GOALS MARKETING OBJECTIVES:
This camapign will increase Moosewood Restaurant’s awareness amongst a younger target market.
This campign will increase comprehension by 70% and conviction by 50%.
MISSION STATEMENT: Spread the notion that protein and aesthetics need not be sacrificed when you leave meat out of a meal.
Moosewood, Inc. is located in downtown Ithaca, NY and has been owned collectively by nineteen members since 1973. It has grown from a small natural foods resturaunt to a large and diverse company; publishing 13 internationally acclaimed cookbooks. Moosewood focuses heavily on local, natural and health oriented vegitarian cusine and has been a pioneer in its industry. Ithas been named one of the “thirteen most influentialrestaurants of the 20th century.”
This will be a year-long cam-paign, starting January 2015 and ending Decemeber 2015.
Our primary target market is both men and women ranging from the ages 18-34 otherwise know as Millenials. The primary target mar-ket for this campaign will focus on the college students and young professions in the Ithaca Area. These millenials lead both social and health conscience lifestyles. The want a restaurant expierence that will reflect and benefit their lifestyles as well as their values.
ADVERTISING PROBLEM: T I M E F RAME :
There is a lack of awarenss and understanding amongst the younger generation with the Ithaca area. There is a general awareness of the physical restaurant, but not a full undertstanding of its unique attri-butes and principles.
The target market needs to be informed about Moosewood’s mission and efforts towards vegitarian and local cusine, especially because it is a pioneer within its industry. There is great potential in the sub-culture ref-ered to as hipsters. This target market’s values are very similar to Moosewood’s.
THE BIG IDEA-- “Hispster food that doesn’t suck”: This campaign’s main strategy is to target the sub-culture of hispsters and millenials in general. We will achieve this by using satiric content and ironic deisgns. Our main message is to show the target market how similar Moosewood’s mission is to their lifestyle patterns by using “hipster humor.”
DELIVERABLES: Within this campaign, there will be a circulation of three ads. There will also be a social media campaign that coincides with the advertsiements. We will use the social media platform, Instagram, to interactively spread buzz and awareness through creativity. We will provide incentive to particpate by using a socially responsible strategy, by giving back 5% of the meals’ profits to local sustainability non-profits.
