Restaurant Case Study: HoneyBaked Ham

The Challenge

The consumer demand for HoneyBaked Ham’s products is highly seasonal with ~60% of expected annual revenue being generated during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. This makes it crucial to create brand awareness and location awareness during these high-impact seasonal periods in order to drive and convert more consumers as they plan for the holidays.

The Strategy

Given that HoneyBaked Ham is a franchise system, national and local efforts require a balancing act that ensures marketing dollars are properly allocated in order to effectively promote brand and e-commerce awareness, while simultaneously supporting hyper-localized campaigns that drive customers to local HoneyBaked Ham stores across the United States. Location3 developed an integrated digital strategy for the Thanksgiving holiday season that included a mix of national paid media, hyper-local paid search, and holiday content on local business listings to drive increases in awareness, customer acquisition, and total revenue
