Partnership to Create a Fresh Look and Feel, New Marketing Campaigns and Tailored Guest Communications
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dave & Buster’s Entertainment, Inc., (NASDAQ:PLAY), (“Dave & Buster’s” or “the Company”), an owner and operator of entertainment and dining venues, today announced that it has engaged Mother in New York (“Mother”) as its new creative agency of record. The agency will deliver new national and regional marketing campaigns and enhanced, tailored communications with Dave & Buster’s guests.
“We are excited to work with Mother to deliver a fresh look and feel to our advertising campaigns and guest communications,” said Brian Jenkins, Chief Executive Officer. “As we continue to reopen more of our locations and bring fun back to the communities we serve, this partnership will enable us capitalize on technology upgrades, enhanced data analytics and digital marketing investments to drive deeper engagement with our guests.”

Mother was founded in London in 1996 by a group of creative, free-thinking individuals sitting around a kitchen table eating lunch. It’s here that the group decided that they were hungry to do things differently. They wanted to break free from the shackles of traditional agencies and be 100% independent. Today, Mother is still fiercely independent, with offices across London, New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, and South America. For more information, visit motherfamily.com.
