Challenge

  • In the target geographies, Brand only known as a donut shop, not as a beverage destination (a highly profitable segment)

Insight

  • Texas is a critical emerging market for Dunkin’ Donuts
  • That market, in particular, loved their coffee and donuts – but thought to satisfy their cravings in different locations

Strategies

  • Leveraged an engaging promotion that “pitted” high schools against each other, vying for grand prize.
  • Created unique beverage sampling opportunities across high school campuses to drive consideration and visit to location

  • School with the most votes won $5,000
