Callahan leads brand strategy, customer analytics, creative, social strategy and activation. The agency is collaborating with the brand to launch their newest flavor, Jalapeño & Bacon, which hits grocery shelves in May.

“We’ve been working with Callahan since last summer, and it’s been fun to see our bold brand come to life with consumers in a way that matches our seriously delicious product portfolio.” noted co-founder Trey Taylor. “I’m excited about our future and know that Callahan is the right partner for us moving forward.”

“We could not say yes fast enough once we were introduced to the brand. There’s nothing that gets us more excited than to see innovation brought to a category that has been lacking it. The current portfolio is original and consumers are loving the unique flavors. The brand is just getting started and we are grateful to be the partner to help push its continued growth,” stated Chris Marshall, CEO & President at Callahan.

The founders are serious about making unique, delicious flavors while having a little fun along the way. SERIOUS Bean Co is owned and operated by Lakeside Foods — a premier supplier of high-quality frozen and canned foods to the retail, food service and industrial sectors that is headquartered in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
