Content-Rich Destination Promotes Party Planning and Customer Engagement

SALEM, Mass., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- King Fish Media, the leading provider of marketing solutions, was enlisted by Boston Market, which offers fresh home style meals in more than 470 restaurants coast to coast to build and launch http://holidayhub.bostonmarket.com/ a new, content-rich microsite with party planning ideas, tips and recipes.

The microsite will also drive social engagement, allowing site visitors to easily share content via email, Facebook and Twitter.

"The Holiday Hub site gives Boston Market an exciting new dimension of customer engagement. By providing the A-to-Z tips and tools for a terrific holiday party, we're able to offer not only great food, but a great experience," said Sara Bittorf, Chief Brand Officer, Boston Market.
