Pitch Brief: Whole Foods & The Millennial Foodie

By

Max

Whole Foods, the upscale grocery store chain, just launched a media agency review – a common occurrence when a brand experiences an entire year of declining sales. Sales at Whole Foods have been slowly, yet steadily, decreasing, like so much kombucha dribbling out of a leaky bottle. The trouble? In a way, it’s that Whole Foods marketing has been too successful. In their 36 years of operation, Whole Foods was one of the first and loudest supporters of organic, sustainable meats and produce, and much of their success is because they successfully persuaded America that organic = better.

Pitch Brief: Chipotle Looks for a New Agency to Freshen Up its Image

By

Max

Chipotle’s advertising has frequently walked the line of being just a bit dirty. Its turgid burritos stand five feet tall above freeway off-ramps, eliciting mouthwatering responses without even showing a sliver of a flour tortilla – an almost burlesque-like feat of marketing.

Pepsi Has an Upcoming Agency Review, but the Real Question is: Who’s still drinking soda?

By

Max

PepsiCo doesn’t just sell soda - it’s a multi-billion dollar global conglomerate that includes brands like Tostitos, Quaker Oats, and Aunt Jemima. But in their digital agency review for the Pepsi brand in North America, you can bet that agencies who understand how to sell soda will rise to the top like so many carbonation bubbles.

Meet the Fast Food Chicken Consumers – Can KFC Re-Colonelize Them?

By

Max

Crispy, salty, and crunchy in all the right places, fried chicken is one of the great American comfort foods. Unsurprisingly, fast food chains have been springing up for more than 70 years to serve the chicken-loving public. Chick-fil-A, Raising Cane’s, Zaxby’s, Bojangles’ Famous, El Pollo Loco, Buffalo Wild Wings, Wingstop, Boston Market, Popeyes, Church’s Chicken – they all have their own take on serving the bird, but they all have one thing in common.

Meet the Millennial Social Drinkers (First Round’s On Them!)

To be clear – this isn’t a deep-drive into young alcoholics. That’s an entirely different demographic, and one that really doesn’t need any booze-marketing efforts. The people we’re meeting today are a fun crowd. You’ll find them at the latest music festival, hanging out with friends at a craft brewery (or bringing craft brews to the campground) and waxing poetic about the burnt sugar aromatics of a hand-crafted bourbon.

“Waste not, want not,” as Grandmother used to say. And upcyclists – those who take their leftover wine bottles and use them to create attractive borders for their vegetable beds – are definitely following Grandma’s advice. Upcycling is reusing an object in a new way, without breaking down the original material (like recycling does). It’s environmentally friendly, thrifty, and increasingly trendy.

Meet the new demographic: The Lumbersexual

By

Max

Perhaps you too have spotted a ‘Lumbersexual’ out in the wild. I know I have. There he was, walking into Target, a mountain of a man, sporting a lush, yet groomed, beard that dipped from his chin to his clavicle. Bulging muscles stretched the red and white plaid of his thin flannel shirt, which made me wonder whether he spent eight-hour days in the gym, or actually was a lumberjack by trade. His tight, distressed skinny-jeans gave him away. No lumberjack of my acquaintance would sport such skin-tight duds.

Numerous studies, as well as anecdotal evidence, have shown that the concept of a “healthy lifestyle” changes with each generation. The Greatest Generation and their Baby Boomer offspring tend to associate health with vitamins and regular medical care. Millennials, on the other hand, have made a name for themselves by considering health to be an ongoing lifestyle, encompassing organic foods and regular exercise. Or, at least, that’s the story reported on most media sites.
