Waco We Do (Waco slogan)

"Waco We Do” is the Waco city slogan promoted by the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce in 2006. The new slogan is intended to stress the city’s “can-do” attitude.

The 2004-trademarked slogan “Keep Waco Wacko” (similar to “Keep Austin Weird”) is a very unofficial slogan for the same city.

New Waco slogan talks up city’s can-do attitude

How does the slogan “Waco We Do” strike you?

Those words will appear on TV, radio and print ads in the coming months as the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce seeks to change perceptions of the city.

“We want to give people permission to brag a little bit about where they live, not duck their heads when they’re asked where they’re from,” said Dean Riley, with the local marketing firm Innovation that came up with the slogan and is preparing the media blitz.

A slogan alone won’t change Waco’s image. But “Waco We Do” is more than that, local leaders say. Changing perceptions is one of five major goals the chamber is pursuing as part of an economic development strategy. It came up with these goals with help from the community and Market Street Services, an Atlanta consulting firm.

The chamber Wednesday introduced its “Waco We Do” campaign to about 150 people in the Waco Convention Center. The community will begin seeing the ads this week.
