Red Lobster, a casual-dining seafood restaurant chain, appointed Real Branding, San Francisco, as its interactive agency of record last week after a nationwide search.


The Orlando, FL, company opened an agency review in March, narrowing the field to three finalists after numerous presentations. The Richards Group, Dallas, won traditional advertising responsibilities as agency of record. Real Branding handles online marketing.


Real Branding is charged with strategic planning for Red Lobster's online efforts, Web site development and maintenance, Internet advertising development and media planning.
