Promotion debuts partnership of Popeyes®
Louisiana Kitchen with new digital AOR Campbell Mithun
Are you feeling Spicy or Mild? Tapping the iconic power of the mood
Louisiana Kitchen has launched a national promotion featuring a "Mood
Wing" app (yes, as in chicken wing) that reports a Spicy, Mild or
Mixed rating of users' Twitter or Facebook posts. When consumers learn
their mood, they also receive a menu suggestion and related spicy, mild,
or remixed song from specially curated Spotify® playlists.
Developed by Popeyes' new digital agency Campbell
Mithun, the digital effort runs through May to support the
restaurant's Spicy or Mild Bonafide® bone-in Chicken
promotion that offers an in-restaurant opportunity for customers to
proclaim themselves Spicy or Mild.
"This element of the promotion offers a way for consumers to engage with
the Popeyes brand in a fun and personalized way," said Dick
Lynch, chief global brand officer at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen.
The promotion debuts the first work created for Popeyes by Campbell
Mithun, who was recently named digital agency of record. The agency will
support Popeyes with digital integration of key promotions, social-media
efforts, mobile marketing and analytics/reporting. Campbell Mithun has
deep QSR capabilities, having served clients including Burger King,
Dairy Queen and Chi-Chi's.
"We originally stepped into the social media space to go to where our
customers are and engage with them," said Lynch. "Bringing on a digital
agency is an exciting next step for our brand and will allow us to take
our online efforts to a new level."
"What we love about the Popeyes partnership is the passion surrounding
the brand," said Rachael
Marret, president of Campbell Mithun. "Their customers are in love
with their food and many are already active users of social and mobile.
And the marketing team is eager to stretch the brand in the digital
space, so we are excited by the opportunity."
To capitalize on that consumer passion for Popeyes, the May Mood Wing
app will deliver customized mood-indicator responses based on digital
analysis of recent Facebook or Twitter activity. Users can access the
app via www.popeyes.com
or Popeyes' Facebook and Twitter accounts. Sample Facebook posts follow,

You should come with your own warning label.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I think these belong to you)
Your spiciness would make a fire stop, drop, and roll.
You're hot! You're not. You're hot! You're not. (Repeat 73 times.)
You're like a yo-yo of unpredictable spiciness.
You're the flip-flopper of the fried chicken world.
If you were a late ‘50s jazz musician, you'd be Mild Davis.
You're the calm before the storm, but without the storm.
People call you "Mild Thing." And you make their hearts hum softly.
