Two Rivers Butcher Block

Two Rivers Butcher Block

Two Rivers, based just outside Chicago, creates handcrafted, end-grain, butcher block cutting boards. When they came to The Zimmerman Group, they were just getting their business off the ground. We helped them by designing a logo and setting up their e-commerce website. We also shot individual product and beauty photography, and kickstarted their social media presence. You can see their beautiful boards at

Pillsbury Fresh Bread

Pillsbury Fresh Bread

As the agency of record for 10+ years for Pillsbury/General Mills Bakery Industrial Flour and Food Division, TZG helped develop Pillsbury’s branded lines of fresh bread/bakery products, which achieved national distribution with sales in excess of $100 million.

We worked on the launch of over 50 new bakery products and were responsible for advertising, promotions, market research, collateral, public relations, and package design.

One of the highlights of our work was developing the Pillsbury NASCAR program with both a trade and consumer component.  We designed both the race car graphics and the driver’s uniform for Ward Burton. In-store consumer promotions and contests were used to generate consumer involvement and we hosted grocery buyers at multiple NASCAR events.

TZG also incorporated Box Tops For Education to attract younger families to the brand and build brand loyalty.
