Olga’s Kitchen, a Michigan brand owned and operated by Livonia-based TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR), announced today it has promoted Loredana Gianino from senior marketing manager to director of marketing.
Gianino joined Olga’s Kitchen in 2011 as a marketing intern and soon after joined the Olga’s Kitchen team as the marketing coordinator. Later she became the marketing manager and senior marketing manager.
“Loredana has created an impressive track record of success and made incredible contributions to the Olga’s Kitchen brand and TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants,” says Bill Angott, president and CEO at TSFR. “Her marketing acumen has been critical to evolving the Olga’s Kitchen market position through a time of great change in the restaurant industry. Her passion for the brand has made a tremendous positive impact. We look forward to her continuing to lead the way in her new role.”
In her role as director of marketing, Gianino will lead the Olga’s Kitchen marketing team and build effective programs to increase visibility and inspire growth while serving as the brand’s primary spokesperson. She will also oversee the catering sales team, creative and public relations agency.
With a desire to leverage the Olga’s brand to support essential workers amid the pandemic, Gianino led the creation and implementation of Olga’s Kitchen Feed a Hero program in May 2020. Donations are accepted through the brand’s app and website, and for every $10 contribution Olga’s will donate a boxed meal to a frontline worker. Since the program’s inception, more than 10,000 meals have been donated across the state.
Gianino has been highly involved in local charities serving as the volunteer PR chair of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for more than four years and giving her time at Get Fit for American Diabetes Association and Habitat for Humanity. She earned her bachelor's degree in communications and public relations at Oakland University.
