Score 89 - Review Imminent: Outback names CMO amid 'Steak Authority' initiatives

Subject: Digital, TV, radio, outdoor, Hispanic media, social media

Company: Outback Steakhouse, part of Bloomin' Brands' portfolio

Opportunity: It looks like Bloomin' Brands is switching everything up these days. In addition to naming a chief brand officer at the company-level in June, Outback has also named a CMO. Stephanie Gutierrez began her tenure as the struggling steakhouse's head marketer last month. Agency readers should already have Outback on their radar, but the addition of a new CMO only fuels the imminent review fire and takes the chain's score from 39 to 89, placing it within "Review Imminent" territory on our

Outback began implementing the next phase of it's "Steak Authority" initiative in April, which includes menu innovation, remodels and an increased focus on its lunch business (more here). While there's no word yet on the success of these efforts, a new CMO could decide to scrap everything and start over. Sellers - advertising lately is targeting younger diners, including business and professional audiences, so, at least for now, this should be your focus. 

Publicis's MediaVest, New York has handled Bloomin’ Brands media planning and buying since last year. 

Additional Information

Experience: Gutierrez joins Outback from Office Depot, where she served as VP of brand strategy and retail marketing for almost four years. Prior to that, she was marketing director for Bloomin' competitor Darden Restaurants' Red Lobster and also held a number of marketing positions of increased responsibility with Red Lobster sister brand Olive Garden.

Gutierrez replaces John Schaufelberger, who left Outback to take the CMO position with Smokey Bones this month.

Media Spend: According to Kantar Media, Outback spent $104.2 million on measured media in 2015.

National TV Spend: 

For the same period 2015, Outback spent $36.2 million on 20 national TV spots (25% of which were Spanish-language).

Digital Breakdown: Pathmatics reports that Outback has spent $452,700 on 67 desktop ads this year (34.6 million impressions). These ads were weighted more to Q1, so sellers should be reaching out for Q1 2017 dollars now. Over 90% of the desktop ads were placed site direct, with 8% placing through DoubleClick Bid Manager (Invite Media). Top ad destinations have included:,,, and

Outback has also spent $62,000 on 31 mobile/tablet ads (7 million impressions) and $1.2 million on 29 video ads (35.4 million impressions). Mobile and video ads were also placed largely site direct on similar sites as desktop ads.
