Subway® Franchise Advertising Fund Trust (SFAFT), selected Kinetic Corporation to develop a global communications solution that provides Subway's franchisees with tools that can be used to localize and personalize their communications and drive sales. The solution will debut at the annual Subway Global Planning Summit, held March 10-14 in Orlando, Florida.
The challenge was to create a toolkit to make Subway campaigns available to their franchisees in the right language with the right imagery on-demand with the ability to customize and produce locally as needed. They also wanted to be able to provide single store personalization, specific-market segmentation and maintain a certain amount of control so that local marketing campaigns aligned with the overall brand strategy.
"This is world-class," said Jeff Whitney, VP Field Marketing, SFAFT. "The infrastructure Kinetic is providing is revolutionary and will make a huge difference in the ability of our franchisees across the globe to effectively market their stores."
Kinetic designed "My Marketing Toolkit" for the Subway franchisees to develop multilingual materials that can be localized and personalized in a way that's relevant to their target markets and also comply with corporate brand standards.
"Collaborating with the SFAFT team on this project has been terrific," said Rob Zimlich, Kinetic Globalization Executive. "What Subway has created for the franchisees is amazing.
