COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Aug. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Southern Concepts Restaurant Group, Inc. (OTCQB:RIBS), an innovator of the fast casual barbecue concept, has engaged Liolios Group to lead a new strategic investor relations and financial communications program.
"Southern Concepts is amidst a major transition from an owner/operator of three full-service Southern Hospitality restaurants in the Denver metro area to a modern innovator of the fast casual barbecue concept," said Southern Concepts CEO, Mitchell Roth. "Similar to how Chipotle disrupted the Mexican fast food market and created a healthy, fast casual dining experience, we believe an opportunity now exists within the barbecue market. Over the next 12-24 months, we will be rolling out our new fast casual barbecue concept 'Carve Barbecue' in the Denver metro area and then on a national scale after proof of concept is achieved."
"Given this pivotal point in our development, we believe our shareholders will benefit from an experienced team of financial communication professionals to help us navigate the capital markets and generate greater awareness of Southern Concepts in the investment community," continued Roth. "Liolios Group helps emerging growth companies like ours to enhance shareholder value by delivering the right message to the right audience, and establishing high-quality, long-term relationships with influential members of the financial community."
Over the course of the next several weeks, Liolios Group will work closely with Southern Concepts management to develop and execute a comprehensive capital markets strategy. Activities will include messaging and corporate positioning, strategic advisory and introductions to analysts, investors and other key influencers across the financial community. Liolios Group will also schedule a number of road shows and financial conferences for management over the next several months.
