This week, Chase launched Mission Main Street, a multimedia advertising and lending campaign that focuses on success stories from a business owner's perspective.
Nominated by bankers for their unique stories, nine out of more than 4 million businesses served by Chase are part of the campaign. Focused on local markets, the advertising includes digital media, radio, business and trade print publications to deliver the entrepreneurs' stories directly to other businesses.
One of those Mission Main Street businesses is Chicago's Lou Malnati's.
According to a news release, the owners of Lou Malnati's, Mark Malnati and Mark Agnew, are growing their network of Chicagoland restaurants. Lou Malnati's specializes in Chicago deep dish pizza.
"These entrepreneurs represent the spirit of American business, and we're thrilled to have them part of Mission Main Street to raise their profiles and inspire others," said Donna Vieira, head of marketing and product for Chase Business Banking, which started the Mission Main Street program in 2012. "The stories they share help reinforce the power of a strong partnership between Chase bankers and their clients."
Other Mission Main Street businesses that used financing from Chase Business Banking, Commercial Banking and Ink from Chase include: bkr, Bronx Brewery, Hayes Industries, KC HiLiTES, Lam's Seafood, MedEx, Montalvan's Sales Inc., and Safari LTD.
