Madison+Main, an award-winning marketing and new media firm, is excited to announce Virginia Diner as an addition to its expanding list of clients. The Virginia-based restaurant and peanut products distributor from Wakefield—known as “The Peanut Capital of the World”—has engaged Madison+Main for social media marketing development for its three main enterprises: gourmet nut wholesale and fundraising programs, as well as its legendary restaurant.
“Virginia Diner, as the signs on Route 460 say, has been a ‘legend in a nutshell since 1929,” said Dave Saunders, President & Chief Idea Officer of Madison+Main, “We’ve all bought their products, either at the grocery store or an airport, or directly from a Boy Scout through their ‘Nuts for Scouting’ program (NutsForScouting.com). And the diner has been the one place my family has to stop every time we head to the Outer Banks. I guess you could say we’re a “little nuts” about the Virginia Diner, and we’re very excited to work with them.”
Virginia Diner has already made the first steps in engaging its customers on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Madison+Main will assist them with growing and better engaging their current networks, as well as building other networks for enhanced online presence and brand awareness.
About Virginia Diner
The Virginia Diner (vadiner.com) has been a refuge for folks who like down-home cooking ever since Mrs. D'Earcy Davis served hot biscuits and vegetable soup to hungry customers way back in 1929. In those days the little diner was a refurbished Sussex, Surry and Southampton Railroad car. As business grew, so did the restaurant with dining room after dining room added on to accommodate a growing list of satisfied customers. Today this peanut business has grown into a national and international gourmet mail order business, and The Virginia Diner is rightfully known as "The Peanut Capital of the World."™ Located in Wakefield, Virginia, The Virginia Diner is sixty miles south of Richmond and sixty miles north of Norfolk, halfway between Petersburg and Suffolk on US Route 460, only a ferry-ride across the James River and a short drive through farmlands and forests from Williamsburg, Jamestown and plantation country.
