Local restaurant chain Maxim’s Caterers Limited has selected WE Communications (WE) as its communications partner to launch its first The Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Hong Kong.

Through integrated storytelling, WE will continue the momentum of the restaurant’s presence in the region, by continuing to drive a strong brand message, while also managing the restaurant’s owned and paid channels in Hong Kong.

To deliver against the needs of the account, the agency has created an integrated team in its Hong Kong office that combines staff and consumer expertise from across digital, creative, content, and PR.
