McKendrick’s Steakhouse was established in 1995 and has consistently been one of the best steakhouses in the country owing largely to its high standards for quality and consistency, its generosity, and its genuine spirit.
Brands can appropriately mention tragedies on social media by being sincere when paying tribute and by avoiding making your posts about your brand or your product.
