement ended on August 31st, 2017.

Rococo Restaurants owner Bruce Rinehart and The Golding Group CEO Kyle Golding first met when Rinehart opened the original Rococo located at 2825 N. Penn avenue in 2004. The two began their professional relationship shortly after Rinehart opened Rococo Northpark a few years later.

Over the last 5 years, The Golding Group has helped create and managed the Rococo brand identity, advertising and new business development for both restaurant locations and eventually Rococo Catering, Rococo Love Salad Dressing and the newly opened Manhattan OKC in the downtown central business district.

Since 2013, The Golding Group has been recognized by marketing and advertising peers multiple times for their work on behalf of Rococo Restaurants. In 2013, The Golding Group received Awards of Excellence for Integrated Marketing from the American Marketing Association (AMA-OKC) and Integrated Marketing Plan from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC-OKC). In 2014, The Golding Group received the Award of Excellence in Social Media from AMA-OKC and also the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA-OKC) for management of multiple Rococo social media accounts. Also in 2014, The Golding Group was awarded the Judges Choice Award coupled with the Award of Merit for Best Special Event from AMA-OKC.

“We have had an amazing time working with Rococo Restaurants on a huge variety of marketing, advertising, product development and special events over the last five plus years. With the successful launch of The Manhattan OKC in March of this year, we felt this was the right time for both of our organizations to explore new opportunities. All of us at The Golding Group wish Chef Rinehart and the whole Rococo / Manhattan OKC family the best of luck in the future. We’re looking forward to expanding our business in new and different ways. This includes attracting client opportunities in Oklahoma City, Philadelphia and new markets as well.”
