Recent Success


Murphy O'Brien developed a strategic media and influencer campaign to generate awareness for 10 of the chain’s most underperforming locations. Coverage and social media exposure resulted in nearly 105 million impressions over the course of three months and a documented increase in foot traffic to those locations.


Murphy O’Brien continues to drive awareness and ticket sales for luxury theater chain and longtime client, Cinépolis USA. Our integrated services including media relations, influencer relations, social media advertising and social media community management have helped the brand’s awareness grow exponentially while supporting the opening of 3-4 new theaters each year.


Murphy O’Brien launched Mastro’s Ocean Club in Malibu amid heavy competition, securing exclusives in Modern Luxury, EATER and Los Angeles Times. Our efforts also led to EATER naming them one of the “25 Hottest Restaurants.” Five years later, that location continues to be packed, and we’re still working with Mastro’s.


Murphy O’Brien leveraged key seasonal holidays and new menu items by partnering with hyper-localized influencers and securing radio promotions with key adult contemporary morning shows, driving traffic to Islands Restaurants locations across Los Angeles.
