Subject: Hispanic media, TV, print, local/regional marketing, radio, social media, digital, loyalty marketing, cause marketing, OOH
Company: Winmo), headquartered in Charlotte, NC, is a QSR that specializes in Cajun-style chicken and biscuits. Bojangles has more than 600 locations across 10 states, mostly in the Southeast.
Update (3/2): In an interview with AC&M Group is currently conducting research into “who the chain’s current and future Hispanic customers are.” This includes figuring out what motivates them to shop at certain times of the day and how they use mobile technology. When the research is completed (this spring), the chain will then “know how to approach TV, radio, digital, OOH and social media advertising.”
The findings will also be used in a multimedia campaign that will feature traditional and online media. No word yet on when this campaign might launch, but sellers should note that TV ads with the new AC&M-created tagline “¡Es Bo Time!” are already running on Spanish-language channels (unfortunately, I couldn’t find the video).
As DV has told you before, the Hispanic consumer market is the fastest-growing in the US, especially in the Southeast where Bojangles is located. Therefore, Southeastern Hispanic sellers (especially TV and digital) should be on the lookout for revenue in the coming months. Read more about AC&M’s appointment and Bojangles marketing below.
