The minority-owned advertising firm, Ray Rico Freelance, has expanded its office and its staff to better serve non-profits, support Cooper Young businesses, and meet clients’ needs. To celebrate this growth, Ray Rico Freelance will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on August 14 from 11 am to noon. Go to the event page herefor updates.
The firm announced this expansion at an event in June. By obtaining the space next door to their 2294 Young Ave. office, Ray Rico Freelance has doubled its office space from 550 square feet to 1,100 square feet. In addition to the extra space, the marketing firm has doubled its staff. Senior Graphic Designer Joan Allison, Traffic Manager Zan Roach, and Interactive Designer Ben Bauermeister are now employed at Ray Rico Freelance.
“One of the reasons we have made this growth move is to deliberately create more jobs and to do so in the Cooper-Young community we’re so invested in. We are very adamant about using local resources to help grow the community and Memphis. We do a lot of printing work for our clients and we work with only local printing businesses. By doing that, we are able to support local small businesses. We keep more money here in Memphis creating more jobs.”
– Ray Rico, owner and principal designer
Ray Rico Freelance epitomizes Memphis soul by supporting the Cooper Young community by giving time and resources, and by providing special prices to local non-profit organizations such as the Soulsville Foundation, Madonna Circle, Mid-South Pride, and Friends For Life.
“Ray Rico Freelance is like a dream agency. They are great business people in that they are efficient, talented, affordable, and proactive, but their commitment to diversity and passion for community support is real. It’s not lip service. It shows in everything they do and it makes them that much more enjoyable to work with.”
– Tim Sampson, Communications Director for the Soulsville Foundation
