It’s never too late for
a brand to find itself.
How your grandad’s favorite roast beef shop became the fastest growing restaurant brand in America posting 20% sales growth on the back of the world’s most effective brand campaign in 2018. Seriously.
Arby’s had a problem. Specifically, it had a roast beef problem. 50 years of marketing roast beef sandwiches had worked so well, that when the brand diversified its portfolio and quality of meats, consumers were literally blind to it…
“I wish they sold chicken sandwiches.”
- A customer, standing in front of an Arby’s menu board, that HAD chicken sandwiches on it. Seriously.
We showed it how it is.
A repositioning designed to visually and tonally force consumers to reassess their perceptions of the brand.
The supporting campaign unapologetically shoved deli-quality meat rounds in people’s faces to meat proselytizing courtesy of Ving Rhames became an envy of the entire industry.
We proved the
No one actually believed that Arby's smoked their Brisket for 13 hours, even though it's true. So we showed them, right to their faces, with a 13 hour long commercial that won a Guinness World Record for the longest commercial to ever air on television.
We apologized for our mistakes.

And we never ran

A orchestrated long running spat with Jon Stewart punctuated the product work, helping elevate it into the annals of the all-time great brand campaigns.
All to say, the work completely changed the course for Arby's.
the brand became America’s fastest growing restaurant, posting 20% sales growth, earning the 2018 gold global Effie for sustained success. You read that right, it was the most successful brand campaign in the world.
