My husband and I purchased an existing restaurant in North Raleigh. Vast Marketing Solutions was instrumental in the transition from the prior ownership to our ownership. We needed to get the word out quickly to the regular customers as well as attracting new customers. Marnie Settle was able to handle everything we asked of her very quickly and professionally. She was able to provide signage, menus, uniform shirts and comment cards for us. Also, she sent out a press release which resulted in an article in the leading business publication in the area.
