Fogo de Chao Corporate PR:


Founded in 1979 by the Coser brothers, Arri and Jair, Fogo de Chão is a renowned chain of Brazilian steakhouses that adopts the rodízio-style of dining. This culinary hotspot is celebrated for its mastery in Southern Brazilian cuisine, offering patrons a rich selection of churrasco barbecued meats, complemented by a variety of traditional side dishes.

The Challenge

Konnect was tasked with helping change consumer perception of the 45-year-old Fogo de Chão brand. The challenge was to reposition Fogo from a Brazilian Churrascaria to a modern, discovery dining experience.

The Solution

We accomplished this by increasing the volume and cadence of national press and influencer content that specifically highlighted updated messaging and key brand differentiators.

The Proof

•On average, monthly PR impressions increased by 554M impressions
•1,163 placements secured
•5.7B+ media impressions
•135 pieces of influencer content
•1.97M total potential influencer impressions
