DUBLIN, Ohio - Feb. 5, 2016 // PRNewswire // - Today, Wendy's® is launching a new marketing campaign, internally dubbed Deliciously Different™, marking the latest milestone for the iconic brand in its 45-year history.
"At Wendy's our passion for quality has always made us unique compared to our competitors," said Kurt Kane, Wendy's Chief Concept and Marketing Officer. "With this new effort, we're more overtly celebrating the many delicious differences that customers tell us make Wendy's a cut above."
The new campaign is designed to allow customers to learn what makes Wendy's Deliciously Different. The first installment will focus onWendy's signature hamburger – Dave's Single™ (and Dave's Double™ and Dave's Triple™). The beloved classic features Wendy's fresh, never frozen* 100 percent North American square beef patty that's served hot and juicy right off the grill. Recrafted with a bakery-style bun inspired by Dave Thomas' original recipe, and topped with premium produce, like hand-sliced tomatoes, fresh, hand-leafed lettuce, crisp red onions, crinkle cut pickles and a fuller-flavored mayonnaise. Now, the hamburger is wrapped in foil to keep it extra hot, preserving the perfect balance of 'melt-in-your-mouth' flavors.
The advertising focuses on Wendy's promise to deliver fresh beef from locations close enough to its restaurants that the beef never has to be frozen*, and on improvements such as the new bakery style bun. The creative also includes "Easter Eggs" hinting to other experiences onGoogle, Tumblr and a microsite at Othr-Guyz.com (Hispanic: othr-guyz.biz) which educate the consumer through an infomercial about all the great things one can do with frozen beef, besides eat it. The campaign has both general and Hispanic market elements, with unique executions tailored to both demographics.
*Fresh beef available in the contiguous U.S. and Canada.
