TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — There's "I love New York," ''Everything's bigger in Texas," and of course, "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."
But what about Toledo?
Community leaders and enthusiasts in Ohio's fourth-largest city have been working for the past three-and-a-half years to build a new brand for the home of Tony Packo's and the Mud Hens.
The Toledo Blade reports (http://bit.ly/Y1VCxw ) that they've come up with a distinctive narrative summing up what the northwestern Ohio region is about, a logo and a website.
Now all they have to do is sell the new brand to the region, the country and the world.
Unlike many other cities, Toledo's brand won't have a nifty catch phrase.
The brand paints Toledo and northwest Ohio as ground zero for a "New Manufacturing Economy" and emphasizes living, working, learning and enjoyment in the region.
