Mrs. T's Pierogies
Mrs. T's is the largest pierogy brand in the country. As with many legacy brands, Mrs. T's had a strong consumer base, but needed to drive growth among light users, non-users and millennials—as well as expand into new geographical markets. Driving awareness and trial was key, as most consumers are unaware of pierogies.
Several creative approaches were developed and tested to gauge consumer appeal, relevancy, and intent. The winning concept was "Mrs. T's Pierogies — Stuffed With the Stuff You Love," a nod to pierogies being pasta pockets stuffed with all types of tasty ingredients.
- Utilize traditional radio for mass reach in core market DMA's
- Create high reach/frequency digital campaign to drive awareness and conversion through an integrated approach with sequential messaging
- Use geography, lifestyle, and purchase data to target consumers who are likely to be interested in pierogies
- Built warm audiences and machine learning to find new consumers who are likely to engage with Mrs. T’s or purchase pierogies
- Geofence store locations, utilize pixels and tracking technologies to send targeted advertisements across devices to reach users at multiple touchpoints
The website was redesigned to integrate brand campaign elements, add fresher, more contemporary wording, and create over-the-top appetite appeal.
:30 and :15 videos were developed for pre-roll advertising and social media to introduce the new campaign — and re-introduce Mrs. T’s Pierogies to a new generation of pierogy lovers.
