Incorporated in 1969 by C. Robert Abbey and Nicholas D. Mecca, Abbey, Mecca & Co., Inc., was founded as a full service advertising, marketing and public relations agency. Bob Abbey, a journalism graduate from Ohio Wesleyan and former associate editor for the Rochester Times-Union, had previously operated a public relations firm named Abbey & Company that served as public relations counsel for a number of non-profit health agencies and trade organizations in Western New York. Nick Mecca, a graduate of Canisius College, was district director for The Muscular Dystrophy Association when he and Bob Abbey crossed paths. The two men worked well together and shared common values and work ethic. They saw potential for the new agency that focused on growing brands rather than growing big.

Together, the partners added clients such as Kentucky Fried Chicken of Western and Central New York Westwood Pharmaceuticals and Dunlop Sporting Goods. Soon the agency was able to provide a complete range of planning, creative and production services, public relations as well as media planning and buying.

Today, Abbey Mecca offers clients a comprehensive suite of branding, advertising and digital marketing services from website and digital content development to advertising, creative and social media.

Our mission is and always will be to help our clients build long-term brand value. We get it. We’ve been at it for more than 50 years. Our brand-focused culture puts our clients first, streamlines project flow, increases effectiveness and through collaboration, results in award-winning campaigns.
