Lauren Blackburn

Big Red F Restaurant Group
Marketing Maven
A genuine marketing maven and jack-of-all-trades, Lauren fell in love with the community and fast-paced, ever-evolving restaurant industry at an early age. Born and raised in Tulsa, OK, she worked in restaurants in high school and college and decided to combine her passions for hospitality and marketing into a career. She earned dual degrees in marketing and accounting from Oklahoma State University and, after a brief stint in graphic design, she moved out to colorful Colorado to help open Kachina Southwestern Grill with Sage Restaurant Group. Her marketing prowess caught the attention of the Big Red F Restaurant Group, and she joined the family there in January 2014. She loves working for a multi-brand family of restaurants, since each store and its respective market requires a different creative approach.  When she’s not covering all the bases in the marketing department, you’ll find Lauren enjoying the outdoors with her fiancée Kyle and their dog Samson. She loves hiking, fly fishing and trail running, and is a voracious reader and learner—currently she’s working on a digital marketing certification from the University of Vermont.
