Young & Laramore recaptures Stanley Steemer account

On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Officials for Young & Laramore on Feb. 19 announced they signed a deal to create various forms of advertising for Columbus, Ohio-based Stanley Steemer, the nation’s largest flooring and upholstery cleaning companies based on sales.

The deal is no small coup. According to industry insiders, Stanley Steemer spends $50 million to $60 million in advertising annually.

The deal comes at a good time for Y&L, which, like most ad agencies, has been hit by the slowing economy in the last two years, a period that saw the firm lose one of its biggest clients, Steak n Shake restaurants.

Financial terms of the deal between Stanley Steemer and Y&L were not disclosed, but advertising experts said it could add a hefty six-figure amount to Y&L’s ledger. Y&L officials said they expect Stanley Steemer to be their largest client.

Y&L had the Stanley Steemer account from 2003 to 2005, when Stanley shifted its business to Dallas-based The Loomis Agency without a review. During its three-year run with Stanley Steemer, Y&L put together an award-winning campaign, including nabbing an Effie, one of the industry’s highest honors.

Y&L President Tom Denari, who will be in charge of the account, said the Indianapolis ad shop already is preparing for a Stanley Steemer television campaign, which is set to start airing in April. Stanley Steemer is known for its heavy reliance on cable TV ads, and ad experts expect the campaign to air heavily in Indianapolis and other markets this spring and summer.

While Y&L will handle all creative and production duties, Chicago-based Publicis Groupe’s Starcom will manage media buying.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
