Bertucci's is gobbling up the airwaves in the Washington and Baltimore area as part of its new $4 million advertising campaign.
Last week, the Italian restaurant chain, known for its brick-oven pizza, kicked off its new advertising campaign, which features a remake of the 1930s' Cab Calloway song "Everybody Eats When They Come to My House." The 60-second radio spot is also running in Philadelphia and both radio and TV ads are airing in Boston and Hartford, Conn. The campaign will run through mid-June.
Officials at Bertucci's say the company has plans to expand in the Baltimore/Washington market with at least 10 locations in the next two to three years and as many as 20 locations over the next five years.
"That whole corridor is ripe for future development," says David Nace, director of marketing at Bertucci's, which is already looking in places like Crystal City, Rockville and Reston.
Currently there are five restaurants in Maryland, two in the District and three in Virginia.
