Although Bubba had been growing steadily since 2000 (to over 20 stores nationally), the takeaway pizza category was losing a bit of momentum to new food fads. We needed to find a way to make Bubba stand for something amid a sea of same-same competitors.

Our simple solution was to recognise that almost all of the players in the category had forgotten the real, emotional heartland of pizza – so focused were they on racing to the bottom with discounts and offers. Our vision for Bubba would be for the brand to embrace its own unique personality and leverage some emotional truths abound why people really choose pizza. We’d make Bubba stand out by becoming the champion of relaxed good times, and Let Bubba make it better.

The wholesale brand transformation began at ground level: pulling the new platform through into uniforms, store fit-outs, in-store posters, signage; and then into the website, social, new store openings, video content and a highly strategic and targeted media and advertising program.
