  21. 21. A T L A N T A Right, doesn’t exist. Does exist, not by that name. This is a real assignment. You’re creative. I’m creative director. I wrote the strategy > you’re executing. I need one idea. Take thru strategy>you present it.
  22. 22. W H Y A R E W E M A R KE TI N G AT A LL? Breakfast has become a $50 billion day part and, over the last decade. QSRs such as Denny’s, IHOP and McDonald’s have pioneered the way, giving permission for countless newcomers including ChickFil-A and Subway to innovate, penetrate and encroach on what was formerly the domain of local kitchens and diners. Additionally, the concept of breakfast is no longer held by the 1950s depiction of it. What was once an intentional family experience is today a largely independent “grab-n-go” moment in time between getting dressed and getting to wherever you need to be. For the most part, it’s safe to say that anyone who takes time for a leisurely breakfast is either retired or having a meeting. Also, more and more people are discovering the South, and moving to Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and the Carolinas as ‘transplants.’ These people aren’t familiar with Atlanta Biscuit Company. They don’t recognize it as an institution. They aren’t aware of its long heritage. And they very likely do not appreciate what it means in these parts for a company to be family-owned and family-run.
  23. 23. WHAT IS THE MARKETING TRYING TO DO? 1. To convince quick-service breakfasters to try a less ordinary, more authentic Southern breakfast tradition. 2. To help quick service breakfast foodies identify with us (and promote our understanding of them) by aligning our core values with theirs.
  24. 24. WHO ARE WE TALKING TO? We are talking to people who don’t want to settle. People who don’t want to settle for the typical fastfood breakfast. Or the latest hyper-marketed breakfast new menu item. These people are seeking something more authentic – not only for their breakfast, but for their lives. These people are young and old. Professionals and blue collar workers. Retirees and college students. lifelong Southerners and relative newcomers. What unites them as an audience has less to do with age, income, and background; it has to do with priorities. In today’s modern world, the priority that unites them is authenticity.
  25. 25. WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE AUDIENCE THAT WOULD HELP US? Our audience is a combination of people who have lived all their lives in the South and people who have come more recently to live in the South. Both are part of the “New South”—a reference to the growing vitality and influence of Southern cities like Birmingham, Charleston, Nashville, Charlotte and Atlanta in the worlds of food, music, art, design, culture and commerce. The “New South” means authentic, modern, cool, original, comfortable, local, progressive, unique and genuine—all grounded in a strong sense of pride Southerners feel that distinguishes them from other regions of the country. For people who are newer to the South, they might never have been to Atlanta Biscuit Company or even enjoyed biscuits regularly for breakfast. If they have had a biscuit before, it’s likely to have been part of a dinner meal. This part of our audience appreciates everything the South has to offer and have embraced it. They are not looking to re-invent the South but to connect with it and become part of its re-invention. To them, attending a sporting event or a NASCAR race, taking a side in the Eastern-style/Western-style barbecue debate, getting hooked on college basketball and enjoying a real Southern biscuit (with grits) are all part of the New Southern experience.
  26. 26. It was their desire not to settle that attracted our audience to the South in the first place. In larger, more expensive and metropolitan cities, they had no choice but to settle for the terms already established to live there, to succeed there, to move up there and to be part of society there. The New South is more open. It accepts new people and new ideas as part of its own re-invention. There is a prevailing sense of discovery, of energy and opportunity. The South is, in the best sense of the phrase, on the rise and it is doing so by being true to its genuine, unpretentious, easy-going authentic self. Where other restaurants represent conformity, Atlanta Biscuit Company represents originality. Atlanta Biscuit Company represents all that is good and great about the New South – where humility is still prized and practiced; where people you’ve never met take the time to say Hello; where hurried drivers wave your car in ahead of theirs; where politeness is still in fashion, the golden rule still applies and people appreciate the simple things in life. People see Atlanta Biscuit Company as a quaint throwback to Southern charm – representing and preserving the values Southerners hold dear. It is that, but it’s also a whole lot more. It’s a gateway to the New South, to a way of life that is honest and good, and as a catalyst for taking a good thing and making it better.
  27. 27. WHAT IS THE MAIN THOUGHT WE WANT TO COMMUNICATE? At the Atlanta Biscuit Company, let your best self shine.
  28. 28. WHY SHOULD PEOPLE BELIEVE US? Atlanta Biscuit Company’s local authenticity is itself part of what makes the New South shine: Atlanta Biscuit Company was born in the South; Atlanta Biscuit Company lives in the South (you won’t find it throughout the nation, or even up and down the East Coast, because Atlanta Biscuit Company is only in the South); Atlanta Biscuit Company believes in the South—is a partner with its communities, is true to its roots and cherishes them; Atlanta Biscuit Company is Southern, not Country, and appreciates the difference. ! WHAT IS THE BEST WAY OF DOING THIS? Most people have eaten at Atlanta Biscuit Company at least once and, if they haven’t, they are at least aware of it. We need to show how Atlanta Biscuit Company is different, open and authentic. Are there ways to show how it’s best to have a choice when too many things are alike? If the brand can reflect the customer honestly, the change will prompt retrial. With 60% of customers engaging at the drive-thru, how can we enhance this experience to make it more unique and capitalize on it as a potential gamechanger?
