ORA Strategic Partnership & Marketing Program
The Oklahoma Restaurant Association has developed a Strategic Partnership and Marketing Program, specifically with our Allied Members in mind. This program provides an "at a glance" review of all of the ORA's marketing opportunities for the year. It gives interested partners the chance to plan in advance, allocate their marketing budget more effectively and, if desired, pay from one invoice instead of being billed for each opportunity as it arises.

Each event, meeting, publication and educational opportunity is featured, along with a description of the opportunity, its objective, the designated marketing contribution and the return on investment to be obtained by the Strategic Partner. The program offers special Title Partnerships and new opportunities. Many enhancements have been made to existing programs, too. ORA's program offers an opportunity for any size marketing budget.

Additionally, Key Club partnerships have been established to further enhance the recognition and return on investment for partners who are marketing at a prominent level of $10,000 and above per calendar year.

This exciting program offers many opportunities, and we would be happy to help you identify those that would best suit your marketing objectives. Please contact Patti Colley at (405) 942-8181 ext. 229 or (800) 375-8181 ext. 229 with any questions!

Made in Oklahoma Coalition
What started out as an organization of less than a dozen Oklahoma food manufacturers in 2000 has grown into a 60+ member Coalition that proudly represents more than 28,000 employees and generates more than $4.1 billion in sales.  The Made in Oklahoma Coalition's mission statement however remains the same:  To promote brand awareness and consumer loyalty for Oklahoma food products through collective marketing for the purpose of increasing sales, maintaining business retention and expanding Oklahoma's food processing sector.

MIO member companies match public dollars with private funds to create marketing campaigns supported by retail advertisements, point-of-sale materials, billboards, radio commercials, social media, recipe contests, food service sales promotions, television segments and special appearances.

By purchasing MIO products, Oklahomans are supporting their neighbors, generating income for the state, and enjoying everything from mouth-watering entrees to tasty desserts!

MIO Coalition membership is exclusive to Oklahoma food and agricultural producers, processors and manufacturers who process, produce and/or distribute a portion of their product in Oklahoma. In addition, MIO members must be actively marketing their food products to retail grocers and food service establishments. With minimum yearly dues, MIO members receive a maximum amount of positive press and professional marketing services designed to create loyalty among Oklahoma consumers. MIO companies are included in several promotions throughout the year including radio, television, print advertisement, in-store promotions and much more. 

MIO, Good for YOU!  Good for Oklahoma!
